Lady Antebellum singers Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley took the stage 8 years ago for a rendition of the hit duet If You See Him/If You See Her.

According to Country Rebel, Hillary Scott and bandmate Charles Kelley sang a beautiful duet of If You See Him, If You See Her originally recorded by Brooks & Dunn with McEntire. They were joined by some special guest.

Scott told that her parents were in McEntire’s band during the four years that McEntire and Brooks & Dunn toured together. “So if you saw a little girl sitting on a road case by the side of the stage, that was me,” she said. 

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

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), both released on June 2 of that year.

The song was concurrently promoted and distributed by both artists' labels: MCA Nashville and Arista Nashville, then the respective labels for McEntire and Brooks & Dunn. It is the only single to feature both Kix Brooks & Ronnie Dunn on vocals.

The hard-working duo became the subject of an outstanding all-star tribute concert in Las Vegas on April 19, 2010, with effusive praise doled out for their music as well as their wicked sense of humor.

Brooks & Dunn finally got to see a Brooks & Dunn concert even if it was performed almost entirely by other performers. 

Presented by the Academy of Country Music, the special aired on CBS a month after the concert. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
