Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Reba McEntire (vocals); Biff Watson, Steve Gibson (acoustic guitar); Kent Wells (electric guitar); Terry Crisp (steel guitar); Larry Franklin (mandolin, fiddle); Paul Hollowell (piano); Doug Sisemore (keyboards); Chopper Anderson (bass); Scott Hawkins (drums, percussion); Liana Manis, Joe Chemay (background vocals).
  • WHAT IF IT'S YOU features a warmer and much lighter-handed production than most of this country superstar's previous albums. McEntire co-produced it herself, and recorded with her touring band rather than the usual studio musicians, adding to a sense of intimacy and richness.
  • With its strong woman's narrative voice, "How Was I To Know" sets the tone of an album that abounds with courageous, spirited female characters. McEntire's lighthearted side shines on songs like "I'd Rather Ride Around With You," the feel-good story of a bridesmaid who runs out on her friend's wedding for a joyride with a guy; even in that carefree context, the theme of independence is clear. There is a sense of lightness and joy throughout WHAT IF IT'S YOU; what's absent, even from the ballads, are the heaviness and overwhelming drama of McEntire's recent releases.

  • What If It's You doesn't offer any new tricks from Reba McEntire, but it is nevertheless an excellent reminder of her deep talents as a vocalist. The album is slightly uneven, but at its best -- such as on the single "The Fear of Being Alone," "She's Calling it Love" and "I'd Rather Ride Around with You" -- it is as good as anything McEntire has ever done. ~ Thom Owens
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (11/08/96, pp.65-66) - "...Instead of the hotel-lounge of McEntire's recent efforts, these songs are propelled by ringing rock guitars and harder beats. In essence, she's made her first Mary Chapin Carpenter record..." - Rating: B
