Reba’s Hidden Album Treasures

In honor of my trip to Nashville to see the Reba McEntire exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame, I’m featuring a three-part blog series on “The Queen of Country Music”.

Yesterday was part one featuring my own person Reba exhibit.  If you missed it, here’s the link:  https://anthonypeoples.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/my-own-personal-reba-exhibit/

Since releasing her self-titled debut album in October 1977, Reba has released a total of 30 studio albums (including two Christmas and two “live” discs).  So, when it comes to selecting your favorite Reba songs that were never released as official singles, there’s more than 300 songs to narrow down to a small list.

I took on that challenge.  My initial list contained 65 songs. From there, I cut some and the number dropped to 36.

And, then it was a pain-staking process to choose what Reba tracks I thought should have been released to country radio as singles.  I hope you enjoy the list and please feel free to share your favorite Reba songs that were never released or didn’t make the Billboard Top 40 Country chart.
