Rumor Has It is the sixteenth studio album by American country music artist Reba McEntire, released on August 17, 1990. This album marks an important chapter in McEntire’s illustrious career, showcasing her ability to blend traditional country sounds with contemporary influences, appealing to a broad audience.

The album opens with the title track, “Rumor Has It,” a catchy, upbeat song that quickly became a fan favorite. The song’s narrative about small-town gossip and speculation is delivered with McEntire’s trademark charm and vocal prowess, setting the tone for the rest of the album.

“Fancy,” arguably the most iconic track on the album, is a cover of Bobbie Gentry’s 1969 hit. McEntire’s rendition has become one of her signature songs, telling the rags-to-riches story of a young girl named Fancy who overcomes adversity. The song’s dramatic storytelling and McEntire’s powerful performance resonate deeply, making it a standout track that remains a staple in her live performances.

“Fallin’ Out of Love” is a poignant ballad that showcases McEntire’s ability to convey deep emotion through her vocals. The song’s themes of heartache and moving on are universal, and McEntire’s delivery is both heartfelt and relatable.

The album also includes “Waitin’ for the Deal to Go Down,” a track that features a more traditional country sound with its twangy guitar riffs and storytelling lyrics. This song exemplifies McEntire’s roots in country music while highlighting her versatility as an artist.

“You Lie” is another highlight, featuring a soulful performance by McEntire. The song’s lyrics, dealing with betrayal and heartbreak, are delivered with a sense of vulnerability and strength that only McEntire can convey. This track further solidified her reputation as a powerful and emotive vocalist.

McEntire also demonstrates her ability to tackle more lighthearted themes with songs like “This Picture,” which balances melancholy with a sense of nostalgia and reflection. The song’s melody and lyrics create a vivid image of past memories, making it a relatable and touching piece.

The production on Rumor Has It is polished and sophisticated, with a blend of traditional country instrumentation and contemporary elements. This balance allows McEntire to reach a wide audience while staying true to her country roots. The album was produced by Tony Brown and Reba McEntire, who together created a cohesive and engaging listening experience.

Rumor Has It was both a commercial and critical success, reaching number two on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and earning a Platinum certification from the RIAA. The album’s success helped to further cement McEntire’s status as one of the leading figures in country music during the 1990s.
