Reba McEntire is shipping a new single, “Freedom,” to country radio.
The tune, which was co-penned by Jay Brunswick, Tommy Cecil, Jaida Dreyer and John Pierce, is featured on Reba’s upcoming 33rd studio album, Stronger Than the Truth, which drops on April 5.
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.”
