A List of Favorites


I awoke this morning and for some reason a song was in my head “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma.” I sang it to myself and then I pulled it up on YouTube and had a listen.  And of course I cried.  I have a very strong memory of lying on the bed in my parents’ red bedroom next to my dad as he played that song.  I loved it then and I love it still.  This morning I listened to that song probably 13 times repeatedly.

It began to wash over me how much I love duets.  Two beautiful voices singing together, at the same time relying on one another.  Here’s a list of my favorites.  I was going to list 10, but I could only think of nine. 

9.  Loretta Lynn & Johnny Cash—-Jackson

8. Seven Spanish Angels—Willie Nelson & Ray Charles

7.  Whiskey Lullaby—Allison Kraus & Brad Paisley

6.  Meet Me In Montana—-Marie Osmond & Dan Seals

5.  Close My Eyes Forever—-Lita Ford & Ozzy Osbourne

4.  I Got You Babe—Sonny & Cher

3.  You’re the Reason Our Kids are Ugly—Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn

2.  Picture—Kid Rock & Sheryl Crow

1.  You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma—David Frizzell & Shelly West
