A cowgirl to the core, REBA MCENTIRE has never been bashful about her Country roots. The iconic entertainer proves it with STRONGER THAN THE TRUTH, her forthcoming studio album, out April 5 on Big Machine Records. Reba co-produced the 12-track project with Buddy Cannon in Nashville, which follows her dual chart-topping, GRAMMY® and GMA Dove Awards-winning 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. 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,” expressed Reba. “I grew up on an 8,000-acre family ranch singing at dance halls, honky-tonks and 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.”
Fans can now purchase exclusive album bundles at Reba.com such as the 100-Proof Package (autographed vinyl, shot glass, bar tool set and t-shirt).
