It’s no surprise that Kelly Clarkson can sing anything. She’s proven it time and time again with her Kellyoke covers of artists like whitney houston, Brooks and Dunnand Dolly Parton. But some fans are a little surprised by her latest duet partner.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joined Kelly on his talk show to discuss his new movie black adam and his love for country music. He joined Kelly on stage to pay tribute to the country music icon Loretta Lynndied October 4. Of course, most fans will remember The Rock singing “You’re Welcome” as Maui in the Disney movie. Moana, and who could forget his viral rap over Tech N9ne’s song “Face Off”? But hearing him sing a classic country hit is always surprising.

Kelly and Dwayne teamed up to perform Loretta’s 1967 song “Don’t Come Home a’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)”. Fans left hundreds of comments on the video.
- “What a world do we live in. Never in a million years would I have thought to see THE ROCK duet with Kelly Clarkson!!! Yes!!!!”
- “What a sweet tribute to Loretta. The duo we didn’t know we needed.”
- “This is unexpected, I didn’t know Dwayne was singing until now and loved her low voice which matches Kelly’s high notes she killed once again. What a beautiful tribute to the late Loretta Lynn :)”
- “His voice really fits that song. Who would have guessed that Dwayne was a country boy?”
- “So unexpected but so wholesome.”
Dwayne revealed that he grew up listening to country music and, as a teenager living in Nashville, even dreamed of becoming a country singer. He told Kelly, “I love Loretta Lynn, I loved her growing up, and I grew up on country music – traditional country music, like, three chords and the truth, a double fiddle, a kind country music on steel guitar.” He explained that he would walk the streets of Nashville singing Hank Williams, Jr., and he hoped someone would find out and say, “‘Oh, what are you doing? You should come sing’.” But that didn’t happen to me.”
It looks like everything went well for Dwayne, but we would love to hear more songs from him in the future!
