Nothing tops the original, but these come pretty close.
  1. Adele, "I Can't Make You Love Me" (originally sung by Bonnie Raitt)
    F80b5c72 1e4d 444e 91f0 a63c9e32b4ca
    The song is already perfect but when you add Adele's vocals to it, it sends it into a galaxy all its own.
  2. Kacey Musgraves, "Mama's Broken Heart" (originally sung by Miranda Lambert)
    B8f27ab4 fc65 4937 9ad9 f3b54c3b9ca6
    I don't know if this falls under the category of a cover since she's one of the co-writer's, but it is AMAZING.
  3. Adele, "Make You Feel My Love" (originally sung by Bob Dylan)
    4237fdc1 7f98 4bd0 a6bf eccbda674ebf
    Ugh, this makes me fall in love every time I hear it.
  4. Stevie Nicks, "I Need to Know" (originally sung by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)
    7a6b54eb 1742 4088 8706 f7468e478025
    Stevie's been doing this cover off and on in her live shows since the 80s and it's still amazing. (This clip actually has Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in it, which just makes it even cooler.)
  5. Adele and Darius Rucker, "Need You Now" (originally sung by Lady Antebellum)
    713a0097 4562 45c2 976f 19bf0d915f51
    I'm a Carolina girl so I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Hootie. As for Adele, I would listen to her sing my AP History notes from high school.
  6. Martina McBride & Kelly Clarkson, "Does He Love You" (originally sung by Reba McEntire and Linda Davis)
    22c4eeec 605c 4382 94e2 fac52f90776a
    Two powerhouse vocalists shooting dirty looks at each other while singing about the man they share? Yes, please!
  7. Little Big Town, "Born This Way" (originally sung by Lady GaGa)
    071b458c 5b35 4861 aabf 70e6104b592e
    Who would have thought that putting a bluegrass twist on a Lady GaGa song could sound so fabulous? Not me. (Honestly, though, all of their videos from their Scattered, Smothered, and Covered series are great.)
  8. Martina McBride, "We've Got Tonight" (originally sung by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band)
    Ca5328f7 d681 4d5b 8123 5e2805692058
    The longing she infuses into this song kills me.
  9. Stevie Nicks, "Crash Into Me" (originally sung by The Dave Matthews Band)
    718106c3 f2cd 47da 948b 9576325887d8
    Show of hands of people who thought they'd ever see Stevie Nicks and The Dave Matthews Band in the same sentence. But honestly, she takes this song and infuses it with her own brand of mystical, dreamy magic.
  10. The Band Perry, "Gentle On My Mind" (originally sung by Glen Campbell)
    20bf5a8b 57ff 4c8e a9b1 3a3d2d7cf6a0
    It's a cover that would make the Wichita Lineman proud.
  11. Darius Rucker, "Wagon Wheel" (originally sung by Old Crowe Medicine Show)
    Bd365335 32e2 4de3 b536 2722627ec1aa
    This song is home for me, even more so when it's being sung by Darius.
