Kelly Clarkson has performed her song “Piece by Piece” over and over in concert and the song also gets the pop star emotional. But this one performance during her Meaning of Life Tour took on special meaning when Kelly’s husband, Brandon Blackstock, came out on stage to surprise his wife.
As Kelly sings the song she starts out with one guitar player who is switched out with another, Kelly’s husband. Unbeknownst to Kelly, mid-way through the song, Brandon walks out to cheers of the crowd. Playing guitar, the 42-year-old strolled over behind Kelly as her guitar player walked off. Shortly after Kelly turns around and sees he husband, unable to continue with the song.

Kelly’s emotional response was precious. “This is my husband,” the “Stronger” singer said. She then composes herself and continues with the song.
Kelly wrapped her Meaning of Life Tour, with Kelsea Ballerini and Brynn Cartelli, on March 30 in Greenville, S.C. Husband Brandon, made it a memorable ending to the tour.
While singing the lyrics, “He’ll never walk away / He’ll never break her heart / He’ll take care of things, he’ll love her,” Kelly turned her attention to Brandon, getting choked up. She walked over to her husband and closed out the song. “Piece by piece, he restored my faith / That a man can be kind and the father should be…” she paused to plant a big kiss on Brandon’s lips and a hug. “…Great,” she finished giving Brandon a hug.
