All the Women I Am

For the first time, Reba puts Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Faith Hill) in the producer’s seat for what is a catalog of the various roles the singer’s life has encompassed. Reba kicks off the set with a trio of tough-woman songs, including the feisty, Carrie Underwood-esque single, “Turn On the Radio.” She transforms Beyoncé’s dramatic “If I Were a Boy” into a soulful, countrified look at love from a male perspective. One of her most precious roles—that of a mother—gets its own tribute in the touching “When You Have a Child.” She pays homage to the determination that took her from small-town girl to legendary entertainer with the ambitious “A Little Want To.” The title track, penned especially for Reba, is an arena-sized anthem with a stirring saxophone solo, in which she ticks off her varied roles as an eternal Okie, a Broadway starlet, a fighter, a lover and a road warrior, singing, I’ll give my heart to a song, but I’ll never sell my soul. That’s exactly how Reba’s approached her career thus far, and what she continues to do on this emotionally charged set of songs.
