Reba McEntire's New Gospel Album Can Heal a Broken Heart

Reba McEntire is here to mend your broken heart — and hers.

The country music icon is set to release her new gospel album "Sing it Now: Songs of Faith & Hope" this Friday, Feb. 3 following her highly-publicized divorce from Narvel Blackstock after 26 years of marriage.

This new music couldn't come at a better time for Reba, who has been focusing on her faith since their unfortunate split.

"I needed it myself, going through two and half years of changes in my life," she told Fox News of the double album of contemporary and classic gospel tunes. "And who better to lean on than God? And that's who I needed to be listening to. And I needed that faith, that faith strengthened, that hope."

Reba, 61, and Narvel, 60, announced their separation in August 2015. The former couple — who tied the knot in 1989 — are parents to 26-year-old son, Shelby. Narvel is additionally a father to three children from a previous relationship (including son Brandon Blackstock, who is married to Kelly Clarkson).

The Reba star recently spoke out about the duo's breakup. "The divorce was not my idea. I didn't want it in any shape, form, or fashion. So, it was really hard to make the adjustment when someone's not happy," she revealed. "I just want everybody to be happy in their lives, because our lives are too short to be miserable."

"I'm going to keep on loving life. I'm going to keep making new friends. I'm going to call the ones I love in my life — my friends and family — a little more often and I'm going to keep on telling them how much they are loved," Reba added following her divorce.
