Behind The Scene Reissue

From Reba:

Success in any degree is never achieved by one person alone. They always need help. I’m sure glad the good Lord saw fit to give me lots of it.

This album is dedicated to all of those people who picked, sang, promoted, publicized, marketed, published, wrote, produced, played, supported, managed, booked, engineered, copied lyrics for me, and in general, just did a great job in the things they do.

It’s also dedicated to my road band and crew who I love dearly; my family, who got me started in all this; and Charlie ’cause when I’m tired and homesick he always says I can come home.

So, therefore, this album is released with hard work stamped on it—but it’s also covered with lots of love and affection from e and all of the folks behind the scene.
