It's remarkable that over the years, Nashville icons Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire had never collaborated. Back in July, Parton shared in an interview on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that she and McEntire had cut a new duet of the 1993 hit "Does He Love You," which McEntire originally recorded with Linda Davis. The song earned a No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts as well as a Grammy Award and CMA Award. Centered around a love triangle, the song was first released as a single from McEntire's album Greatest Hits Volume Two.

Later in the summer, McEntire shared the tracklist for triple album Revived Remixed Revisited, and it included the Parton team-up.

The album set's Oct. 8 release brought us not just a first-time duet but also a music video.

"It turned out really good. I've always wanted to sing with her," Parton explained to Cohen, admitting she's not really sure why she waited so long to work with McEntire.

"We really sounded good together," Parton added. "I think the fans are gonna like it."

Both performers have at least one thing in common beyond their gifts as singers and songwriters. In addition to continuing to make music in her home state of Tennessee, Parton has produced and starred in numerous films and TV shows over the years. Similarly, McEntire has appeared in various theater productions and even starred in her own sitcoms.

"Does He Love You" Lyrics

I've known about you for a while now
When he leaves me he wears a smile now
As soon as he's away from me
In your arms is where he wants to be

But you're the one he rushes home to
You're the one he gave his name to
I never see his face in the early morning light
You have his mornings, his daytimes
And sometimes I have his nights

But does he love you (does he love you)
Like he loves me (like he loves me)
Does he think of you (does he think of you)
When he's holding me
And does he whisper (does he whisper) of his fantasies
Does he love you (does he love you) like he's been lovin' me

But when he's with me, he says he needs me
And that he wants me, that he believes in me

And when I'm in his arms, oh he swears there's no one else
Is he deceiving me, or am I deceiving myself?

But does he love you (does he love you)
Like he loves me (like he loves me)
Does he think of you (does he think of you)
When he's holding me
And does he whisper (does he whisper) of his fantasies
Does he love you (does he love you) like he's been lovin' me

Oh shouldn't I lose my temper
Oh and shouldn't I be ashamed
Cause I have everything to lose
And I, I have nothing to gain

But does he love you (does he love you)
Like he loves me (like he loves me)
Does he think of you (does he think of you)
When he's holding me
And does he whisper (does he whisper) of his fantasies
Does he love you (does he love you) like he's been lovin' me
