This is the third appearance of Country artist Reba McEntire on WSVNRadio.net. Just as
her past two albums,
her 1989 release, Sweet Sixteen is another exceptional one. It is easy to say, that Reba IS Country music.
Whether it be traditional, old-fashioned, or even in the mix of today's Pop/Country, she has always reflected upon
her general style of music, and that is COUNTRY.
From this release, her version of the Everly Brothers tune, "Cathy's Clown" reached the top of the
Billboard Country chart. Just as the Everly Brothers reached #1 with the original, Reba made her own style
to this song, by slowing it down, and (once again), making it sound as pure Country, and better styled-Country as
the original. (The Everly Brothers version was more Rock, yet they were labeled as either Rock and/or Country.)
Where do we start with the Country again? "'Til Love Comes Again" is really old-fashioned Country.
"Am I The Only One Who Cares" is more traditional. The following songs have its own "rocking" sound, yet its
still Country: "Say The Word" has a good Country bounce, almost like the Gatlin Brothers' "Houston."
A little honky tonk flavor, Dolly Parton-ish on "Walk On," where a relaxing Country style is heard on "You
Must Really Love Me."
Rounding off, there are two nice Country ballads here: "It Always Rains On Saturday," and "Little Girl."
Having a more Pop feel than Country (they call it Pop/Country) has the following songs: "Somebody Up There Likes Me,"
and "A New Love."
Once again, Reba McEntire proves she IS Country, and a legend. Sweet Sixteen is a good title for this
release, it's sweet sounding Country music, and for any Country (and TRUE Country) fan, this one will be enjoyed, and
enjoyed by all.
