British songbird Adele really, really loves country music legend Dolly Parton! Check out Adele channeling her best Dolly impression here!

Vocal powerhouse Adele swapped her signature look for a voluminous blonde wig and ‘revealing’ blush-colored pantsuit in honor of country music’s own Dolly Parton.

“The effortless queen of song, Dolly Parton! We love you! We wish We could possess an ounce of your ability. You were the hero of our night! A hero of my life. I’ll always love you,” Adele captioned the eye-catching photo below!

Though we have no clue why Adele is dressed like the Tennessee native, we dig it. Parton also approved and commented on Adele’s tribute with a simple, “I will always love you.”

That’s some pretty amazing love between the two female superstars— musical collaboration please!

Since we can’t resist Dolly, enjoy watching her perform “I Will Always Love You” on the The Porter Wagoner Show in the mid-1970’s below!

“I Will Always Love You” Lyrics

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go, but I know
I’ll think of you each step of the way
And I will always love you
I will always love you
Bitter-sweet memories
That’s all I am taking with me
Good-bye, please don’t cry
We both know that I’m not
What you need
I will always love you
I will always love you

I hope life, treats you kind
And I hope that you have all
That you ever dreamed of
And I wish you joy
And happiness
But above all of this
I wish you love
And I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

Dolly Parton wrote and recorded “I Will Always Love You” in 1973 and it was released in 1974 as a single. The song was written as a farewell to mentor of seven years, Porter Wagoner, following Parton’s decision to pursue a solo career. Upon its release, the track reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart twice— in June 1974 and then in October 1982, with her re-recording on the soundtrack of the movie version of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

As fans well know, Whitney Houston recorded her version of the song for the 1992 film The Bodyguard. Her version spent 14 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart making it one of the best-selling singles of all time.
