Reba McEntire Shows a Different Ecstasy Feel in “Freedom”


Everyone is so excited about the release of the upcoming album of Reba McEntire Stronger Than The Truth. Ahead of the album’s release, the country superstar has begun dropping singles off the record. Songs from the album such as “No U in Oklahoma,” “In His Mind,” “Tammy Wynette Kind of Pain,” and its title track were previously released. Each of the songs evokes different emotions at various levels. Another single from the album entitled “Freedom” is worth a listen and has an interesting message to convey.

The Kind of “Freedom” in Reba McEntire’s New Single

What better word to describe McEntire’s single “Freedom” than banger? As it stands out as the most contemporary arrangement of the 63-year-old singer. The song is, indeed, unbelievably awesome! It’s true, the theme is not very unique. It speaks about that liberating feeling when one has finally found the right person to love, which is quite common in many romantic songs.

However, the lyrics evoke a different kind of joy, like the one singing it is celebrating. In particular, the words narrate how triumphant the protagonist is because after going through a series of heartbreak, she’s finally in love with the right person, and that makes her feel free. Yet, she puts an interesting twist in the chorus, saying that the price of being free is not cheap.

That’s why people fight for it, rise for it
Burn up the night for it
Cry for it, pine for it
Cross rivers wide for it
Once you’ve held the truth, there’s nothing you won’t do
And when I look into your eyes I know why people die for it
Freedom, loving you feels like freedom

Jay Brunswick, Tommy Cecil, Jaida Dreyer, and John Pierce wrote the song which is the lead single on McEntire’s album. It was released last March 22.
