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.”

Now Available

“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.

“Celebrating legendary women in country music” – the resinating theme of “The 53rd Annual CMA Awards” did not disappoint. The opening number of the show could have very easily been mistaken for the finale as it featured one female country legend after another singing some of the genre’s most moving songs.

Opening Number

Dolly, Reba and Carrie brought the crowd to their feet with harmonies as smooth as a new hairdo, when they kicked the show off with “Those Memories.” Of course, Reba and Carrie were channeling their inner Emmylou and Linda as this song was recorded by Dolly, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris in 1987 on their first Trio album. Jennifer Nettles, Kimberly Schlapman and Karen Fairchild held the momentum with Loretta Lynn’s “You’re Lookin’ at Country” with Jennifer fittingly recognizing the first woman to win the Entertainer of the Year award sitting on the front row.

The veil lifted on a second section of the stage revealing Dolly and the Highwomen (Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris, Brandi Carlile and Amanda Shires) with Tammy Wynette’s “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad.” From then the hits just kept coming with Tanya Tucker singing her own “Delta Dawn,” Gretchen Wilson with “Redneck Woman” and Crystal Gale and her classic “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.” With her guitar, Terri Clark burst into “Better Things To Do” and Sara Evans rose up with “Born to Fly.” The closer, enter Martina McBride, with the consequential women’s empowerment anthem, “Independence Day.”

Dolly, Reba and Carrie Shine

Reba, enchanted the crowd with her wardrobe changes while performing her 1991 hit, “Fancy” which didn’t let anybody down. Carrie delivered her jazzy new single, “Drinking Alone.” And Dolly graced the stage with a spiritual number which included her recent collaborations with Zach Williams and for King & Country. She ended with a breath-taking “Have a Little Faith in Me,” her most recent collaboration (with Galantis & Mr. Probz) that landed Dolly her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales Chart.
