Reba McEntire Announces New Box Set, Drops 3 New Versions of Former Hits

Reba McEntire is releasing new music! The 66-year-old has quietly dropped new versions of three of her former hits, including “I’m a Survivor,” “Is There Life Out There” and “Consider Me Gone.” The songs are part of an upcoming box set, REVIVED REMIXED REVISITED, out on October 8. Pre-orders are available here.

McEntire teased the project by posting the three words in the box set’s title on social media, later explaining what the project was on her website.

“REVIVED includes some of Reba’s biggest hits as they’ve evolved over the years in her live show and features all new arrangements of fan favorites like ‘Is There Life Out There’ and ‘Can’t Even Get The Blues’ recorded with Reba’s touring band,” the statement explains. “REMIXED puts a whole new spin on songs including ‘Little Rock’ and ‘I’m A Survivor’ and on REVISITED, Reba works with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb to strip back and recut songs like ‘Somebody Should Leave’ and ‘Consider Me Gone,’ and it features the long-awaited pairing of Reba and Dolly Parton on the classic duet “Does He Love You.

Parton previously hinted that she was also part of McEntire’s new album, revealing that the two had collaborated on “Does He Love You,” which McEntire formerly sang with Linda Davis.

“Reba and I just did a song together,” Parton told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “It’s on her album. We redid the song, ‘Does He Love You” that she did years and years ago. We did a new version of it. It turned out really good. I’ve always wanted to sing with her, and don’t know why we never did it until now. But we really sounded good together. I think the fans are going to like it.”

McEntire, who recently divulged that both she and her boyfriend, CSI: Miami actor Rex Linn, had COVID-19 in spite of getting vaccinated, hinted in April that she was recording new music.

McEntire is scheduled to head back out on her Reba: Live in Concert Tour, which was postponed twice already. But as the cases of the delta variant of COVID-19 are on the rise, the Grand Ole Opry member acknowledges she isn’t sure what will happen next year.

“I have no idea what plans for next year are,” McEntire said livestream on TikTok. “The COVID thing has really hit hard and spikes are going everywhere right now … and it’s all over the country — this new variant. We have plans right now to go back on tour in January, February and March. We have plans with being with Brooks & Dunn at Caesars in December — the first two weeks, almost three weeks of December — but we don’t know if that’s going to go.”
