Country music superstar Reba McEntire performs her rousing new song, ‘Freedom’ at the 54th ACM Awards. ‘Freedom’ is the lead single from Reba’s latest album, ‘Stronger Than The Truth.’
“That’s why people fight for it, rise for it
Burn up the night for it
Cry for it, pine for it
Cross rivers wide for it
Once you’ve held the truth
There’s nothin’ you won’t do
And when I look into your eyes
I know why people died for it
Freedom, loving you feels like freedom”
Reba McEntire is one of the most well known voices in country music. Sine her rise to stardom in the 1970s, Reba has truly made a name for herself as a powerhouse vocal talent.
Her latest album is a true testament of the struggles she has overcome and the strength she found within. ‘Freedom’ is the perfect song to kick off Reba’s new era.
This powerful song holds dual meanings. Not only is ‘Freedom’ a patriotic album, but it’s also a story about a woman finding love. The ability for her fans to relate to the music is a big consideration for Reba.
“I want everybody to be able to relate to these songs. That makes a very successful song and a very popular song, when they can relate to it, when they come back and say, “Oh my gosh, she wrote this song for me.” Or, “That’s my life story.” Or, “Me and my best friend can relate to that.” That’s what makes a really good song.”
