Reba McEntire, "I Keep on Lovin' You"

Track Review
4.5

It's been 26 years since Reba McEntire first topped the charts with "Can't Even Get the Blues," and her last single, "Consider Me Gone," is her most successful ever. It topped Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart for three weeks, becoming the longest-running No. 1 since Taylor Swift's "Our Song" in 2007. With "Gone" hitting the peak, McEntire has scored chart-toppers in four decades. She follows that hit with another strong single. Written by Brooks & Dunn's Ronnie Dunn and frequent collaborator Terry McBride, this is a gorgeous country ballad about weathering the stormy times in a relationship and staying committed. McEntire's performance resonates with warmth, and her phrasing sets an intimate, conversational tone that draws the listener in. Sounds like another No. 1. -Deborah Evans Price
