I have interviewed Reba McEntire more than 20 times in my career. In my most recent interview, I told her about this list and asked what her top five Reba songs were, her response as she used her fingers to count, “’ Fancy,’ ‘Is There Life Out There,’ ‘I’m A Survivor,’ ‘Can’t Even Get The Blues,’ ‘Take It Back,’ and ‘Why Haven’t I Heard From You,’ that’s six and ‘Georgia,’ (‘The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia’) ‘Georgia’ has to be in there too, that’s seven.”

And yes, “Fancy” would be her number-one song. She offered, “I just love story songs.”

To celebrate her 68th birthday today (3/28), we dove deep into Reba’s catalog to rate what we think are her 40 best songs.
