Reba McEntire will begin work on a new studio album this summer in Nashville. The superstar recently wrote a few songs with Carole King with the new album in mind, however the fruits of their collaborations didn’t make the grade, according to McEntire.
“We got together–Carole King (news) and I did–to write some songs, and the songs that I heard, I’m gonna pass on,” McEntire says. “I’m the type of person [that] I don’t care who writes it, who produces it, where it comes from. I’m lookin’ for the best songs for the new CD, and so, unfortunately, that didn’t make the cut.”
McEntire had also hoped to record a duet with King for the new project, but those plans have been put on hold. “Carole and I have not talked anymore about doin’ a duet together, but hopefully someday we’ll get to work on a project together cause I’m a huge fan of hers and we’re great friends and she’s a wonderful lady.”
The singer spent part of last week in a photo session in Los Angeles for the new album, which is slated to hit stores on November 18.
McEntire is scheduled to head into the studio to begin recording the project later this month.
