The video will be premiering on CMT.com beginning today and the single of the song will be available at all digital retailers August 2. "I've recently become a big fan of Adele's music. I first bought her album 21 a few months ago," says Hull. "She's an amazing singer and songwriter. I really loved how simple her version was of 'Someone Like You' was and thought it would translate well to cover acoustically with a full band."

It was directed by award winning director David McClister (Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Leann Rimes) and was a CMT.com top 5 video.
