And she hopes that it will nudge the country music to a more traditional route.

“Well, I was hoping that if country music wasn’t planning on heading back to more traditional country, maybe this might give it a little nudge. Because I definitely sure would like to have the old traditional country music back, but with a new flavor that the younger generation of country music artists can put to it … add their touch.”

In a recent interview, she expressed that her goal was to create a ‘stone cold country’ album. She was then asked why this was the kind of album that she wanted to go for now.

“I love this kind of music.  I miss it, and I’ve always wanted to sing Western Swing.  Red Stegall is one of my nearest and dearest friends and I love his music.  I love to dance to that kind of music.  I did ‘Invitation to the Blues” on my very first album.  Don’t have very many of those kind of songs.  So, to have dance songs, great hit your heart type songs, that’s just the kind of album I wanted to do.  And I’m so grateful the record label said, ‘You bet, go for it.’”

However, the “No U in Oklahoma” singer expressed that the most important thing to her was choosing the songs that were authentic to the heart. She wanted what was best for the album. Beyond that, she wanted to create a variety of songs as well.

“I went to look for songs that you can dance to, that are reminiscent of the songs that (my siblings) Pake and Suzy and I did when we were the Singin’ McEntires.  Cause that’s where we played all the time, was rodeo dances, dance halls and you had to have a song that people could dance to, and that’s what’s on this album… So, to have dance songs, great hit your heart type songs, that’s just the kind of album I wanted to do.”

‘Stronger Than The Truth’ drops on the 5th of April.
