Everyone needs a certain appreciation for the classics – those songs that inspired the Texas and Nashville tunes we hear today. There was a certain honesty in songwriting back in the day that deserves to be recognized and remembered.

Reba lost her sweet old man this week, so we thought we would be appropriate to throw it back to one of the most uplifting singles of her career, Is There Life Out There.

This tune came off what is possibly her most sentimental records "For My Broken Heart," which was released following the death of her band in an unfortunate plane accident. It is an album full of 'traditional songs of emotional turmoil,' one that is fitting at this current time.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the McEntire family.
