Nowadays, most contemporary country songs are taking a major cross over to other genres of music, especially pop. In fact, country-pop music is dominating chart after chart. While some non-country artists have stuck to their original music roots, others have taken country songs and made it their own. Moreover, a number of pop artists now cover and deliver their versions of some country hits. To no surprise, this is mostly the case.
While country music goes through a different kind of taste, some non-country songs also get a country vibe from country folks. This is the case of one of the biggest pop hits in history, Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” as rendered by country artist Miranda Lambert.
Miranda Lambert Takes On A Major Pop Hit
While Lambert is argued to be more of a contemporary country singer than a traditional one, it does not matter as long as she is still giving a true country vibe. She proves everyone that she is not scared of anything. As a matter of fact, she does not hold back even if she gets bashed of what she is doing. This time, however, her move to cover a huge crossover hit was applauded.
Taking on an Adele hit, “Rolling in the Deep,” is pressure, especially that Adele is a good, interpretative singer with huge and unique vocals. So, when given the chance, Lambert did not think twice and took the opportunity. And, she did not disappoint. She delivered the hit, owning it in a way as if it were hers.
While the pop singer has a different vocal texture with that of the country songstress, both versions deserve and are worthy of praise.
Lambert shared the stage with her friends and Pistol Annies bandmates, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley. They sang background vocals while Miranda rocked as the lead.
