Reba unveils "Going Out Like That" video
Friday, March 13, 2015
– Reba McEntire offered a look at the new music video for "Going Out Like That"
on the Today Show this morning.
McEntire said she would return to the show next month - her first in 10 years - to perform the lead single and chat about her forthcoming album "Love Somebody," out April 14 on Nash Icon Records.
Shot in Los Angeles, director TK McKamy captures McEntire "narrating" through her performance as separate clips of a heartbroken young woman reclaiming her zeal for life. As the lyrics and the beat-laden anthem encourage a night out, images in the video showcase resilience and empowerment as the scenes progresses.

My Kind of Christmas (expanded version)
Reba McEntire's "My Kind of Christmas," is essentially the same album, with the same title, she released a while back through Cracker Barrel. The project is mostly comprised of the country Wonder Woman's strong singing voice, backed by acoustic piano. The new wrinkle in this expanded edition, though, is a bevy of guest vocalists. These guest spots are so good, it's worth the extra bucks to get the full package.
Reba is joined by the dynamic husband and wife team, Vince »»»
Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope
So, you say you don't have enough Reba McEntire spiritual music in your collection, eh? With "Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope," you can fill that catalogue hole right quick. At two discs full, this ambitious set will scratch that itch, assuming you have such an itch in need of scratching.
This double album is broken down into two distinct sets. The first 10 songs are traditional ones. You almost cannot have a country gospel CD without "I'll Fly Away, " therefore, »»»
My Kind of Christmas
Upon initial listens, Reba's new Christmas album comes off a little overwhelming. Upon closer inspection, though, it's revealed to be much better. This is because the album is so darn simple. These songs feature only Reba (listed in the credits as the 'girl singer') and a piano accompaniment. Such stripped-down arrangements offer a stark contrast to many of Reba's usual ornately produced non-holiday albums.
First and foremost, these basic recordings highlight »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile warms hearts with empathetic thoughts
Brandi Carlile, dressed festively with a Santa hat, began her mid-week concert set with Joni Mitchell's "River" and closed with the carol "O Holy Night." In between, she sang about an equal measure of old and new songs. And on this first night of a short acoustic tour, Carlile was both in fine spirits and voice.... »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures
After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set.
As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»

From A Room: Volume 2
There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards. »»»
Down Home Sessions EP
Upon first glance at the track list of Cole Swindell's fourth installment of the "Down Home Sessions" series, one may get the impression that it is a covers EP. It features several chart toppers from other artists, including Luke Bryan's "Roller Coaster" and Thomas Rhett's "Get Me Some Of That." »»»

Blake Shelton's 11th studio album finds The Voice advisor in a contented, one might even say homey, frame of mind. The opening track and first single "I'll Name the Dogs" sets the tone. It's a rollicking ode to domesticity that manages to make household chore distribution ("You find the spot and I'll find the money / You be the pretty and I'll be the funny") both romantic and amusing. »»»
