After a long dry spell, Reba is back on the country scene with a new CD! "Room to Breathe" was worth the wait.
Starting with the first track, Reba grabs your heart strings and tugs. Anyone that has gone thru adoption should recongnize the pain coming thru in "Secret." The song grabs you and then you realize what she's singing about and I'll be honest, it brought tears to my eyes, she captured exactly how some birthmothers feel. It's one song I just can't get enough of, no matter how many times I hear it on my CD player.
The CD continues with 11 more tracks that range from ballads to the chart topping spirited "I'm Gonna Take That Mountain." In true Reba fashion she grabs you and doesn't let go. From "My Sister" to her duet with Vince Gill "It Just Has to Be This Way" Reba takes each song and makes it her own, making you believe it's her life your getting a glimpse into.
While we love her WB show "Reba" she has been missed in the country music genre. Her distinctive voice and way of getting to the heart of music haven't changed and let's hope that it never does!
