Kelly Clarkson is the latest music star to track her family heritage on an upcoming episode popular ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ reality documentary series, which is in its fourth season of production.
According to Nashville Gab, the Texas native was spotted in Americus, Ga. prior to filming her segment at the Andersonville National Historic Site. The location is the home of a confederate military prison where 45,000 soldiers were held during the Civil War.
