Country icons Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn ring in the 25th anniversary of their classic hit “If You See Him, If You See Her” with a brand-new acoustic version of the track, available to stream now HERE.

Produced by Grammy Award-winner Dave Cobb, the new version of the chart-topping song offers listeners a stripped-down take on the 1998 original single.

The original version of “If You See Him, If You See Her” acted as the lead single not only on Reba’s record If You See Him, but also on Brooks & Dunn’s If You See Her. The track was an instant hit, skyrocketing to the top of the country charts and securing the number one slot for back-to-back weeks. 

The melancholy duet was born after the two acts’ highly successful multi-year tour and marks just one of many collaborations between McEntire and Brooks & Dunn over the years, including a Las Vegas residency.

The album will be accompanied by Reba’s highly-anticipated, unreleased book, Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots.

Reba McEntire recently revealed more about her book in an appearance on TalkShopLive earlier this month.

In the about section of TalkShopLive, McEntire shared the following description of the book:

“To me there’s nothing better than sitting out on the porch of Southeastern Oklahoma looking out at the deep red dirt that goes on for miles. A beautiful sunset, and then me, just sipping on a glass of iced tea (or whiskey) with loved ones, and seeing who can get who to crack up first. I don’t know what heaven’s going to look like, but if I get any say in the matter, I’d tell the Big Boy Upstairs that’s all I want. Just me, people I love, and those acres of red dirt. Throw in some beans and cornbread, and I’m all set.

All in all, I think the secret to a nice life isn’t that complicated. Most of us probably already know it in our bones, and that’s what I want to get back to. Simple fun, hard work, good food, and laughing with those you love.

That’s what I’m sharing on these pages—some simple, not-that-fancy truths I live by, and a bunch of good stories, photos, and recipes that go along with them. So if you’re looking to slow down, get back to basics, and have a heckuva lot of fun, then my friend, I think we’re going to have a good time together. So come on in, kick off your boots (or leave them on, I don’t care), and learn how to bring a little bit of my ranch-inspired life into your own.”

Published by Harper Celebrate, a gift imprint of publisher Harper Collins, the 288-page book will be available as a hardcover, digital book and audiobook at Barnes & Nobles, Target, and many other book retailers.

Recently Wrapped Her Tour

Additionally, Reba McEntire recently wrapped up her time on the road for her 14-city spring leg of her tour that featured special guests Terri Clark and The Isaacs. The trek kicked off on March 9 and ended with a bang on April 15 as Reba graced the stage for her first-ever headlining performance at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Fans can catch the star this summer in Nashville for the 50th anniversary of CMA Fest.
