6 Country Stars Who Should Duet with Adele?
Country music has evolved over the years. More and more country stars are seeing their music cross over into the pop world. And now pop stars are attempting to break into the country music world. The most successful crossover has been Darius Rucker, the front man for Hootie & The Blowfish. But country duets with pop stars have been topping the charts for awhile now. From Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter's 'You & Tequila,' to Jason Aldean & Kelly Clarkson's 'Don't You Wanna Stay.' So why not have the hottest star in the pop world, Adele team up for a country duet. She's even said in a Rolling Stone's interview, she's been drawn to American country music. But who would be the best match?
Carrie Underwood can sing anything. She has that sassyness with 'Before He Cheats' and the soft side with 'Remind Me.' She even teamed up with Aerosmith frontman and Idol judge Steven Tyler for a special Super Bowl CMT Crossroads. If she can keep up with Steven, she can keep up with Adele.
Martina McBride has one of the biggest voices in country music and it would take a big voice to sing with Adele. The better question may be can Adele sing as high as Martina?
Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland teamed up with Bon Jovi for 'Who Says You Can't Go Home,' and Ronnie Dunn for 'Believe.' Talk about two totally different songs. She has that bluesy rasp to her voice that would blend nicely with Adele. Just listen to her song that was never a radio release, 'What I'd Give.'
Kenny Chesney just had a #1 hit with 'You & Tequila,' the song he sang with pop singer Grace Potter. He also has a blues in his voice, which he showed in his hit 'Somewhere with You.'
Keith Urban's Australian accent may be an interesting blend with Adele's British sound. And we haven't seen his vulnerable side since 'Tonight I Wanna Cry.' It would be nice to see the two team up for a romantic, break your heart song, which Adele has mastered with her Grammy winning CD.
Ronnie Dunn would have to be my top choice to team up with Adele for a duet. He can rock it and he can sing the blues. I don't think there is a note he can't match with Adele. That would be an amazing combination.
