Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway From Her Tennessee Mansion
It turns out that “Behind Those Hazel Eyes,” there’s a lot of real estate smarts! Songstress Kelly Clarkson just listed her sprawling Hendersonville, TN, estate for $8.75 million. The singer, who rose to fame as the first-ever winner of the reality show American Idol, bought the seven-bed, 11-bath spread back in 2013 for $2.8 million.
Located on more than 4 acres of Tennessee countryside, the waterfront estate is tucked away on a peaceful cul-de-sac. Built in 2007, the 20,000-square-foot mansion has elegant fountains out front. A grand foyer leads to a two-story great room with a fireplace, French doors, and mezzanine. A large eat-in kitchen offers plenty of seating, while a screening room and game room are perfect for entertaining. Maybe Kelly’s Idol-era co-stars Ryan Seacrest and Randy Jackson would be interested in swinging by to grab a seat at the cowboy-themed bar? Yeah, dawg!
Kelly is married to music manager Brandon Blackstock, and the couple have two young children of their own, as well as two from Brandon’s previous marriage. Brandon’s father, Narvel Blackstock, was married to country queen Reba McEntire for 25 years. (Yes, that means Kelly’s ex-mother-in-law is none other than Reba!) But Kelly and Reba certainly aren’t the only crooners who have a hankering for Tennessee: Sheryl Crow, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have called the Volunteer State home. But Kelly isn’t going too far: Word on the web is that she’s building a new home on her farm near Nashville, TN.
