Reba and Dolly Parton’s new video for “Does He Love You” — the duet the two country icons sing on Reba’s new box set — has been viewed almost half a million times since its release on Friday (10/8).
As the song progresses, both Reba and Dolly get powerful in their singing style. Reba explains, “At the beginning when Dolly starts to sing, she has that beautiful whisper, and then when she comes on powerhouse, I’m like, ‘Omigosh!’ It just gave me goosebumps.”
Dolly adds with her trademark smile, “But we’ve known each other so long, we feel where we’re gonna go. I knew… what she was feeling when she was singing certain notes, I thought, I’m not gonna let her out sing me.”
Parton laughs then says, “So, I mean I love her singing, I thought well, I’m really, really, really gonna have to woman up on this one. But I really felt it though. It’s such a great song, to start with, such a well-written song, such a good subject, so I thought this time I get to be the Jolene, but she’s the redhead!”
