McEntire goes to number one with "Keep on Loving You"

Wednesday, August 26, 2009 – Reba McEntire's first new solo studio album in six years - and her first on her new label The Valory Music Co. - debuts at number 1 on both the Billboard Top Country and the Top 200 Albums charts.

"Keep On Loving You" was McEntire's first disc to go number 1 on the Top 200. McEntire holds the record as the female artist with the most number 1 albums on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, having earned 11 number 1 albums since the launch of the chart on Jan. 11, 1964. Reba had previously shared the title with Loretta Lynn with 10 albums.

"I have had a blast working with my new Valory Music Co. team, along with my Starstruck family, on this record," said McEntire. "To have this success at this time of my life and career means everything to me."
