Kelly Clarkson Goes Country With New Song

Kelly Clarkson is in a country—and wedding—state of mind.

The 31-year-old hitmaker is throwing down big-time with her latest single, “Tie It Up,” a triumphal anthem just hitting the Web that’s the most countrified song Clarkson’s ever put out, replete with twangy guitar and even a banjo.[youtube_sc url=””]

And given that “Tie It Up” is about getting hitched, the upbeat ditty’s well on its way to being a perennial DJ favorite at weddings.

“Let’s set the date/let’s hire a band/let’s cut the cake/tie up the cans,” Kelly sings. “I love the ring of your name/you’re the ying to my yang/oh baby let’s give it a shot.”

The tune, which Clarkson performed at the 2013 CMA Fest, will officially be available for download via iTunes and other digital outlets on June 25.

Tyin’ the knot never felt so good!
