Delivering a passionate rendition of Lady Antebellum’s ‘Need You Now,’ Adele and Darius Rucker famously left the band’s original singer in tears at the CMT Awards of 2010.


One of the most-loved performances of the CMT Awards of 2010 was that of Darius Rucker and Adele teaming up to sing a moving version of Lady’s Antebellum’s famous song Need You Now.

Adele’s powerfully expressive voice perfectly complimented the deep and husky vocals of Rucker, and the duo brought a new level of emotion to the song while staying loyal to the original composition.

The captivating performance received a round of cheers and applause from the audience, and it moved Hillary Scott, the singer of Lady Antebellum, to tears. Read more about on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.


The awards night was in honor of some of the most iconic artists in the genre of country music, featuring their most popular albums and songs.

Although country music has not been Adele’s genre, her rendition depicted a deeper personal connection she held to the song.

The British songstress revealed that the song Need You Know was a definite inspiration behind one of her hit compositions, Do You Remember.

Adele shared that the Lady Antebellum song was incredibly popular and she had repeatedly heard it across radio stations.


She took a liking to the song and eventually, it encouraged her to experiment and infuse a sense of country singing into Do You Remember.

The 30-year-old singer admitted that she loved the feeling that Need You Know gave her as a listener, which she tried to recreate through her song.

Both songs narrate the story of lost love and the desire to rekindle a broken romantic relationship. Do You Remember was a part of Adele’s second album 21, after her widely successful debut album 19.

At CMT, Adele also expressed her love for country music and highlighted how it celebrated a particular approach to life.

While new fads continue to catch on and die in the world of music, Adele explained that she loved country music as a genre because it was driven by the need to set new trends.
