Kelly Clarkson said that one of Garth Brooks’ biggest hits is helping her through her divorce.

In a recent episode on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson told the country superstar that his song “The Dance” came on her playlist randomly and it made her think “that’s the thing” I was feeling.

“I kid you not, I was listening to my playlist and ‘The Dance’ came on and that’s the thing,” Clarkson explained.

She went on to explain to Brooks that she recently wrote a song for her new album that nods to his song “The Dance” with a special lyric that includes his popular track’s title.

“I literally, it’s not like your song, like a rip-off, but I literally wrote this whole thing therapeutically for me, and it’s actually on my next album,” Clarkson told Brooks. “It’s the whole kind of come around…the little tag part is, ‘even though my heart is broken it was worth the dance anyway.’”

The “I Dare You” singer said that she’s read and has been given many of books to help her through the divorce but it was music, specifically Brooks’ song “The Dance” that is helping her after it randomly popped on her playlist one day.

“I couldn’t quite nail down like the feeling. ‘I was like, well, you don’t want to crap on it. You don’t want to say that didn’t count or matter, but you don’t know what to put in it ’cause it didn’t work out how you wanted,” Clarkson said.

“That’s so crazy, you don’t know that’s going to happen and you’ve known this song your entire life and you freak out when it actually is a direct impact,” Clarkson gushed to Brooks.

“That’s a great song right there,” Brooks said to Clarkson. “That’s the character of a great song.”

Clarkson is currently going through a divorce from Brandon Blackstock, who she filed for divorce from in June. She was married to Blackstock for 7 years.
