Brooks & Dunn Honor Reba with “Why Haven’t I Heard from You”

Reba McEntire did not only receive honors from the Kennedy Center Honors event last December 2 but also from longtime friends Brooks & Dunn with a fun rendition of her 1994 hit “Why Haven’t I Heard from You.” The multi-awarded country singers wanted the Queen of Country to be left in awe after their hard-rocking’ delivery of one of her hits. And they succeeded!

Brooks & Dunn’s cover of “Why Haven’t I Heard from You” became one of the highlights of the evening’s program. McEntire was all smiles as she sat back and watched the pair take turns in leading the vocals while bouncing with ease through the song. She was, indeed, pleased with the duo’s performance judging from her reaction after the presentation. The “Back to God” singer blew them a kiss as a sign of appreciation and approval. The country veteran singers’ number concluded the tribute performances honoring the country icon. With the rest of the performers joining Brooks & Dunn onstage for the finale, the program ended on a high note.

The CBS aired the two-hour special on December 26.

“Why Haven’t I Heard from You”

This song was penned by Sandy Know and T. W. Hale. It was released as the first single on McEntire’s album Read My Mind.  The single became a Top 5 hit both in the US and Canada. It also topped the US Bubbling Under 100 Singles chart. Its music video shows Reba and her boyfriend in a restaurant who agreed on going away together, which did not happen. Playing in the background was a mariachi band. Jon Small directed the music video which premiered in mid-1994.

Their Collaborations

McEntire and Brooks & Dunn have been friends and collaborators for a long period of time. They collaborated in 1998 for the song “If You See Him, If You See Her” which was included on McEntire’s 24th studio album, If You See Him. Also, in the past three years, they have worked together for a joint project. Their collaboration took place in Las Vegas and named it Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas. Moreover, the three country icons planned on returning for another six-show run mid this year.
