Adele sent the internet a into a mini-meltdown this week when she shared a snap of herself dressed Dolly Parton. And even sweeter was her caption: “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 x.” See the photo below.

The legendary country star responded by tweeting a video to Adele in which she expressed how touched she was and even vows she’ll play dress up in the future too.
“Adele… likes me?!” Parton, 72, said in the video posted Wednesday morning. “I was knocked out. I was so honored. I was so flattered. I loved your outfit. I thought that was great. I think I had an outfit just like it back in the day. In fact, I thought that was a picture of me back in the day.”
She continued, “But I was really touched with what you said. I was really honored that you would even know me that well or like my music, so I just wanted to thank you and say you’re making me look good.”
Parton then asked Adele to share some of her supporters.
“If I can have just a fraction of your fans, that can help me buy some cheaper wigs and some more clothes, some more things,” she joked. “I’m gonna dress like you next time. I love you.”

A duet between Dolly Parton and Adele must surely be in the cards now? We hope so.
Adele is no stranger to dressing up as her idols. For her 27th birthday in May 2015, she threw on some aviators, a leather jacket and some beard scruff to become Faith-era George Michael.
