Screengrab via YouTube

Duets are synonymous with country music. We all know the timeless cuts from George Jones and Tammy Wynette like "Golden Ring," Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty's "After The Fire Is Gone," or Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's "Islands in the Stream." Between this pivotal period and the early 2000s, which brought us gems like Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss' "Whiskey Lullaby" or George Strait and Alan Jackson's "Murder on Music Row," the 1990s brought us some memorable country songs.

Here are 10 of the greatest country duets from the 1990s.

"From This Moment On," Shania Twain and Bryan White

The epic love song, penned by Twain herself, also features the vocals of fellow 90s hitmaker Bryan White.

"It's Your Love," Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
