She won over hearts of her millions of fans as she delivers her touching rendition of the song I will always love you while paying tribute to country legend Dolly Parton at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards.
The event which was held on Monday, saw the singer of the Because of You, took to the stage at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas to honor Parton.
She greeted the iconic singer on stage and the audience gave her standing ovation.
After Clarkson’s performance, Parton, 76, said, “I know that Whitney is smiling down tonight.” Remembering singer Whitney Houston, she continued, “I was backstage trying not to cry my false eyelashes off — slinging snot in every direction and tears.”
“But anyway, that was an amazing job!” said Parton. She also took the stage for a performance of Big Dreams and Faded Jeans with Kelsea Ballerini from her upcoming album Run, Rose, Run.
Earlier, Clarkson had revealed the exciting news that she was paying tribute to Parton during an episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show last month, saying, “I love her so much.”
