NASHVILLE, TN (February 13, 2017) – Following a whirlwind media blitz in New York City last week with multiple appearances on national television, Reba McEntire continues to deliver for her fans as SING IT NOW: SONGS OF FAITH & HOPE debuts at No. 1 across both Billboard Country and Christian/Gospel charts with 54,426 in total consumption. She also came in at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Consumption chart. Holding the record for the most Top Country Albums No. 1s among women and being only the second artist to have a chart-topping album in each of the last four decades, this marks Reba’s thirteenth summit. The double-disc album released jointly through Nash Icon Records and Capitol Christian Music Group features traditional hymns and contemporary tracks, including collaborations with her sisters, mom, Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and The Isaacs. The new music also ascended into the upper echelon on iTunes All Genre and Country charts in the US and Canada as well as Amazon’s No. 1 Best Sellers, Hot New Releases, All Genre and Country platforms. 
 
The praise-worthy lead single, “Back To God,” topped the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart last week, representing the biggest jump since 2013 while the music video peaked on iTunes Top Videos across all genres and dominated the pinnacle spot on the Vevo Country Top 10 chart, eliciting over 4.4 million views already to date.

“This album has been a huge gift to me. It has helped heal my heart and has let me know I can move forward with faith and hope. I am so thankful to God for His guidance that lead to this moment. I pray that everyone who listens to these songs, receives exactly what the Holy Spirit wants them to receive. These CDs go out to my family, friends and fans remembering these songs from their growing up years and to those who are just beginning to sing along. We could all use more faith and hope. I sure do appreciate yours!” expressed Reba.
