Reba tops charts following ‘TODAY’ takeover

Reba McEntire proved the early bird gets the worm Monday morning (Feb 5th) as she took over NBC The TODAY Show, performing her brand new single “Back To God” and chatting with hosts Matt Lauer, Maria Shriver, Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.

The superstar entertainer is promoting her latest album Sing It Now: Songs Of Faith & Hope released February 3rd via Nash Icon Records/Capitol Christian Music Group. The singer treated the audience to two additional tracks: “Swing Low Sweet Chariot/Swing Down Chariot” and “God And My Girlfriends.”

A true labor of love, the double-disc album soared to the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Albums chart as well as Amazon All Genre and Country Albums charts. The album currently sits at #5 on the iTunes All Genre chart and has notched a slot in multiple markets globally including #1 on the iTunes Country chart in Canada.

McEntire continues the media rounds with an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Tuesday (Feb 7th) at 12:35 am/11:35 pm CT on NBC. She will continue with a co-hosting slot on ABC’s The View on Wednesday (Feb 8th) at 11 am/10 am CT.

Reba will showcase selections from the new album, along with several signature hits, during her two-show stint on February 15th at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. A rarity for the venue, the dual performances also marks her first time to headline a concert there. Limited tickets are available now at Ryman.com and Ticketmaster.com for the 2:30 pm matinee, which was announced after the 7:30 pm show sold out in less than an hour.
