Reba McEntire celebrated the 40th anniversary of her Grand Ole Opry debut with two shows Friday night—and two surprise guests: Dolly Parton and Carrie Underwood.
Carrie surprised the audience with an unannounced performance of three songs before Reba joined her to duet on “Does He Love You.”
“It’s always an honor to be on this stage, especially tonight,” said Carrie. “You are an inspiration to us all.”
Vince Gill, who hosted Reba’s 40th anniversary celebration, also shared some sweet sentiments from the stage.
“She’s an old, sweet, dear friend of mine. There’s not many people you can guarantee they’ve got your back. And this is one of my best friends in the world.”
