Kelly Clarkson Reveals That This Garth Brooks Song Is Helping Her Through Her Divorce With Brandon Blackstock

Kelly Clarkson has named the Garth Brooks song that’s helping her go through her divorce with Brandon Blackstock.

During the December 14 episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the 38-year-old singer had Garth as a guest on the talk show and before he performed, Kelly opened up to him about how his song, “The Dance”, has been a positive impact on her life in the current moment.

“So I’m going through a divorce and there’s been like a lot of books and people always give you stuff to like help, especially when you have kids and stuff,” Kelly explained on the show. “And I know you’ve been divorced as well. It’s like, man, there’s so much shame and guilt, and everybody sends you stuff, and I was just kind of working through it.”

She continued, “I couldn’t quite nail down the feeling, I was like, you don’t want to crap on it, you don’t want to say that didn’t count or matter, but you don’t know what to put in it because it didn’t work out how you wanted,” she continued. “I kid you not, I was listening to my playlist and ‘The Dance’ came on and I was like, that’s the thing.”

Kelly also revealed to Garth that “The Dance” even inspired a brand new song on her upcoming album, and promised him it’s not “a ripoff.”

“I literally wrote this whole thing therapeutically for me. It’s actually on my next album,” Kelly shared, before singing a line of it.

Kelly added about how Garth‘s song has resonated with her for many years but she never truly related to it the way she does now.

“I was bawling,” she said, “because it is true, there’s a lot of loss, a lot of grief and a lot of change, especially if you have kids.”

“All the books were helpful…it’s so funny, I guess because I’m a musician, I was listening in my room [crying] and I was listening to ‘The Dance,’ I got the point,” Kelly added. “Sometimes that’s so crazy … you’ve known this song your entire life and you freak out when it actually is a direct impact.”

Kelly and Brandon‘s divorce is getting a bit messier, as he is now asking for a lot in spousal support from her. She has also hit back with claims that he defrauded her throughout the years as well.

However, Kelly has been awarded primary custody of their two children together, River and Remington.
