Country Connection News Update - Bob Seger & Kelly Clarkson

While certainly not country music-specific artists by any stretch of the imagination, both Bob Seger and Kelly Clarkson have country music ties. Seger had a duet with Martina McBride called "Chances Are" in the 1998 film, Hope Floats. Kelly Clarkson has had a deeper flirtation with the country music charts with high-performing duets with Jason Aldean and Reba McEntire over the last five years. Both have new projects that are being released shortly.

For the first time, all of Bob Seger’s top hits have been gathered for a career-spanning 2CD and digital collection titled Ultimate Hits: Rock And Roll Never Forgets.  To be released Monday, November 21 by Capitol/EMI, the 26-track collection includes “Night Moves,” “Turn The Page,” “Hollywood Nights,” “Mainstreet,” “Old Time Rock And Roll,” “Like A Rock,” “Her Strut,” “We’ve Got Tonight,” “Against The Wind,” “Still The Same,” and many other Seger classics, as well as the Detroit rocker’s two #1 radio singles from this year, “Downtown Train” and his current #1 Classic Rock hit, “Hey Hey Hey Hey (Going Back To Birmingham).”

The collection also includes Seger’s timeless rendition of the Holiday classic “Little Drummer Boy,” its first appearance on a Bob Seger album, as well as the original mono version of Seger’s first hit “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man.”  

Kelly Clarkson has employed a unique method to tease fans with new songs from her Stronger album, being released Monday, October 24th. She’s called upon friends to help officially leak her songs one at a time. So far, the singer has treated fans to “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)” “Dark Side” and “You Love Me.”

This week, Kelly Clarkson has leaked “The War Is Over” with the help of good friend Blake Shelton. There's no denying the girl has pipes.
