"I'm a Survivor:" Reba Teaches Us Strength

While the song highlights the storyline of a premature baby and a single mom who tirelessly takes care of her, the song is also an anthem for every woman who is strong even when the times get tough.

The baby girl without a chance
A victim of the circumstance
The one who ought to give up
But she’s just too hard headed
A single mom who works two jobs
Who loves her kids and never stops
With gentle hands and a heart of a fighter
I’m a survivor

This song also became the theme song for McEntire’s show entitled Reba. It aired on the WB network from 2001 to 2007. She used the words “I’m a Survivor” as a way of showing support for all hard-working women out there.

Recently McEntire expressed her support of women in the country music industry when she expressed her disappointment over the lack of female nominees in the 2019 ACM Awards.

“It doesn’t make me very happy, because we’ve got some very talented women who are out there working their butts off so[…] I’m missing my girlfriends in this”

I’m a Survivor

The song is part of her third compilation album entitled Greatest Hits Volume III: I’m a survivor. It was released in 2001. It peaked at number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it did a much better job at the Billboard Hot Country Songs, placing at number 3.
