NEW ALBUM: REBA MCENTIRE | MY CHAINS ARE GONE
Reba McEntire is back and has released a collection of new hymns and gospel project, "My Chains Are Gone." Filled with beloved hymns, duets and iconic McEntire performances. Included on the tracklist are standards like "How Great Thou Art," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," and "I'll Fly Away," plus some of the faith-focused hits that McEntire has released over the years, like "God and My Girlfriends," "The Greatest Man I Never Knew" and "Back to God." The announcement of the new album came just days after the fifth anniversary of "Sing It Now: Songs of Faith and Hope," which was McEntire's first-ever gospel album. Several of the songs that originally appeared on that tracklist are featured on "My Chains Are Gone." However, the new project includes a much-requested look back at McEntire's 2017 headlining performance at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. Footage from that night appears on the DVD portion of her upcoming release, including special performances by guests the Isaacs, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood. Newly captured footage from the singer's 2021 performances will feature on the DVD, too. The CD version of "My Chains Are Gone" includes another collaboration: Christian singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle lends her voice to an acoustic version of "Back to God," the final song on the 12-track collection. Last year, the star released a three-part box set, "Revived Remixed Revisited," which included some of her biggest hits as they’ve evolved in her live show. The "Remixed" part put a new spin on some of her most beloved tracks.
