Remember back in the summer when Kelly Clarkson tweeted that Taylor Swift should re-record her old masters? Well, Clarkson’s now revealed that she got the idea from her ex-stepmother-in-law, Reba McEntire. “Reba told me she did that…She wanted to own her masters. And I was like, ‘Well if it’s that important to you, like find a way.’ And she recut all of her music and did it with the same musicians, the same everything,” Clarkson explained on a special Sunday-night episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. “That’s where I got the idea.” After Clarkson tweeted in July that Swift should “go in and re-record all the songs that you don’t own the masters on” following Scott Borchetta’s sale of Big Machine Records to Swift nemesis Scooter Braun, Swift confirmed on Good Morning America in August that she plans to re-record her first five albums next year.
