The third and final single from Reba McEntire’s 2007 album Reba: Duets features country heartthrob Kenny Chesney. The two alternate verses taking the roles of a divorced couple who share custody of their two children and drop them off “every other weekend”. The song details how the parents secretly desire to be together again–but they won’t tell the other how they feel, fearing they won’t feel same way.
“Evey Other Weekend”‘s video features Joanna García and Steve Howey from McEntire’s sitcom Reba which ran from 2001 to 2007. Reba appears in the video but her duet partner, Kenny, doesn’t.
As a viewer of the sitcom, I was stunned to see that when the video came on TV’s Van and Cheyenne was a divorced couple. How could Reba‘s cutest couple be divorced with all they’ve been through since the shows premiere?
