American Idol alum, and Grammy award winning solo artist, Kelly Clarkson is set to make an appearance on ABC’s Nashville when it returns in January. Clarkson will be appearing as herself on the show where she will be covering Mazzy Star’s 1994 hit “Fade into You.” This is not the first time Clarkson has run into this song; she performed it last year at a live show in Charlotte, N.C. at the request of an audience member. Nashville characters Gunnar and Scarlett have performed this song as well. “As you recall, one of the most popular songs of last season is a song that Gunnar and Scarlett wrote – ‘Fade Into You’,” show runner Dee Johnson told TVLine. “And in fact, in real life, [Clarkson is] actually cutting that song.”

Clarkson professed her own admiration for the song:

“This song happens to be a song . . . I know you all have these, your repeat songs that you just listen to hypnotically on repeat over and over,” she says at the performance, which is available on YouTube. “This is that song for me and I was very excited when I saw it on the fan request list.”

The pregnant Grammy winner joins a long list of country stars to have made an appearance on the show, joining heavy-hitters such as Brad Paisley, Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Chris Young and Kip Moore.

This will not be Kelly’s first TV stint having already made an appearance on CBS’s The Crazy Ones.

Keep an eye, and an ear, out for Clarkson’s appearance when Nashville returns in January 2014!

Even though the night really belongs to the movies, the Golden Globe Awards often finds some of its best moments stemming from the television acknowledgements that are handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. For the most part, this section of the awards is the only reason I tune in. My inner child has no use for the categories of Best Motion Picture (whether drama or comedy or musical), or for the same actors and actresses to be nominated in the same categories. It’s boring.
