After climbing to the top of the country charts with “Turn on the Radio,” Reba is now hitting the airwaves with her latest single, “If I Were A Boy.” The song, which was originally recorded by Beyoncé, was one of the songs she performed for CMT‟s music series Unplugged.
The tune, which was suggested by her manager-husband Narvel Blackstock and record label president Scott Borchetta, fit her so perfectly, she decided to record it for her new album, All The Women I Am.
“The concept of that show was you do five songs of yours, and then do a song, a cover, out of a different format. And so I was thinking, What? A Lady Gaga song or something? And Narvel and Scott both said, Noooo. If I Were A Boy. So, I recorded it and we taped it, and then as soon as it was finished, everybody was like, Omigosh! You’ve got to record that song.‟
Reba’s “If I Were A Boy” impacts Country Radio on January 24th.
