Pop powerhouse Kelly collaborated on Reba’s 2007 release Reba: Duets, a record featuring Reba singing duets with a handful of megastars including Justin Timberlake, Kenny Chesney, Vince Gill, Ronnie Dunn, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts, Trisha Yearwood, Don Henley, and Carole King – to name just a few.
The album was recorded in Nashville and in addition to being Reba’s 20th platinum record, it debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and the Billboard Top 200 Albums charts. Oh yeah, did we also mention Reba was named Woman of the Year that same year?
About.com‘s Scott Sexton concluded of the album:
“Reba McEntire has proven she can stand the test of time, and with some help from close friends she sounds better than ever.”
Rick Bell , Country Standard Time gave praise, saying,
“Give credit to McEntire for corralling the egos – including her own – and producing an album with depth, passion and a bunch of great voices.”
The first single off Duets was “Because of You”, which had already been hugely successful for Kelly’s solo pop music career. The duo breathe new life into the song, reviving the melody with sweet yet powerful vocals, and Reba’s natural country flair.
Shot and directed by Glenn Sweitzer, a series of short behind-the-scenes clips of each guest performer is available for viewing on YouTube under FreshFilms.
