MCA superstar REBA McENTIRE sits down with OPRAH today (9/19) to discuss her new "Duets," album. She will also perform "Because Of You" with KELLY CLARKSON and "The Only Promise That Remains," with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.
She tells OPRAH that she was a bit nervous about the duet with TIMBERLAKE, whom she did not know prior to recording. When he agreed to appear on the project, he also asked to write the song that he would sing with McENTIRE. She said, "JUSTIN and (co-writer) MATT came over and played the song for me. Justin told me later, 'Your face was so precious; you were so uptight. You didn't know exactly what I was going to play for you.' "I said, 'It could have been "SexyBack 3" for all I know.' He played this song and I thought, 'Oh my gosh, this is beautiful.' " The show airs today at 4p (CT) on NBC.
