Reba McEntire Takes Us ‘Back to God’ in Powerful New Video
Powerful music needs a powerful music video, and Reba McEntire managed to match the two with her latest single, “Back to God.”
An emotional country hymn, “Back to God” is loaded with questions for the listener: “Have you lost a love? / Do you feel like givin’ up? / Has your heart been broken? / Are your kids okay? / Will they come home safe? / Do you lie there hoping?”
As the song continues, McEntire hammers home in the chorus that the only way to ease these stresses is to “Fold your hands and beg and plead / You gotta keep on praying. … We can’t go on like this and live like this / We can’t love like this / We gotta give this world back to God.”
To visually match the song lyrics, McEntire worked with director Mason Dixon, filming scenes for the music video at Nashville’s Tulip Street United Methodist Church and Mount Olivet Cemetery.
