Reba McEntire - Duets

MCA Nashville
Bottom Line:

Reba McEntire has been a leading lady in the country music world for three decades. She has won every award imaginable for her music, videos and even her charity. Reba has tackled everything from Country Music to Broadway, all the way to having a hit T.V. show. Now, with the help of eleven close friends, she has released her latest project simply titled Duets. When you get an album that Reba has created the outcome is undeniable.

When you ask country music fans who their favorite female country singer is, you are likely to hear Reba's name mentioned. With over thirty five No. 1 hits, this talented star shows no sign of slowing down. By teaming up with Vince Gill, Ronnie Dunn, Kelly Clarkson, Faith Hill, Don Henley, Carol King, Kenny Chesney and more you are bound to get a classic result.

There are eleven songs total and Reba performed them all with a different duet partner. The magic that was created on the album is undeniably the best in her career. Everyone that contributed are legends in the making and are at the top of their game. One thing that is amazing, with all the styles that were added, Reba was able to stick to her country roots. You can tell that Reba chooses her own duet partners and see the close relationship she has with them. The admiration they have for her truly shines throughout this project and has the qualities to be one of her best records ever. It is obvious from the start that Reba devoted her heart, soul and mind into making it happen.

The first song on the album has LeAnn Rimes lending her voice on "When You Love Someone Like That." Blending these two icons together was a perfect idea and led to an undeniable outcome of perfection. Reba's strong country voice with LeAnn's young, soulful sound created a new sound like no other.

Ronnie Dunn actually broke away from his own duet partner to team once again with Reba on another great tune titled "Does The Wind Still Blow In Oklahoma." Their voices created a hit in 1998, and nine years later they possibly have another one. "Because Of You" was already a huge hit for its original singer and now duet partner Kelly Clarkson. Since June, regardless of what radio station or music channel you were tuned into, chances were you would be able to hear it. As of now anything Reba touches turns to gold, but with this hit alone she has a great shot at platinum.

Another artist that jumped on board for this project is legendary singer Trisha Yearwood. With a solid, crystal clear voice, Trisha has a long track record of her own that would make anyone want her as a duet partner. Once these two superstars were in the studio, an earthquake couldn't have stopped them. They both sang their hearts out on "She Can't Save Him." This song will give you chills as you hear the raw emotion they both let out. Teaming up with Kenny Chesney on "Every Other Weekend" sounded great. This song will hit home to a lot of folks who have ever dealt with divorce or separation. Reba teamed up with Faith Hill on a personal favorite called "Sleeping With The Telephone." This is describes how a soldier's wife feels when her husband is gone.

Reba McEntire has proven she can stand the test of time, and with some help from close friends she sounds better than ever.
