Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire release “Does He Love You” duet and music video
Two of country music’s biggest female stars, Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire, have teamed up to release their first-ever duet. The long-awaited collaboration, a remake of Reba’s 1993 chart-topper “Does He Love You,” was released October 8 on Reba’s new three-disc box set, “Revived Remixed Revisited,” alongside a music video, which premiered exclusively on Facebook.
Singer Linda Davis joined Reba in the original hit recording, released in 1993, going head to head with the star in a powerhouse vocal showcase. Dolly and Reba’s version from “Revived Remixed Revisited” is a softer, more subtle interpretation, taking the song down to its basic elements and giving the two superstars the opportunity to have a conversation.
Dolly previously opened up about the collaboration during an appearance on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live.”
“It turned out really good,” Dolly shared. “I have always wanted to sing with her and I don’t know why we never did it until now. But we really sounded good together and I think the fans are going to like it.”
Reba also shared her excitement about the duet in a recent interview with “Rolling Stone,” saying,
“Isn’t that amazing? Here we are, so far along in our careers [and] we haven’t gotten to sing together…I’ve sung for her, she’s sung for me, but we’ve never done a duet together. I was so thrilled that she said yes.”
“Does He Love You,” featuring Dolly Parton, is available now on Reba McEntire’s three-disc box set, “Revived Remixed Revisited,” and via all digital and streaming services.
