Kelly Clarkson covered Patsy Cline’s “She’s Got You” on latest episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show during her ‘Kellyoke’ segment on Wednesday (April 7).

The performance featured the Texas native singing the popular country hit while backed by her band and a backup singers. The powerhouse vocalist has been a longtime fan of country music and certainly delivered with this cover of Cline’s traditional country hit.

“She’s Got You” was written by Hank Cochran and recorded in December 1961 and released as a single in 1962. In 1977, fellow country superstar Loretta Lynn remade the chart-topping country hit as part of Lynn’s tribute album to Cline dubbed I Remember Patsy.

This performance is one of several country covers Clarkson has shared on the show, including Billy Currington’s “Let Me Down Easy,” Faith Hill’s “It Matters To Me,” Pam Tillis’ “Maybe It Was Memphis,” Wynonna’s “No One Else On Earth” and Jo Dee Messina’s “Heads Carolina, Tails California.

Previous “Kellyoke” segments have featured covers of Blake Shelton, Martina McBride, Johnny Cash, Lady A, Rascal Flatts, Travis Tritt, Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and Kelsea Ballerini (just to name a few).
