Kelly Clarkson Vs. Carrie Underwood
Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are making a comeback around the same time. Clarkson started a tradition where she sings Tinder profiles on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Carrie Underwood is still a perfect 10 after her infamous face accident. The former American Idols are the TV show’s most famous singers for a major reason.
Without question, the names Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood will go down in music history. Clarkson and Underwood are a part of the fabric of American popular culture. Plus, who can stop listening to their music?
Carrie and Kelly can sing with the best, but who’s better? Is Carrie a better singer because she dominates her Country genre? Or is Kelly Clarkson a better entertainer because she concentrates on Pop, a more competitive field in a crowded arena?
It’s easy to say one is better than the other, but it’s harder to prove. I feel in my gut that Kelly Clarkson is the one I want to sing when it counts. However, Carrie Underwood cuts sharper records in the studio booth.
Kelly Clarkson, 36, was born and raised in Texas. That can only mean one thing. She has one of the biggest hearts. With heart, comes soul.
Carrie Underwood, 35, was born in Oklahoma. She grew up listening to country legends like Dolly Parton. Nowadays, she’s influenced country music artists in her own right. In my eyes, she’s a brighter star than Miranda Lambert, who helps define modern day country music.
Overall, Carrie has had a more financially successful career than Kelly. However, the major difference is the Texas songstress has yet to reach the peak. Kelly Clarkson is one hit shy away from greatness.
Clarkson conquers the microphone, but Underwood’s voice is too great to ignore. Maybe, Carrie Underwood’s vocal chords are superior to Kelly Clarkson’s chops. But deep down where it matters, the diaphragm, Kelly has the voice. That’s why she is a coach on the Voice.
It’s up to the fans to decide. Who is better between Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood? I think I’ve answered the question. Your mind is made up on Carrie, but your gut yelps Kelly.
