In support of her recently released new album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, Reba McEntire kicked off a busy week of television appearances this morning (Feb. 6) with a visit to Today, where she completed the show’s trifecta: interviewee, co-host and performer.
In the interview segment, Reba chatted with hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb about the new album, revealing, “Well, one of the songs on the album is ‘God and My Girlfriends,’ and those are the two that really helped me through [recently losing my father and getting divorced],” said Reba. “My faith, my family and my friends, those are the things that helped me through . . .”
In a later segment, Reba joined Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones as a co-host and played a game of Country Confessions, where she revealed the craziest thing her concertgoers do and her favorite country song (“Fancy”).
Reba completed her Today duties by performing a few songs from the new album, including “Back to God” and the aforementioned “God and My Girlfriends,” which was written by Patricia Conroy, Lisa Hentrich and Marcia Ramirez.
