Last Wednesday, the Queen of Country herself, Reba McEntire, took to Twitter to announce a special announcement on the way. In a video posted on social media, she demurely promised a little surprise.
Today, she revealed the big news to America’s Morning Show. The famous redhead will be the first artist signed to Nash Icon Music, a collaboration between Big Machine Label Group and Cumulus Media. While speaking to the show, Reba announced that she’s already recorded 11 songs for her new project and is currently looking for three additional tracks to complete the project.
Speaking to Blair Garner, Terri Clark and Chuck Wicks, Reba addressed the current female issue in country music, admitting her hesitance to complete a new record. “It’s been kind of a weird time in country music for females, I would say, and it’s in a trend now that I’m hoping is going to be more female friendly, for personal reasons.”
Reba actually signed her contract live on air, as Big Machine’s Scott Borchetta admitted he’s been trying to get her back in the studio for years, and that Nash Icons was the perfect way to do so.
Congrats Reba, we can’t wait for new music! I’m ready to “Turn On the Radio” and hear some “Fancy” new tunes!
In the meantime, Reba has been keeping busy. She recently invited Little Big Town to become members of the Grand Ole Opry and will join Kelly Clarkson and friends for her “Miracle on Broadway” benefit concert.
Are you excited for new music from Reba?
While you wait, here’s her latest release “Pray for Peace.”
