Strange

Leave it to Reba McEntire to deliver the ultimate sassy anthem about a woman's resilience. The veteran country singer performed this delightful number April 5 at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, which she also hosted. Written by Jason Sellers, Wendell Mobley and Neil Thrasher, the lyric talks about a woman who finds the sun still shining after a bad breakup. The melody has a cool, edgy feel and McEntire uses her voice to soar, swoop and celebrate the realization that life ain't over because a relationship is. When she sings, "Got half a mind to spend my whole paycheck on one of those dresses/Those strapless black ones that are so famous for teaching lessons," you can just feel the scheming sarcasm. It's a delicious performance from one of country music's most gifted divas. This is the first taste of her debut set for Valory Music, which is also her first solo studio CD in six years. —Deborah Evans Price
