We miss Reba McEntire, who doesn’t right. She’s one of country music’s greatest country singer, and the way she delivers her song is full of emotions and authenticity. She makes a cover as if she owns it. Since we haven’t heard any new single from her, why not check out some of her old songs.

Reba McEntire Sings “Turn On the Radio”

In 2010, McEntire recorded a badass song written by Cherie Oakley, Mark Oakley, and J.P. Twang. The single is narrated by a woman who was torn apart by her ex-lover, and as a result, she became one hell of a tough woman. Instead of taking him in and loving him again, she told him to never come back. She says that he’s never gonna hear from her ever again, but only by listening to the radio.

Sometimes it’s difficult to resist the temptation when someone we love tries to come back to our life, even though we know that being with that person will do nothing good. But in McEntire’s single ” Turn on the Radio,” she reminds us that we don’t have to hurt ourselves just to be with someone else. Instead, we must learn to stand up and care for ourselves more by not letting our past lovers bully us. This song is meant to be for you if you can’t resist your ex who’s constantly texting you. Tell him to back off!

Chart Performance

“Turn on the Radio” came from McEntire’s album All the Women I Am. The single topped the country chart at number one on the Billboard, and it also secured a spot on the Hot 100 chart. This marked McEntire’s last number one on the country chart and her 25th number one on the chart.

You can hear me on the radio!
You wanna turn me on, turn on your stereo.
You can sing along, while they’re playin’ my song.
