Reba McEntire's newest album, Stronger Than the Truth, is a return to the traditional country that she loved and sang growing up. Each of the project's tracks has a distinct role to play on the album, and each one was carefully chosen by McEntire and her producer, Buddy Cannon, as they assembled the collection of songs they wanted to record.

Some of the tracks on Stronger Than the Truth were new to McEntire when she began searching for material for her new album, while others were songs that she'd carried around for a long time, waiting for the right opportunity to record them. Additionally, two of the project's tracks were co-written by McEntire.

Ahead of the release of Stronger Than the Truth, McEntire shared the backstory behind each of the songs included on the new project. Read on to learn more.
