Reba McEntire wants to give a big thank you to Sam Hunt. Not only did the New Artist of the Year nominee write the song “Love Somebody” for her new album, but Reba just so happened to make that song the title of her first release in five years.
“It’s about falling in love, falling out of love, looking for love, all the aspects and different ratios of love,” she told Radio.com earlier this week about why Love Somebody seemed like the perfect title for her 27th album.
The country queen says she wants to finally meet Hunt, who co-wrote the track with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, at this weekend’s ACM Awards in Texas, where she’ll be performing her track “Going Out Like That.”
“I’m looking forward to going to the awards show. It’s always like a family reunion to me,” she says. “But also, there are so many of the new artists that I haven’t even gotten to meet yet like Sam Hunt. I’m looking forward to it.”
