Since she’s been gone

Admit it, Kelly Clarkson‘s rendition of the Patty Griffin (genius!) song "Up To the Mountain (MLK Song)" on American Idol last week reminded you of just how much you love Miss Independent, didn’t it?

Her new album (My December) won’t be released until this summer, but you’ll be happy to know that yesterday she announced the dates for the accompanying tour. It starts July 7 in Rutherford, NJ and runs through September 28, visiting 40 cities in the the U.S. and Canada. You can get more tour info at her official website.
