Reba McEntire had a few announcements to make Thursday night (Dec. 15) via a Facebook Live video chat. The singer talked about winding up the 2016 year and all the things she has coming up for an exciting 2017. We’ll let her tell you all about it.
“Here’s what I have to tell you,” Reba said in the video. “Of course we’ll be going back to Vegas with Brooks & Dunn—February, June and December of next year. Really excited about that. The people at Caesars Coliseum are so sweet to us, we have a wonderful time. We start back in February, so come see us. Also, we’ll be going to Europe to the Country 2 Country concert festival. We’ll be going to Glasgow, Scotland, London and then to Dublin, Ireland. That’s going to be a lot of fun. Those dates are March 10, 11 and 12.”
And here’s the kicker, Reba then proceeded to announce a new gospel album.
“And today was a really special day because I got to shoot a video for my new first single off of the brand new album that’s going to be released February the 3rd of 2017,” Reba continued. “It’s a gospel album. The new song that we did the video for today is called “Back to God.” Loved it, it was very inspirational. We got to shoot it in this beautiful church on the east side of Nashville.
“The new album is called Sing It Now. It will be released February the 3rd, 2017. It’s called Songs of Faith & Hope and that’s what’s in the album. It’s a double album. One album has 10 hymns on it, songs that I grew up singing all my life. And the other one are 10 brand-new songs. It’s a joint partnership with Nash Icon and Capitol Christian. I was thrilled to death to get to do a gospel album, I’ve been wanting to do one forever.”
Reba also went on to announce a new song called “Softly and Tenderly,” that she recorded with Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood. That song is available on iTunes today. Fans can download a new song every Friday between today (Dec. 16) and Feb. 3. Pre-orders include autographed album, t-shirt and more at reba.com.
And if that wasn’t enough, Reba will be performing one-night-only show at the Ryman Auditorium on Feb. 15, 2017. “I have never performed a complete show at the Ryman Auditorium,” she said.
Tickets went on sale last night (Dec. 15) and the event is already sold out.
