Let me preface this story with this.  I. FREAKING. LOVE. ADELE.  And I am still Bitter: Party of One over the fact that when tickets for her last North American tour went on sale, I was on a cruise in the middle of the Caribbean and had ZERO internet access and was unable to get seats.  Still not over it.  Won't be until she launches the 30 Tour.  I am anxiously awaiting that announcement, which I assume will come shortly.  But I am pretty pumped about this news too.

A couple of weeks ago, Vogue shared their 73 Questions with Adele.  One of those questions was about her dream duet partner.  I think, to the surprise of many, she named country music star Chris Stapleton.

Now, as someone who works in country music and is a huge fan of Chris and his voice, that didn't really come as a surprise to me.  I mean, Chris has one of the strongest and most unique voices in country much in the way that Adele has one of the most powerful and unique-sounding voices in pop.  So, honestly, this partnership makes sense to me and the idea of them singing together is making my arm air stand on end.  It's gonna sound awesome, right?  Well, guess what. That idea is now a reality!!

Adele just dropped her brand new album 30 overnight and, as Billboard News proclaims, she has "gone country!"  Well, at least for one song.

The deluxe version of that Adele's new album features her much-anticipated duet with Chris.  In fact, they have a duet version of 30's lead-off single "Easy on Me".

In case you haven't heard it, here's Adele's solo version.

Here's the "deluxe" version that features Chris Stapleton!
