Vince Gill wrote this beautiful song following the death of his brother. If you’ve not seen his performance with Patty Loveless following the death of The GREAT George Jones, at his tribute concert, please take a moment to watch it. It’s here on YouTube. It’s one of the most heart wrenching performances to ever witness. Just beautiful.
Kelly, you did this song proud. I would LOVE to hear you perform it with Vince. Your voice is a true Gift from God.

Clarkson’s powerful vocals and heartfelt delivery brought new life to this classic country ballad. The song, which is a tribute to Gill’s late brother, is a poignant reminder of the power of love and the hope that we will someday be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away.
Clarkson’s rendition of “Go Rest High On That Mountain” was a standout moment of the ACM Awards, earning her a standing ovation from the crowd. Her ability to convey the emotion and depth of the song is a testament to her talent as a singer and her understanding of the power of music to touch our hearts and souls.
