"Does He Love You" is a song written by Sandy Knox and Billy Stritch, and recorded as a duet by American country music artists Reba McEntire and Linda Davis. It was released in August 1993 as the first single from Reba's album Greatest Hits Volume Two. It is one of country music's several songs about a love triangle.

The Reba McEntire/Linda Davis version of this song was one of the most-awarded songs of McEntire's career. It was her 18th and Davis's only number 1 hit.

The single went on to win the Grammy award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration,[1] a Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the Year, and a TNN/Music City News award for Best Vocal Collaboration.


The song features a vocal battle between two female narrators who are in love with the same man. Both women know that the man is being unfaithful to them and are wondering who he truly loves.
