No U In Oklahoma
McEntire gets creative in spelling out what heartbreak is in her new song “No U In Oklahoma.”
“You put the T for tears in Texas
S for sad in St. Louis
Our reckless travels led us
To the state of Missouri
I cried clear ‘cross Carolina
‘Bout some bar in Tennessee
There’s no U in Oklahoma
And that’s okay with me”
But despite its downtrodden lyrics, the happy sounding song is a huge nod to traditional country. It was written by McEntire, Ronnie Dunn, and Donna McSpadden. The heartache aspect of the song is brilliantly interwoven with the vibe of “I’ve Been Everywhere” – style of a song that fits like a glove in the song’s narrative.
Take a listen to the song below!
Stronger Than The Truth
In a press release back in 2018, McEntire’s new album promised to trace back to traditional country roots.
“I grew up on an 8,000-acre family ranch singing at dance halls, honky-tonks and rodeos with my brother and sister. Stronger Than the Truth takes me back to that kind of country music that I grew up with. I haven’t gotten to do that in a while, so I’m thrilled to pieces to release this new music.”
“Stronger Than The Truth” will be released on the 5th of April, on Friday. It will be just two days before McEntire will host the 54th ACM Awards in Las Vegas for the 16th time.
