REBA CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF HER LANDMARK ALBUM ‘RUMOR HAS IT’ WITH RE-RELEASE
Sounds Like Nashville | By Deborah Evans Price | September 11, 2020
Not every album stands the test of time, but Reba’s Rumor Has It is a landmark collection that certainly does. The hit 1990 album is being re-released September 11th in celebration of its 30th anniversary and will include three versions of fan favorite “Fancy.”
Rumor Has It has been certified triple-platinum by the RIAA, signifying sales of more than three million, and spawned four top ten hits including the title track, “You Lie,” “Fallin’ Out of Love” and “Fancy.” The project also marked Reba’s first collaboration with acclaimed record producer Tony Brown.
“The best thing about these songs—I’m looking at the list right now—they are all relevant today. Every one of them could be released today,” Reba tells Sounds Like Nashville and other local media via Zoom. “I think every one of them will hold up to today’s society and what’s going on. It’s about life, and that’s another reason why this album was so successful because these songs are relatable. People can say, ‘Wow! She’s singing that song to me.’ That’s what makes it a good song.”
