Do I like Kelly Clarkson? Yes. Do I like free music? God, yes! Do I like American Football? Not particularly. Well then, today is (kinda) my lucky day because Ms Clarkson has released a rousing (free) tribute to her hometown American football team, the Dallas Cowboys
Kelly Clarkson is one of five musicians- the others being Kid Rock, Travie McCoy, Ice Cube and Wiz Khalifa- been given the opportunity by Pepsi to write and record a song for their own favourite team. Kelly was apparently so excited with the honour of recording a song for the Dallas Cowboys, she penned the lyrics the same night she was offered the gig! Now that is a fan!
The subject matter is of course geared towards her American Football team, but I'm choosing to hear the song in a more generically inspirational way- I'm not sure I could really get into it if I didn't. Ignoring the lyrics altogether, there are some great vocals to be heard here, especially at the end; but we've come to expect nothing less from this American Idol winner.
I can't wait to hear Kelly Clarkson sing this live in front of a home crowd when the Dallas Cowboys are playing: it's sure to electric.
