McEntire, Reba - keep on loving you [2009]
Reba's neue... - und es ist wieder ein prima Album geworden. Reba McEntire ist eine großartige Künstlerin, die es problemlos versteht, sich den Gegebenheiten des modernen Nashville's anzupassen, ohne auch nur im geringsten ihre Wurzeln zu leugnen. Genau das ist ihr hier bestens gelungen. So ist "Keep on loving you" ein modernes, überwiegend schön knackiges, kraftvolles Country-/New Country-/Contemporary Country-Album geworden, das typisch Reba ist, und eindrucksvoll offenbart, dass die Diva in Nashville's Gegenwart angekommen ist. Klasse!

Reba hat zu jedem einzelnen Stück des neuen Albums ein paar Gedanken und Statements preis gegeben, die wir nachstehend im Originaltext weitergeben:

1. "Strange" (Wendell Mobley, Jason Sellers, Neil Thrasher)
"I liked the way it has a lot of different melodies to it. It has great range, but the main reason I like it is because it's so sassy. I love the attitude of it. It's totally different, but it reminds me of the attitudes of `Can't Even Get the Blues.' I seem to have success with sassy attitude songs. This song is about a woman who has been left behind from her partner or boyfriend, and she is trying to feel sad, but it's just not working, so she's going on with her life. It's a strong woman song."

2. "Just When I Thought I'd Stopped Loving You" (Mark Nesler, Rivers Rutherford)
"This is the song that Rivers Rutherford wrote with Mark Nesler. I loved the beat and the melody. It reminded me of a Rascal Flatts song in the first part of it. It's really catchy. It's a song that I'd be singing the middle of the night when I woke up, so I knew it would be a great song when it is in your subconscious like that. I would say this is the least powerful woman song, because she is like, `Oh, I can't give in and take you back one more time, I can't,' but then she does. I hate to say it's a booty call song, but it does remind me of that. I guess this is my booty call song!"

3. "I Keep On Lovin' You" (Ronnie Dunn, Terry McBride)
"We were in the studio recording with Tony Brown, and Tony had said they were just finishing up some of the Brooks & Dunn songs. He said, `You ought to listen to this one song. I just love the song. I think it is wonderful. I think it can relate to a couple who have been together for a short time or a long time, but basically a long time. We've been through the highs and lows and ups and downs, we've fought and gotten back together, but no matter what we go through, I'm going to keep on loving you. I think it's an anniversary song."

4. "I Want a Cowboy" (Katrina Elam, Wayne Kirkpatrick, Jimmie Lee Sloas)
"Katrina Elam co-wrote this song. I am a huge fan of Katrina Elam. She is one of the best singers I've ever heard. I asked Tony to ask Katrina if I could cut `I Want a Cowboy.' She came in and sang some of the harmony on it too. It's a great kick-ass song that is good attitude. And I'm a cowgirl; I've rodeoed 10 years and I'm a third-generation rodeo brat, so I thought it was just perfect."

5. "Consider Me Gone" (Steve Diamond, Marv Green)
"It's a strong woman song. I'm sure there are tons of women who get the cold shoulder when the husband comes in from work. He's had a rough day and she's had three kids at home, especially if it's summer. He doesn't want to talk, something's going on and it's confrontation time. If you are giving me the cold shoulder, if you're not wanting to talk to me, and if things aren't getting any better and if I don't turn you on, consider me gone. Here's the way the cow eats the cabbage. It's like, let's poop or get off the pot. Tell it like it is. It's a pretty cool song and it's confrontation time. That is one thing that is wrong with relationships, that there's not enough communication."

6. "But Why" (Jason Sellers, Neil Thrasher)
"I love the melody. It's one of those love songs that I usually don't record. It's also a strong woman song: `I can do this by myself, but why would I want to when I can share it with you?' It's a real sweet love song. It's a very soft song."

7. "Pink Guitar" (Ed Hill, Jamie O'Neal, Shaye Smith)
"This is just a kick-ass fun song. I can see lots of little girls going, `Yeah, I want to play guitar.' When I was growing up, guitars were for boys; that was the men's instrument, especially an electric guitar. Girls could play an acoustic guitar. I remember the girl who played on one of the awards shows with Carrie Underwood. She got out there and played her butt off. That was when I found `Pink Guitar.' I said, `She's going to love this song.' I love the attitude of it. It's still country; it's almost like `Fancy.' This girl had this dream and she went on to survive and succeed. It's real cute and I love to sing it."

