* TruckDriversGearChange: "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" pulls off a rather unusual one, going from C Dorian on the verses to G major on the chorus. The second verse also contains a single line ("Well the Georgia patrol was makin' their rounds…") that goes up to G before returning.

* TruckDriversGearChange: Several songs in her catalog do this.

** "Is There Life Out There" goes from C to D at the second chorus. The album version contains a solo, and then another repeat of the chorus in the higher key, but the radio edit cuts off after the first key-changed chorus ends.

** "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" jumps from D to E-flat at the last chorus.
** "We're So Good Together": the opening is in G, but goes down to E for the verses, only for the choruses to go back up to G.
** Music/BrooksAndDunn originally recorded "Cowgirls Don't Cry" in the key of A Major all the way through. When they released a remix that had Reba singing the final chorus, this required a key change due to her different vocal range. The result was a gear change all the way up to the key of E.

* "Fancy" is a belting, rocking song about an impoverished teenage girl being forced into prostitution by her dying mother after her father abandons the family.

* AdvertisedExtra: A bizarre [[InvertedTrope inversion]] came with "Every Other Weekend". The album version had Music/KennyChesney as a duet partner, but since her label couldn't reach an agreement with his, the single version had Skip Ewing singing duet vocals. Most stations played the Chesney version anyway, even before it was confirmed as a single. As a result, it was credited to Reba and Kenny for the first few weeks it was on the chart before its release, then to "Reba [=McEntire=] with Kenny Chesney or Skip Ewing" for one week, then just Reba for the rest of its chart run.

CountryMusic's reigning queen for the better part of two decades, Oklahoman Reba [=McEntire=] has done it all. In her career, she has racked up more than thirty #1 hits (out of more than 80 singles overall) - more than any other female country music artist - and had the first multi-platinum album by a female country act. She is known for her [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents twangy voice]], [[FieryRedhead bright red hair]] and strong, no-nonsense material. Her accolades include two Grammys (for "Whoever's in New England" and "Does He Love You"), as well as several trophies from the two major country music award associations, the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association. Although her radio hits were fewer and further between in the 2000s, she came back in full force in late 2009-early 2010 with "Consider Me Gone," the biggest hit of her career.

* TheCoverChangesTheGender: Twice. She changed Music/TheEverlyBrothers' "Cathy's Clown" from first to third person (resulting in the story changing to a third party observing the storyline), and Lee Greenwood's "Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands" from third to first. Oddly, even though she was singing "Ring on my finger, time on my hands", she kept the original title on the CD listing and on the charts.

** "Ring On My Finger, Time On My Hands." Lee Greenwood's version is from a male perspective, admitting he had neglected his wife and admitting that her turning to another man was understandable. Reba's version takes it up another notch and virtually calls the husband cold and distant when he is home.

* WhamLine: "Somebody" starts out being about a man sharing his dating troubles with a waitress at his favorite diner. She tells him that he may be surprised to find the love of his life might be right in front of him and he never noticed. The chorus goes on to talk about how the perfect person could be someone you walk past every day and just haven't really met yet. As the man is taking the elevator in his apartment complex, he notices "that blue-eyed girl from two floors up" and wonders if she could be the one the waitress meant. The third verse makes it abundantly clear though that:
--> Now they laugh about the moment that it happened
--> The moment they both missed until that day
--> When he saw his future in her eyes
--> Instead of just another friendly face
--> And he wonders why
--> He searched so long
--> When she was always there
--> At that diner waiting on...
