Going Out Like That-Reba (Valory/Nash)

I’ve awaited with much trepidation the arrival of the first baby to come out of the rather icky-feeling marriage of a record label and radio company. Glad to see this child isn’t near as bad as I could imagine it might well have been. On the negative side, it’s a good minute longer than it needs to be, being filled with standard-issue guitar riffs and two too-many repeats of the chorus. On the plus side, it’s the best single from Reba in about five years.
