article imageReview: Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson delight on 'In The Basement' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 29, 2014 in Music
Country music superstar Martina McBride is releasing her new studio album "Everlasting" on April 8, which was produced by Grammy winner Don Was.
One of the songs on there is a duet with American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, entitled "In The Basement," which was originally done by such classic R&B songstresses as Etta James and Sugar Pie DeSanto.
McBride's and Clarkson's version is quite stellar. They showcase a great deal of soul and sass. In various instances throughout the song it is hard to tell where McBride left off and Clarkson picked up. Their voices are both superb and they blended well to produce one fine vocal that pays homage to both James and DeSanto.
Her versions of "If You Don't Know Me By Now" and "Suspicious Minds" are also remarkable, proving that this forthcoming CD may be one of her best to date.
The Verdict
One thing's for sure. Fans of Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson will be listening to "In The Basement" on repeat and the last place they will find this upcoming CD is in their basements. Blessed with an angelic voice, McBride is one woman that can sing the phone-book and make it sound amazing. "In The Basement" garners an A rating.
