Kelly Clarkson, Kelsea Balleriniand Carly Pearce all have one very significant life experience in common, and it’s not just being super talented and famous … they’re all recent divorcees and will be hitting the stage together for the first time to sing about lousy men.
Production sources from the upcoming Country Music Association Awards tell TMZ the trio are planning a very big and powerful performance of Kelsea’s song “You’re Drunk, Go Home” next month.
The song’s all about female empowerment, about guys who hit on women at bars after they’ve had too much to drink. Both Kelly and Carly were on the song’s original release — and Kelly actually got drunk herself when they got together to record it — so they clearly all have a good time together.
Both Kelly and Carly filed for divorce in June 2020 … Kelly from Brandon Blackstock after 7 years of marriage and Carly from Michael Ray after less than a year.
TMZ broke the story … it was in March when Kelly and Brandon reached a settlement — she got primary custody and he gets $115,000 a month in spousal support until 2024.
As for Kelsea, she pulled the plug on her 5-year marriage with Morgan Evans in August, and she’s been very open about how tough divorce can be … recently posting an emotional confessional from the bathtub.
So, given the shared lifetime experiences, the whole girl gang collab at country music’s biggest night makes a whole lotta sense.
