Reba McEntire Gives Sneak Peek at New Duet With Jennifer Nettles [Listen]
Reba McEntire is getting ready for the release of a new studio album, and she’s sharing a very special new track with fans.
The country legend will release Love Somebody on April 14. She shared a preview of a track titled “Enough” on Twitter Friday (March 20), featuring Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles. The track is an acoustic guitar-based ballad that tells the story of a woman whose man is distant and uncommitted, but she can’t quite let him go: “I fall asleep before he’s home, tomorrow I’ll wake up alone / Feeling that familiar low / My heart screams enough.”
Reba and Nettles trade verses on the song and then split the chorus between unison and harmony to great effect.
The track is a big change of pace from the album’s first single, “Going Out like That,” which features heavy guitars and a lot of attitude. McEntire worked with some of the hottest songwriters in Nashville for the new project, including Sam Hunt, Brandy Clark, Shane McAnally and Ashley Gorley. She’s releasing it via a new deal with Nash Icon, which is a joint venture between Big Mchine Label Group and Cumulus Radio that aims to return classic country stars to the commercial marketplace.
McEntire co-produced the new tracks with three different producers; Tony Brown, James Stroud and Doug Sisemore.
“We’ve been working on it a long time and we can’t wait to hear what you think about it,” she says. “As you all know, I love looking for songs to record. I’ve said that many times … We listened to thousands of songs to find just the right ones for this album.”
