Man, this concert looks awesome.

Reba recently wrapped up her Reba: Live In Concert tour earlier this year and while there were no shortage of great openers, like Terri Clark, there was a run of shows where none other than ’90s legend Jo Dee Messina took the stage first.

Jo Dee is seeing a career revival of sorts thanks to the Cole Swindell pop country hit “She Had Me At Heads Carolina,” performing at the CMA’s for the first time in 20 years and getting some higher listings as festival season rolls around.

During one of their shows in Raleigh, the two hopped on stage at the same time and decided to break out a Linda Ronstadt classic.

“When Will I Be Loved” was originally written and recorded by the Everly Brothers in 1960, and while it did go top 10 at the time, it wasn’t until Linda Ronstadt covered the song in 1975 that it became a true hit, peaking at number two.

Well, while I’d tune in to hear Reba and Jo Dee sing just about anything together, the fact it was this song they chose makes it just that much better.

Wouldn’t mind an old school collaborative album from these two, just saying…
