– Reba McEntire released a new single, her first from an album coming out later this year.
"Going Out Like That" came out today and will go for adds on Jan. 12.
The Oklahoma native debuted "Going Out Like That," her first new song in four years, on America's Morning Show. The song is the first for McEntire on the Nash Icon label, which is a joint venture between the Big Machine Labor Group and Cumulus Radio. McEntire is slated to release a new disc in April.
"When you listen to thousands of songs trying to find just the right one to record, a really great song jumps out at you. That's exactly what 'Going Out Like That' did to me. It jumped out because it's a great song with up-tempo sassiness!!! The first time I heard it, a man was singing the demo. When I sang it coming from a female perspective, it became a woman's power anthem. Sure hope you like it," McEntire said via Twitter.
Songwriters Ben Hayslip, Rhett Akins and Jason Sellers originally penned "Going Out Like That" with a male in mind, but after few lyrical tweaks, McEntire cut the song with long-time producer Tony Brown.
McEntire announced last year that she had signed with Nash Icon after spending most of her career on MCA.
