When did Reba McEntire release her gospel album My Chains Are Gone?

McEntire's rich vocals bring a fresh yet reverent spin on cherished gospel songs, culminating in a compilation album that resonates with listeners old and new. Employing the use of a grand orchestra and carefully curating each song to respect the integrity of the original hymns, Reba effortlessly succeeded in creating a well-rounded and unique gospel release.

“I have said all along that music is very healing, and when you put the Lord involved in all that, if you involve him in it, it's going to be triple healing,” McEntire told Gaither Extra in 2024. “And it always has been for me. I've been through some rough times in my life, and the thing that has really helped me has been music. Because that's my connection to God. God gave me the voice to sing, through Mama. And I really take care of that gift because I know he could have given it to somebody else.”
