Reba McEntire sang a rendition of her hit song “Fallin’ Out of Love” at the Grand Ole Opry. McEntire performed the song to celebrate 30 years since she released her 1990 album Rumor Has It. Backed by her band, McEntire took center stage for a soulful and tender performance.
McEntire felt moved by the lyrics and melody of her song. During the performance, McEntire fought back tears as she sang its lyrics. Later, the singer shared the song to her Twitter account.
On YouTube, several commenters fell in love with McEntire’s performance. One user wrote a glowing review, “OMG I almost like that better than the original. You can tell she was singing from experience and with heart. I have got to have this on CD it was phenomenal. No she can’t sing as belting as she once could but man that proves right there she is still the reigning QUEEN OF COUNTRY. I’VE GOT TO LISTEN TO THAT OVER AND OVER. It was probably my favorite song on that album. The ending is just beautiful on this one and the original.”
Another commented how painful the song may be for the singer, “This must have been a hard song for her to sing since she had to actually live the words in the song. Glad her ex is a memory and she has moved on.”
Reba McEntire published ‘Rumor Has It’ in 1990.
McEntire first published her album Rumor Has It in 1990. The album featured four hit singles including “Fallin Out of Love,” which reached No.2 on the Billboard charts. The album also featured one of McEntire’s signature songs “Fancy.” Recently, McEntire released the album to celebrate its anniversary.
“I never imagined I’d get the chance to put out an album for a second time. It’s just so much fun to look back and remember where we were and what we were doing when they were originally released,” McEntire said. “This album, in particular, is very special to me because it was the first time I got to record with Tony Brown and he was the reason I finally got to record ‘Fancy.’ Now here we are 30 years later and I never end a show without singing that song.”
McEntire released the 30th anniversary edition of the album on Sept. 11.
