The 2018 Kennedy Center Honors was rocked by Brooks & Dunn take on "Why Haven't I Heard From You"! Check out the performance here!

While being celebrated at the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors event, country music icon Reba McEntire was treated to a fun version of “Why Haven’t I Heard From You” by her longtime friends Brooks & Dunn.

Watch Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks perform below!

Judging from Reba’s reaction, she loved their rendition and even blew the pair a kiss. “Why Haven’t I Heard from You” was written Sandy Knox and T. W. Hale. The song was released in 1994 as the first single from McEntire’s Read My Mind album. Check out the official music video!

“Why Haven’t I Heard from You” Lyrics 

Well back in 1876 an ol’ boy named Bell
Invented a contraption that we know so well
By the 1950’s they were in everybody’s home
There’s a crazy little thing they call the telephone
Now there’s one on every corner, in the back of every bar
You can get one in your briefcase, on a plane or in your car
So tell me why, haven’t I, heard from you
Tell me why, haven’t I heard from you
I said now darlin’, honey, what is your excuse
Why haven’t I heard from you
There’s no problem gettin’ to me
Baby you can dial direct
I got call forwarding, call waiting
You can even call collect
When the service man he told me that my phone was workin’ fine
And I’ve come to the conclusion the trouble isn’t with my line
I’m sure the operator will be glad to put you through
So dial zero for assistance if this all confuses you
So tell me why, haven’t I, heard from you
Tell me why, haven’t I heard from you
I said now darlin’, honey, what is your excuse
Why haven’t I heard from you
There better been a flood, a landslide of mud
A fire that burns up the wires
And thunder so loud with a black funnel cloud
A natural disaster I know nothin’ about
Tell me why, haven’t I, heard from you
Tell me why, haven’t I heard from you
I said now darlin’, honey, what is your excuse
Why haven’t I heard from you
Tell me why, haven’t I, heard from you
Tell me why, haven’t I heard from you
I said now darlin’, honey, what is your excuse
Why haven’t I heard from you
