I'm talking about the "dabbling in country-music-as-a-second-language" phenomenon, of course. The Grammy-winning British pop singer is the latest in a growing line of artists expressing interest in dipping their toes in Nashville waters.
According to an interview with UK publication the Sun, Adele got into the distinctly American genres of country, bluegrass, and rockabilly during her time touring the U.S. She's hoping to tap into these for her next album.
"The melodies and to-the-point lyrics I have found in a lot of American styles of music is definitely something I'm going be pursuing heavily from now on," she told the Sun. "I want to spend some time in Austin in Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, and learn about it."
Just kidding. In my opinion, Adele actually does seems to be genuine in her respect for country music. In fact, she was nominated for a CMT award for her collaboration with Darius Rucker--the pair performed Lady Antebellum's hit "Need You Now" for CMT's 2010 Artists Of The Year special.
Do you think Adele will be successful in the country world? Be sure to let me know your thoughts.
As always, be sure to:
