With Adele's 25 officially the biggest album of 2015 — and the first album ever to sell more than three million copies in one week — it's worth pointing out that country artists have been hip to the soulful star for years now and finding ways to pay tribute. More often than not, that means interpreting the U.K. chanteuse's songs live onstage. Or in the case of Little Big Town and David Nail, in special videos or even in the studio.

The majority of country stars gravitate toward "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You," two of the key tracks on Adele's wildly popular 21 album, while others choose "Set Fire to the Rain" or new single "Hello." Here are 10 of our favorite country versions of Adele songs, from the grace and poise of Danielle Bradbery's "Set Fire to the Rain" to the loose goofiness of Luke Bryan's crowd-assisted "Someone Like You."
