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.”

Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Businesses Raise $700,000 From Ticket Sales to Benefit the United Way of Humphreys County

Due to the recent flooding that has devastated much of Middle Tennessee, Dolly Parton and her Smoky Mountain businesses are reaching out to help, seeking to return the favor the area received after the 2016 wildfires. Dolly was moved to help after seeing the damage caused in Humphreys County, the home of her good friend, country music legend Loretta Lynn. Loretta was quick to offer her support to the Smokies in 2016, so Dolly was inspired to reciprocate the gesture. Dolly, through Dollywood and her Pigeon Forge dinner show properties—Dolly Parton’s Stampede Dinner Attraction, Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show and Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Feud—has raised $700,000, a portion of ticket sales from October 2-3, to benefit the United Way of Humphreys County, the charity selected by Loretta.

“After the Sevier County wildfires in 2016, Loretta was one of the first who reached out to offer anything she could,” Dolly said. “It meant so much to me that Loretta—and so many folks—were ready to give in any way they could. This was just one small way I could help Loretta’s people for all they did to help my people.”

Several counties were affected, but Humphreys County received the most damage. More than 20 people lost their lives due to the catastrophic flooding, caused by more than 15 inches of rain that fell in a relatively short period of time in late August. Loretta’s ranch in Hurricane Mills was severely damaged by the flooding, and ranch foreman Wayne Spears was tragically swept away in the floodwaters.

For anyone interested in donating directly to the United Way of Humphreys County, please visit unitedwayhumphreys.org for more information.

Award-winning musician José Feliciano adds Latin influence to Dolly’s country music classic, “Eagle When She Flies”

Global music icons José Feliciano and Dolly Parton released their first-ever song collaboration in a new recording of “Eagle When She Flies.” Dolly originally wrote and recorded “Eagle When She Flies” for the 1991 album of the same title, with the song reaching No. 33 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Now, Dolly has partnered with award-winning Puerto Rican musician José Feliciano to add some “new flair” to her song in a new recording, released on September 17 along with a new lyric video.

“Eagle When She Flies” releases on the heels of Feliciano’s recent 50-year anniversary celebration of his iconic holiday classic, “Feliz Navidad.” No stranger to the country music world, he has recorded many country songs in the span of his legendary career and performed with some of the genre’s most critically-acclaimed artists, including Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Glenn Campbell. Now, his collaboration with Dolly marks his latest contribution to the country music world. Feliciano shared,

“‘Eagle When She Flies’ became very personal when my producer, Rick Jarrard, brought it to me for our Nashville recording session for the ‘Behind This Guitar’ album. After hearing it the very first time, I knew exactly what Dolly was saying, knowing certain women who are precisely what the song is about and so I needed to echo that, myself. I am blown away and so honored, really, that she offered to sing it with me. You know, Dolly, herself, is a magnificent eagle.”

Miley Cyrus writes touching Dolly tribute in TIME100 featured article

TIME Magazine has named Dolly Parton among the 100 most influential people of 2021, with a foreword written by her goddaughter Miley Cyrus. Dolly is one of only two country artists, along with Kane Brown, who earned a coveted spot on the list, released on Wednesday, September 15. TIME CEO and editor in chief Edward Felsenthal said in a statement,

“[The TIME100 list] features extraordinary leaders from around the world working to build a better future, from entertainers striving to make Hollywood more inclusive to activists fighting for sustainability and human rights…They are disruptors, fixers, doers, iconoclasts, problem solvers—people who in a year of crisis have leaped into the fray.”

While Dolly has long been known for her humanitarian efforts, she made headlines during the pandemic when her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University helped fund research for the highly effective Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. And, since 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library has delivered more than 165 million books to children around the world, instilling a love of literacy.

A Tribute to an Icon

The TIME100 list also features pairings where guest contributors talk about the impact of each of the people featured on the list. Dolly’s own goddaughter, singer-songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus, penned a touching tribute to the country music legend.

“People look to Dolly for guidance, and she knows that,” Miley shared. “She wears that responsibility with the same grace and pride she rocks a two-piece Nudie suit. She recognizes how impactful her choices will be as one of the most iconic and powerful voices in country music, and she leaves no one behind…There’s a theory that you shouldn’t meet your heroes, but I wish everyone had the chance to meet Dolly Parton, because she’s even better than your sparkliest dreams. She may be my fairy godmother, but I think she’s that to everyone else too.”

Joining Dolly on this year’s list are other notable figures including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Simone Biles, Kate Winslet, Billie Eilish, World Trade Organization Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, and the writer Cathy Park Hong.
