Flashback to the moment Carrie Underwood and Jamie O’Neal took on a classic Reba duet YouTube screenshot

Ever since Reba McEntire and Linda Davis climbed the country music charts with their 1993 hit “Does He Love You,” it seems as though the pair’s roles have been mixed and matched time and time again.

Take for example, Reba and Kelly Clarkson, who sang the song together during an “American Idol” special in 2002. Kelly then went on to take those Davis lines and did a duet with Martina McBride.

It kind of makes us wonder if there is an unspoken bond shared between some of country music’s most powerful female vocalists where covering the classic is an absolute must. In 1995, Carrie Underwood and Jamie O’ Neal also took the emotional ballad and soared with it.

Their rendition took place during the CMT “100 Greatest Duets” concert taping in 2005. Back then, a much younger and casually dressed Carrie was still riding a high from her “American Idol” win, but that didn’t stop her from keeping up with Jamie and sounding like a true seasoned performer.

Now, it’s undeniable that Carrie has gone on to make a huge name for herself, along with collecting a stock-pile of trophies and a large catalog of hit-songs. Currently, the “Smoke Break” singer is in the midst of her Storyteller Tour, with her next stop on Feb. 20 at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Va.
