Reba McEntire is gearing up to release a new album with a classic country sound. Stronger Than the Truth drops April 5 on Big Machine Records.
McEntire has always been country, even to her core, and this forthcoming album proves just that. The country legend co-produced the 12-track project with Buddy Cannon in Nashville. It comes after her Grammy Award-winning album, Sing it Now: Songs of Faith & Hope.
“The response to Sing it Now: Songs of Faith & Hope reinforced my love for recording songs that speak to the heart,” McEntire explains. “So when I started selecting songs for this album, I stuck with that same formula — go with the songs that touch my heart and hopefully when you hear me singing it, they’ll touch yours too. That honesty once again revealed itself.
“I grew up on an 8,000-acre family ranch singing at dance halls, honky-tonks rodeos with my brother and sister. Stronger Than the Truth takes me back to that kind of country music that I grew up with. I haven’t gotten to do that in a while, so I’m thrilled to pieces to release this new music.”
McEntire gave fans the first taste of the album with the title track, which was written by Hannah Louise Blaylock and Autumn McEntire. See our full review of that song here.
