What makes a good song if it were not a combination of a great solo and a talented duo? Well, a dream come true, Reba McEntire and the Brooks & Dunn collaborate for a sensational masterpiece.

With McEntire’s hit “The Heart Won’t Lie”, and Brooks & Dunn’s “Believe”, these artists have teamed up, and come up with even a more beautiful and heartwarming music.

Recorded by American music artist Reba McEntire, along with the duo Brooks & Dunn, “If You See Him, If You See Her” is a song originally written by Terry McBride, Jennifer Kimball, and Tommy Lee James.

It served as the title track to each artist’s respective 1998 albums, If You See Him for Reba, and If You See Her for Brooks & Dunn. It was both released on June 2 in the same year. Concurrently promoted and distributed by both artists’ labels, MCA Nashville and Arista Nashville, McEntire, and the duo made the song to a higher level. Moreover, it is the only single to feature both Kix Brooks & Ronnie Dunn on vocals.

If You See Him

This part of the song is sung by McEntire where she wishes his man well.

If you see him
Tell him I wish him well
How am I doin’?
Well, sometimes is hard to tell

I still miss him more than ever
But please don’t say a word

If you see him

If You See Her

On the other hand, this is Brooks & Dunn’s part. Just like McEntire’s, this is intended for a woman.

If you see her
Tell her I’m doin’ fine
And if you want to
Say that I think of her from time to time

Ask her if she ever wonders
Where we both went wrong

If you see her

If You See Him, If You See Her

The song is a ballad, alternating McEntire’s vocals with those of Ronnie Dunn. Kix Brooks provides harmony vocals on the verses sung by Dunn. Both debuted the song at the Academy of Country Music awards in 1998.

The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts for the week of June 27, 1998. In addition, it held that position for two weeks, giving McEntire her twenty-ninth number one single, and Brooks & Dunn’s twelfth.

On the Brooks & Dunn: The Last Rodeo special on May 23, 2010, Lady Antebellum sang this song with Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn coming in towards the end.

Watch the original Reba and Brooks & Dunn sing the song.
