McEntire "Going Out" with new song

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 – 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.

With "My Chains Are Gone," McEntire gives us a selection of songs she – like Underwood – grew up singing. Therefore, she knows them all like the back of her hand, the way ...
CD review - Stronger Than the Truth The beauty of Reba McEntire's albums flows from her way with a phrase, knowing when to modulate to carry us deeper into sadness or joy and when to pull back when she wants us to listen quietly to the lessons of a tear falling. Her songs can also urge us to scamper across the dance floor to twin fiddles, celebrating the exhilarating freedom of the moment or the satisfaction of breakup from a messy relationship. This album follows the end of McEntire's marriage to her manager. ...
CD review - My Kind of Christmas (expanded version) Reba McEntire's "My Kind of Christmas," is essentially the same album, with the same title, she released a while back through Cracker Barrel. The project is mostly comprised of the country Wonder Woman's strong singing voice, backed by acoustic piano. The new wrinkle in this expanded edition, though, is a bevy of guest vocalists. These guest spots are so good, it's worth the extra bucks to get the full package. Reba is joined by the dynamic husband and wife team, Vince ...
