Kelly Clarkson teamed up with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to cover Loretta Lynn‘s 1967 classic “Don’t Come Home a Drinkin'” for a special Kellyoke on “The Kelly Clarkson show” on Monday (October 17).
“An extra special #Kellyoke duet with Dwayne @therock Johnson in memory of the late, great @LorettaLynn,” the show’s Twitter account announced that morning.
“No, don’t come home a drinkin’ with lovin’ on your mind/ Just stay out there, on the town and see what you can find/ ‘Cause if you want that kind of love, well, you don’t need none of mine/ So don’t come home a drinkin’ with lovin’ on your mind,” the pair sing in unison over the song’s honky-tonk instrumentation.
During the performance, Clarkson rebuffed a playful kiss from the movie star as she sang, “You come in, kissin’ on me/ It happens every time.”
“Don’t Come Home a Drinkin'” earned Lynn her first No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart.
Lynn died on Tuesday, October 4, at 90 years old. According to a statement from her family, Lynn passed away in her sleep at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.
