Recently on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson covered the 1989 tune "New York Minute," which is a solo song from the Eagles front-man, Don Henley. 

The performance started out with some twinkling piano chords while Clarkson crooned with confidence. She sang the track's introspective story with determination, performing with grit as her voice soared (naturally). The intense drums kicked in for the chorus as Clarkson beautifully harmonized some high notes with her backup singer.

A song off Henley's album, The End of Innocence, "New York Minute" reached the number-48 position on the Billboard charts in 1990. Although it's a solo song by Henley, the tune is frequently performed by the Eagles in concert.

The Eagles announce final tour 

This fall, the Eagles will be giving their fans a farewell tour, called The Long Goodbye, to celebrate their over-50-year-run as one of the best-selling bands of all time. This will be their last-ever string of live shows. 

The North American shows will start in September 2023. More shows are expected to be added, and the tour is set to continue until 2025. 

"We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for embracing this band and its music. At the end of the day, you are the reason we have been able to carry on for over five decades. This is our swan song, but the music goes on and on,” the band wrote in an official press release.
