NASHVILLE (Billboard) – Reba McEntire’s new “Love Revival” will be sold exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown stores in January and February, making the country singer the latest in a string of top artists to release albums through the retailer.
McEntire was eager to participate, but there was a hitch. “I said, ‘I’d love to,'” she recalled, “but the problem is, I didn’t have that many love songs that I’ve recorded during my 31-year career, believe it or not.”
The album contains four songs recorded exclusively for Hallmark, among them a version of country act Restless Heart’s 1987 No. 1 single “I’ll Still Be Loving You.” “That’s one of my all-time favorite songs,” McEntire said. She invited members of Restless Heart to sing vocals with her on the song.
At the 3,700 Hallmark Gold Crown stores nationwide, “Love Revival” will be priced at $7.95 with the purchase of three Hallmark cards.
