Reba McEntire’s Top 5 Duets

3) TIE – “Cowboys Don’t Cry” w/Brooks & Dunn (2009, Arista Nashville)

This one’ll leave you with a lump in your throat.

Our two superstars, now having logged a combined 50+ years of hit-making, come together again to show all the young ‘uns how it’s done.

Although “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” was originally just Brooks & Dunn by themselves, Ronnie plainly admitted to the website Country Standard Time that Reba was the song’s inspiration.

“I had just spent time writing the song on Reba’s Duets record, “Does the Wind Still Blow in Oklahoma,” and when he sat down with “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” co-writer Terry McBride, Dunn said, “I was thinking of Reba when I wrote it and how she grew up.”

Reba’s father and grandfather were both champion steer ropers.

So the song exists as both Kix & Ronnie by themselves, and as a duet with Reba. It also stands as Brooks & Dunn’s 41st — and final — trip to the Top Ten.

    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)
