Ryan Adams 'Wasted Years' (Iron Maiden cover)
It's no secret that alt-country songwriting hero Ryan Adams has a thing for metal, as he's once again proved with a cover of Iron Maiden's "Wasted Years."

As TwentyFourBit points out, Adams paid a visit to BBC Radio 2 today (August 30), unloading the all-acoustic and rather awesome cover.

You can check out this countrified version of "Wasted Years" below. Of course, you can also gear up for Adams's upcoming Ashes & Fire, due out October 11 via PAX-AM/Capitol Records.
