Whoever's in New England

by Reba McEntire

After an unsuccessful stint at Mercury, Reba signed on with MCA and, under producer Jimmy Bowen, recorded this breakthrough album. Released in 1986, just as Nashville was waking up to the fact that it had an additional upscale audience, WHOEVER'S IN NEW ENGLAND showcased Reba's strong country roots on the rollicking "Can't Stop Now" and the weepy "You Can Take the Wings off Me." But the head-turner for Reba fans was the title track, a transcendent tearjerker that gave her free reign to show how emotional a singer she could be. Add on the rocking feminist anthem "Little Rock" and the beautifully barren "Don't Touch Me There" and you have an album that not only established McEntire as queen of Nashville divas but hinted that country music could reach far beyond its traditional boundaries with a bigger beat and more ambitious lyrics.