8. "She's Turning 50 Today" (Liz Hengber, Tommy Lee James, Reba McEntire)
"It's a song about a woman who found out that her husband left on Saturday for a woman who is half her age. She spent the day lying in bed, but then on Monday got up, loaded up her pickup truck and began a new chapter of her life. She went on with her life and didn't look back. I wrote the first two lines of `She's Turning 50 Today' and sent it to Liz Hengber. I said, `Why don't you work on this a little bit and email me back what you've got?' Two years went by, and I said, `Liz, what about that song?' She said, `Tommy Lee James and I are going to work on it. So by the time this album came around to start recording, they sent me an MP3 of it while I was in the studio. I rewrote the second verse to make it more personal and relate to me when I left Stringtown, Oklahoma, in 1987. So in a way it's about me leaving a relationship, but it was certainly years ago, but put the two together."

9. "Eight Crazy Hours (In the Story of Love)" (Leslie Satcher, Darrell Scott) "This is a song I was on the fence about because it was so deep that I just didn't know how to take it. And so I let Autumn McEntire Sizemore, my niece, listen to it. She started crying and said, `You've got to record this song.' I let more people listen to it and they were like, `Oh my gosh!' It didn't hit me as hard as it did a lot of other people. I guess I haven't had to get away. I think my music is my release. Whenever I am menopausal or whatever, I can release things in my music when I sing. That is my therapy. It touched so many people that I recorded it. When I sang it live it choked me up so much that I couldn't get through it. This woman has a meltdown and she is just putting sheets on the bed and winds up in a bunch of dirty clothes on the floor, crying her eyes out. She checks into a cheap motel and lets it all out, crying in the bathtub. It was just as simple as picking up the kids and she's back in life again. She just needed to go away and take time for herself. Eight hours later, they're sitting around table eating chicken and laughing. It's eight crazy hours and the story of love."

10. "Nothing To Lose" (Kim Fox)
"Nothing to Lose" was on Melonie Cannon's album. When I was working with (Melonie's father) Buddy Cannon years ago, he gave it to me. I love Melonie's voice. `Nothing to Lose' was one of those songs that I said, `Man, if I could ever record that...,' so I did. I told everybody, `I want to feature the band on this,' so we let the band play two or three times. Everybody had an instrumental. It's about a woman leaving on the bus going down to Georgia. She doesn't know where she's going and doesn't know what lies ahead, but she doesn't care. It's another strong woman song."

11. "Over You" (Michael Dulaney, Steven Dale Jones, Jason Sellers)
"Whew! That is a sad song, kind of like Anne Steele. It's a beautiful melody. (My husband) Narvel said he loved this song. He would play the demo over and over. It's just one of those about `I knew the day would come when we would see each other again. You look great and got on with your life, but I'm still not over you.' It's really sad."

12. "Maggie Creek Road" (Karen Rochelle, James Slater)
"We were in the studio and I was having trouble with my resonance; I wasn't getting my soft voice at all. During lunch I saw Dr. Richard Quisling, my throat doctor in Nashville, and he opened up my sinuses or resonances or something. I came back to the studio and started singing again and Tony Brown's mouth dropped open, `My gosh, what did he do to you?' `He lasered out a little infection.' I put Dr. Quisling on my album thanks-yous. He is just a miracle worker. I had been on the fence about this song, but Tony really wanted me to record it. While I was coming back in, I said, `Let's do `Maggie Creek Road' next,' and he said, `Yes!' It's about this woman who has a daughter that is almost déjà vu for this mother. The little girl is leaving with evidently an older man on a date. This is what happened to the mother 20 years ago. She isn't going to let history repeat itself, so she follows them. They are parked down by the river and she opens the door and takes care of the situation. As the song says, `You don't want to see Mama go to war.' Mama was protecting her daughter. It's one of those swampy Louisiana songs with that feel."

13. "I'll Have What She's Having" (Jimmy Melton, Georgia Middleman)
"This is a cute song. I loved it the first time I heard it. They had horns on it and I said, `Of course we'll change it to fiddle and steel guitar.' It's real sassy. A woman is walking into a bar and she's looking for a man. She sees a woman having a good time, dancing with a man. `I'll have what she's having... and by the way, that looks hot.' We'll have fun with it onstage."

