Reba returns to host ACMs, announces CD

Monday, February 11, 2019 – Reba McEntire will return to host the Academy of Country Music awards in April.

The ACMs will be held at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 7. This marks the 16th time McEntire will host.

She will appear on CBS This Morning on Feb. 20 to reveal the nominees for the 54th ACMs.

McEntire also will release a new CD, "Stronger Than The Truth," on April 5 on Big Machine Records. She co-produced the 12-track project with Buddy Cannon in Nashville.

This is McEntire's first disc since "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," she said. "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."

1. Swing All Night Long With You - Written by Sidney Cox, Jon Randall
2. Stronger Than The Truth - Written by Hannah Louise Blaylock, Autumn McEntire
3. Storm In A Shot Glass - Written by Mary Browder, Will Robinson, Leslie Satcher

CD reviews for Reba McEntire

CD review - Stronger Than the Truth The beauty of Reba McEntire's albums flows from her way with a phrase, knowing when to modulate to carry us deeper into sadness or joy and when to pull back when she wants us to listen quietly to the lessons of a tear falling. Her songs can also urge us to scamper across the dance floor to twin fiddles, celebrating the exhilarating freedom of the moment or the satisfaction of breakup from a messy relationship. This album follows the end of McEntire's marriage to her manager. ...
CD review - 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 ...

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, " ...
