Reba McEntire released the title track from her upcoming album, Stronger Than the Truth, which will drop on April 5.
Penned by Hannah Louise Blaylock and Autumn McEntire, who is Reba’s niece, “Stronger Than the Truth” is one of 12 tracks from the new album, Reba’s first since her 2017 Grammy-winning Christian album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope.
In addition to co-producing the project with Buddy Cannon, Reba co-penned two of the 12 tracks. Additional songwriters include Brandy Clark, Ronnie Dunn, Dallas Davidson, Hillary Lindsey and more.
“The response to Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope reinforced my love for recording songs that speak to the heart,” says Reba. “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 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.”