McEntire, Reba - my chains are gone [2022]
Country-Queen Reba McEntire bürgt, was auch immer sie veröffentlicht, für höchste Qualität. Und sie hat schon immer einen Hang zu Gospelmusik - das ist bekannt. So ist es wenig überraschend, dass sie mit ihrem neuen Werk "My chains are gone" mal wieder ein stark Gospel-orientiertes Countryalbum veröffentlicht. Etwas ähnliches tat sie ja schon einmal im Jahre 2017 mit der DoCD "Sing it now - Songs of faith & hope". Auf ihrem neuen Album interpriert sie nun einige Gospel-Klassiker, aber auch einige weniger bekannte Stücke und versieht sie mit ihrer typischen Reba-Countrynote. Wie sie diese Tracks vorträgt, ist einfach exzellent - stimmlich in brillanter Verfassung und umgeben von herausragenden Musikern. Zudem hat sie bei dem ein oder anderen Song auch noch ein paar großartige Gäste, wie beispielsweise Trisha Yearwood oder The Isaacs, mit am Start. Klasse! Ein vorzügliches Gospelcountry-Album!

McEntire, Reba - stronger than the truth [2019]
Traditional Country-Superstar Reba McEntire veröffentlicht mit "Stronger Than The Truth" ihr 29. Studioalbum. Es ist so etwas wie die Rückkehr zu ihren absoluten Roots. Ein klassisches Reba-Album auf höchstem Niveau. Ein amerikanischer Fan schreibt begeistert in einer Rezension: "Could it be that 40 plus years into her career, she may have just delivered her finest album to date?" Ja, so etwas scheint möglich zu sein, denn in der Tat muß man dieses Werk zu den Besten ihrer gesamten, unglaublichen Karriere zählen. Die 12 neuen Songs sind ein stilistischer Streifzug durch alles, was Reba bei ihren Fans so beliebt gemacht hat. Countrymusic pur - unvergänglich und zeitlos.

Hier noch ein Original U.S.-Review:

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.
"Stronger Than the Truth" opens with one of those skitter-across-the-floor tunes, a Western Swing number fueled by twin fiddles, dance hall piano, rockabilly guitar and scampering steel. "Swing All Night with You" features the singer out for night of two-stepping following a breakup; when she meets up a dance partner who's in the same situation, she jauntily declares: "Let's let those doggone bygones be long gone/And we'll find a new song to two-step to/If you wanna take another swing at love/Baby, I'll swing all night long with you."
On the title track, McEntire pulls at our hearts with her tale of a breakup she never saw coming; the song opens quietly with a reflection on the expectation of a modest life together: "I never dreamed of wanting more/Than a small town simple life/A little money in our pockets/You're my husband, I'm your wife." As the song builds to a climax she discovers her husband's infidelity - "Standing in the grocery line/I overheard my name and yours/And one I did not recognize" - and she describes her awakening as her vocals soar in the chorus. The lyrics in McEntire's songs play with words and carry us places we never expect: "There's not a blade sharper than a lie/There's not a low as being the last one to know/You've got a brand new start with someone new/And there's no whiskey stronger than the truth."
The breakup ballad "Tammy Wynette Kind of Pain" opens sparely with piano notes before it swells with McEntire's vocals and aching pedal steel; she confirms the depth of her pain by name-checking the titles of Wynette's songs in the chorus: "Standing by your man, that's a broken plan/So it's d-i-v-o-r-c-e." In the heart-rending "The Bar's Getting Lower," the singer's words of sadness and brokenness float over a flowing river of steel guitar: "She was hoping for pink champagne, but she'll settle for well whiskey/Saw herself in a long white gown, not downtown getting tipsy/And that one night stand walking through the door/Ain't the marrying kind, yeah, that's for sure
But she's getting older/And the bar's getting lower."
"Stronger Than the Truth" is Reba at her very best. Every song reveals her enduring power as a vocalist, her way with the songs she delivers to us, and her ability to wring every emotion from us, touching our hearts with her own honest, heartfelt emotions.
(Henry L. Carrigan Jr. / Country Standard Time)
