Listen to Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton's First-Ever Duet
The song is featured on McEntire's 'Revised Remixed Revisited'
Published Oct 08, 2021In a serious case of "how has this not already happened," you can finally listen to Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton's first-ever(!) duet, a re-recording of McEntire's 1993 single "Does He Love You," originally a duet with Linda Davis. The song features on Reba's Revised Remixed Revisited, out today on MCA Nashville.
In an interview with Billboard, McEntire discussed the long-time-coming duet, saying: "I'm shell shocked. How have we not done one? Every time I'd hear Dolly doing a duet with somebody else, I would get a little sad or a little jealous, like, 'I want to do a duet with Dolly.' Everything happens for a reason and timing is everything. So it worked out perfectly."
In the same interview, McEntire also talked about how she and Parton approached the song's subject matter differently this time around, explaining:
The way that Dolly and I approached it, it's like confrontation on Valium. It's kind of like, "I know you. You know me. We're adults." Whereas when I did it with Linda, that was mid-'90s, and it was like catfight city. Now it's like, "I don't like him. Do you like him? You can have him." So it was totally different. It was confrontation, but not hatred.
A video for the track — featuring both McEntire and Parton — premieres tomorrow, October 9.
