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," Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash's "Jackson" 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," Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett's "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere," Toby Keith and Willie Nelson's "Beer For My Horses" or George Strait and Jackson's "Murder on Music Row," the 1990s brought us some memorable country songs.
