Pop powerhouse Kelly Clarkson has reworked her hit single "Mr. Know it All" into a track for country radio.

Clarkson is no stranger to the genre, having already had success with 2010's, "Don't You Wanna  Stay," her duet with country hottie Jason Aldean.

The new version of the song is a tad twangier and slower. It features more guitar, less drums and simpler production.

The song will be available on iTunes April 3, according to Clarkson.
