Kelly Clarkson shouts "no" to Minnesota-- again

Maybe Kelly Clarkson just doesn't like fairs in Minnesota. Last year, she pulled out of her State Fair concert at the 11th hour due to a sore throat. Now she's off the lineup for the July 18 Lilith Fair event at Target Center. She will be replaced by the Court Yard Hounds, the duo of Dixie Chicks Martie Maguire and Emily Robison. That means that LaRoux, who is touring with Clarkson, is no longer coming here to Lilith, either. The lineup for the downsized Lilith show includes Sarah McLachlan, Heart, Mary J. Blige, Metric, Kate Nash and Court Yard Hounds.
