Queen of Country Music Reba McEntire has had one of the finest country songs that ruled from chart to chart. She is definitely a legend worthy to reckon, and an artist certain to be celebrated. Moreover, she is also one of the few artists who has earned Platinum albums and hits. One of her albums,  For My Broken Heart, achieved Double-Platinum on this day in 1992. In addition, this is her first album, in particular, to have been certified as is.

About the Album

Reba McEntire released her sixteenth studio album called For My Broken Heart on October 1, 1991. This was actually the first time that Reba recorded and released an album after the plane crash that took the lives of most of the members of her band. Hence, Reba noted that this album is dedicated to her band; it is “a form of healing for all our broken hearts.” The songs were chosen exactly for them.

Furthermore, Reba co-produced the song with American record producer and pianist Tony Brown for MCA Records. For My Broken Heart contains 10 singles which were led off by the title track,  “For My Broken Heart,” written by Liz Hengber and Keith Palmer. It was followed by “Is There Life Out There,” “Bobby” (which Reba co-wrote with Don Schiltz), “He’s in Dallas,” and “All Dressed Up (With Nowhere to Go).” Then by “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” “Buying Her Roses,” “The Greatest Man I Never Knew,” “I Wouldn’t Go That Far,” “If I Had Only Known.” An original hit for American actress, comedienne and pop singer Vicki Lawrence in 1972, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” was so far one of Reba’s best covers.

For My Broken Heart was one of her highest charting albums on the Billboard 200 chart. Peaking at no. 13 on the said chart, the album gave Reba her biggest-selling studio albums, selling four million copies worldwide.

WATCH: “The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia” is one of the tracks of the album that hit in 1992.
