Take us to church, Reba.
The country legend released a brand new gospel album today, My Chains Are Gone, featuring some of her “most beloved hymns of all time”, including classics like “Amazing Grace,” “I’ll Fly Away,” and “How Great Thou Art”.
She put it out with a coinciding live DVD that includes footage from her 2017 first solo headlining show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
On the new record, there are tons of great collaborations with artist like Lauren Daigle, Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and The Isaacs.
One of my favorite’s so far is her duet with her former daughter-in-law and powerhouse vocalist, Kelly Clarkson, on “Softly And Tenderly.” The hymn was originally written and composed by Will L. Thompson in 1880, it has become a staple in many churches ever since then.
Reba actually included a similar version of the song on her 2017 Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope album with Kelly and Trisha Yearwood.
This is one of those beautiful hymns that seems to never get old, and will instantly take you back to a little white church and old wooden pew every single time you hear it:
She teamed up with Christian singer Lauren Daigle for a beautiful, acoustic duet on Reba’s original song, “Back To God” that worth a listen, as well:
