Covered a Chris Stapleton song before
Adele is a huge fan of Chris Stapleton. She previously recorded her version of “If It Hadn’t Been Love,” which was a bonus track for her 21 album back in 2011. Stapleton co-wrote the song with Mike Henderson. The song was originally recorded by Stapleton’s former bluegrass band, The SteelDrivers, in 2008.
There’s a story behind this song. When Adele was touring years ago, her driver played the song and she immediately fell in love with it. During his interview with host Howard Stern, Stapleton shared his thoughts on Adele’s recording.
“This was before Adele was Adele. She had [released] 19, and she’d gotten New Artist at the Grammys or something, but it wasn’t like she was Adele,” Chris Stapleton said. “So I remember [Irwin] sent me an email, and he’s like, ‘Hey, Adele is doing this song on YouTube. You should really try to get your publishing company to push her to put it on a record or something.’ And I was like, ‘That’s great, Ken. Who’s Adele?’ That was literally my response.”
Stapleton reciprocated the love. He said that he loves her as “a singer and an artist.” Check out The SteelDriver’s and Adele’s version of “If It Hadn’t Been For Love” in the videos below.
