Kelly Clarkson has landed another TV role following her guest stint on "The Crazy Ones" last September. The winner of "American Idol" inaugural season has booked a trip to "Nashville" to appear in episode 11 of season 2 that is slated to air in January 2014.
"As you recall, one of the most popular songs of last season is a song that Gunnar and Scarlett wrote - 'Fade Into You'," showrunner Dee Johnson tells TVLine. "And in fact, in real life, [Clarkson is] actually cutting that song." Details of her role are not available yet, but she will likely sing a song on the show.
Clarkson made a big break in music after winning the first season of "American Idol" in 2002. "Nashville" won't be her first scripted TV gig as she has landed several guest-starring roles, including on "American Dreams" and "Reba". She's also tapped as the host of NBC's Christmas special, "Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Music Tale", which airs on Wednesday, December 11 at 9 P.M.
