Note: about 7 months ago I was “cleaning up” my blog and took out a lot of old posts that I no longer thought should be left on the blog. But since then I have had a number of people ask me what happened to this or that Musical Tribute post, and I realized that those Musical Tribute posts that I had left up continue to get page hits week after week. Apparently some people listen to them and like to come back to them. And, of course, we have a lot of new readers on OS since they were originally posted. So, little by little, I am reconstructing and editing those posts that I had taken down, and re-posting them.
The response to the last duet Tribute Post was strong. So I dug out a second series of country duets that I had posted earlier but took down early this year. Some of these songs include crossover singers and were well received on both the country and pop circuits. These are for those who like this kind of music, and for me, of course. ;-)
Some of these duets are over 40 years old. Some are less than ten years old. Some combinations of singers are predictable and others not so much. We have here mostly traditional country duets. But one duet is with an opera singer. A couple are with pop/crossover artists who are not easily classified. Out of the hundreds of country duets these may not include your favorites. If so, leave a note below and I will try to find them and add them to the post.
The songs are in no particular order. Well, except for the last one, which says more about me than about anything else.
I have enjoyed country duets for years and hope you will enjoy these as well.
