Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton teaming up for a new song is a moment that was a long time coming. While the two friends have shined in the male-dominated country industry for years, this is the first time they joined their powers together. And McEntire knows how special it is.
McEntire and Parton joined forces on one of McEntire’s most famous hits, “Does He Love You.” It’s one of the songs featured on McEntire’s Revived Remixed Revisited, a special project that puts a new spin on her biggest hits. Parton replaced Linda Davis on the hit 1993 song, injecting star-power into an already monumental song.
“It was a milestone moment for me, absolutely without a doubt,” said McEntire in a recent interview. “And then just hanging out with your buddy. I mean, timing is everything and everything happens for a reason, but we enjoyed it tremendously.”
McEntire, 66, and Parton, 75, started their careers in country music a decade apart. Parton started gaining fame in the 1960s while McEntire started to make her mark in the 1970s. They’ve both thrived as the queens of country music ever since then.
The duo filmed a music video for the song together. The somber video sees the two women, both involved with the same man in the song, share a drink at a bar. Seeing them belting the emotional song together makes for quite the video!
The video ends with a candid moment between them as Parton says she “loves” the song and loves singing it with Reba.
“It turned out really good. I’ve always wanted to sing with her, and don’t know why we didn’t till now,” Parton said in an interview earlier this year. “We really sounded good together. I think the fans are gonna like it.”
It’s about time these two joined forces, and we’re all better for it!
