Here’s one of our favorite Grammy performances featuring Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson “Dont You Wanna Stay.”
“Don’t You Wanna Stay” was met with generally favorable reviews by critics who considered the song as “a classic power ballad”. Critics also lauded the interesting combination between Jason Aldean‘s and Kelly Clarkson‘s voice.
“Don’t You Wanna Stay” was written by Andy Gibson, Paul Jenkins and Jason Sellers. According to Sellers, they were at Jenkins’ house when they started composing the song. He explained, “We just wanted to write a love song. We had an idea of what we were targeting. We didn’t write it as a duet. We wrote it, and Andy thought about recording it. After we got the song written, we played it for Jason. Jason Aldean‘s idea for it was to make it a duet.”
