Reba McEntire was recently honored by the Academy of Country Music with a well-deserved Career Achievement Award. She also will be hosting the 47th Academy of Country Music Awards. Among her many contributions to the world of country music are a long list of duets. Here are my all-time Top 5:

5) “Every Other Weekend” w/ Kenny Chesney (2008, MCA Nashville)

For some reason, only 38 of Reba’s 45 music videos are on her VEVO channel. “Every Other Weekend” isn’t one of them, (and it’s not available from Kenny Chesney either) so thanks to the fan who put 1:34 of it on YouTube.

The presentation here is easy to overlook. No bombastic vocal runs, no high-strung production… just a profoundly sad tale of divorced spouses who now realize what they lost when they split up, but keep it to themselves thinking the other has moved on. They only see each other Every Other Weekend when exchanging the kids, each ex-spouse never knowing that the other weeps for reconciliation.

Unrequited love at both ends.

Powerful in its understatement and heart-wrenching in its delivery, “Every Other Weekend” adds depth and diversity to Reba’s duet repetoire.

    Every Other Weekend should be number one IMHO. Together Reba and Kenny are super sexy stuff and the song rocks!

      It’s funny Matty whenever Cher isn’t in the sitploght for a while and shows up somewhere she is on a comeback, or in this case a “major resurrection” I guess people don’t get to Las Vegas as much these days. Lets face it if she is going to do Las Vegas exclusively, and her name is not being mention except in some critical way these sorts of comments are going to fly, they make a great headline in any case. I hope Cher does more film and has more exposure than she is getting in sin city And thanks for the clarification Gail.VA:F [1.9.15_1155]please wait…VA:F [1.9.15_1155](from 0 votes)
