American Idol Winner, Kelly Clarkson, Sells Texas Estate

Back to Real Estate News

Kelly Clarkson was the first and original American Idol winner. She recently surpassed Carrie Underwood as the bestselling Idol single of all time, and has been spending time on the road expanding her music career, working as a judge on a new show, and hanging out with her boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock. So, is it really a big surprise that she recently sold her amazing Texas estate? Some say, not really.

Built in 1993, Clarkson’s former home boats casual elegance. The estate is situated on more than 14-acres and features four bedrooms, six bathrooms, dual master suites, a theater room, and a gym. Outside, a large private pond, walking trails, dog runs, tree house, and both lap and diving pools punctuate the landscape. Clarkson spent a lot of time customizing her former residence that she purchased back in 2008.

So, what is Clarkson up to these days? The Texas native is a two-time Grammy winner who has a new gig coaching talent on “Duets,” another reality TV singing competition. As mentioned, she also has been spending a lot of time with her beau Brandon Blackstock, son of Clarkson’s manager, Narvel Blackstock. Narvel Blackstock is also married to Reba McEntire, who is one of Clarkson’s mentors. Clarkson notes, “The hardest thing about being in this business is just being able to be yourself. People act like there’s this one set of rules to follow to be a pop star, and I think, ‘Well, you say I’m a pop star, so maybe that’s not true.'”

After selling her Texas home, Clarkson is currently living in Nashville. She’s spending a lot of time in Los Angeles though because of “Duets,” working alongside Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, John Legend and Robin Thicke.
