“Stone-cold country”: Reba’s headed back to her roots for her next record

Since Reba McEntire released her most recent studio album, Love Somebody, in 2015, she recorded both a Grammy-winning gospel disc, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, and a holiday collection, My Kind of Christmas.

For her next recording, the Country Music Hall of Famer is headed back to her roots.

“I want to do a country album,” Reba says. “I want to do a stone-cold country album.”

“A friend of mine says people would ask her, ‘What’s Reba looking for?’ And she would say, ‘Reba’s looking for what made her Reba.’ So, just those songs that really touch your heart.”

So far, we don’t know the timetable for Reba’s next disc. Her most recent effort, 2017’s Sing It Now, took home the Grammy for Best Roots Gospel Album.

(You Life Me) Up to Heaven

LIVE on That Nashville Music.
“(You Lift Me) Up to Heaven” is a song recorded by American country music artist Reba McEntire. It was released in June 1980 as the first single from the album Feel the Fire. The song reached #8 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.  It was written by Johnny MacRae, Bob Morrison, Bill Zerface and Jim Zerface.

She promoted the song by singing it on famous TV shows in 1980 like Pop Goes The Country. She also sang it on the 1980 Academy of Country Music Awards.

My “personal” response from Facebook

“We received your report and appreciate your patience as we work to fix technical problems on Facebook. Though we can’t update everyone who submits a report, we’re using your feedback to improve the Facebook experience for everyone.”

So it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting the facebook content back anytime soon.  Yeah unfortunately that means a big chunk (several years) of fancyreba.com history is lost, but that’s why we’re back on the web.  I’d like to ask everyone visiting the website, to please share with friends to visit the fancyreba.com again.  We had no notice about losing the facebook page, so we have no way to let fans looking for us there know we are here.  Just word of mouth, so your help is much appreciated!

Creating a REBA quilt

This is a snap shot showing many of my Reba concert T-shirts.  I’ve decided to transform my shirts into a one of a kind Reba quilt.  I will share a picture of the final project once it’s completed.  I’m excited to see how it turns out!
