Looks like Kelly Clarkson is a big Vince Gill fan! The Idol star decided to close her show on the final night of her Stronger Tour finishing out at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain.”
“If my mom was here she’d tell you I sang this damn song all the time when I was a kid,” says Clarkson. “I think it’s one of the most beautifully written songs, ever…He transcends genre. Vince Gill is so freakin’ cool!”
Clarkson becomes overwhelmed with emotion during the song dedication she makes out to her guitar player, Aven’s, uncle she says has been a “second uncle to him” who had recently passed away. She struggles to find her composure saying she needs a moment with “the Lord” before beginning a tearful cover of Gill’s masterpiece.
Gill – who wrote the song following the death of his brother – released “Go Rest High on That Mountain” back in 1995 taking home two Grammy’s for “Best Male Country Vocal Performance” and “Best Country Song” for his eulogic ballad.
Watch Clarkson pour her heart out singing Vince Gill’s emotional ballad in the video below.
