Adele Channels June Carter Cash in Astonishing Photo
Adele turned to social media to share a picture of herself dressed up as country icon June Carter Cash that bears such a resemblance, it'll have fans rubbing their eyes.
The pop singing superstar posted to Instagram, sharing a picture of herself decked out like the late wife of "The Man in Black," Johnny Cash. She's wearing a lacy dress with a high neck, as well as a long brunette wig, and the "Hello" singer is also holding an autoharp — Cash's instrument of choice — in the photo, which bears a startling resemblance to the country legend.
"June Carter Cash," Adele writes simply to accompany the picture, adding a heart emoji. Her Instagram followers lavished praise on the singer for her transformation.
June Carter Cash was already part of country music royalty long before she married Cash. Her parents were country legends Maybelle and Ezra Carter, and she performed with the iconic Carter Family from the age of 10 on. She died on May 15, 2003, just months before her husband died on Sept. 12.
Adele is not the only star to transform herself into June Carter Cash. Reese Witherspoon won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Carter Cash in the 2005 film Walk the Line, and Jewel also portrayed the icon in a 2013 television film titled Ring of Fire.
Adele has developed somewhat of a penchant for dressing up as her musical idols and posting the results online. She dressed up like George Michael in one photo, and made waves with county fans with another she shared in January of 2018, in which she dressed up as Dolly Parton.
"The effortless queen of song, Dolly Parton!" she captioned that picture. "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."
