Reba McEntire has always been that female country artist who is not afraid to speak up her mind. In her 2019 album Stronger Than The Truth, the singer explored more about life’s experiences. In one of her songs in the album, the idea of getting away from a bad relationship is explored and we can all learn from it.
“Freedom” by Reba McEntire
Reba McEntire showed how great she is when she managed to record the song on the first take and that was it. Her producers approved the version of the first try because she was able to hit the right notes and emotions of the song. The song draws inspiration when Reba McEntire announced her separation from Narvel Blackstock after 26 years of marriage.
“It’s about this woman who’s had bad relationships, bad luck in love and then she finds this one person.”
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 died for it
Love is a very strong emotion and it can make us do anything even if we don’t want to. This Reba McEntire track explores the idea of wanting to break away from a relationship where love is no longer there. What is the sense of staying in a relationship when it is not beneficial to both parties anymore? It is only right for us to get away from a toxic situation and seek the freedom we have always wanted.
