submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#74 "I'm Gonna Take That Mountain," Reba McEntire (MCA)

Obviously, the time off from music (four years passed between her last album and Room to Breathe) helped to reenergize Reba, as "Mountain" is her best single in years, a bluegrass-tinged single sweetened with harmonies from Dan Tyminski (Union Station, Soggy Bottom Boys). Lyrically, it's the kind of uplifting "I will survive" kinda record Reba does so well, and vocally, she gives yet another great performance - the problem with much of Reba's career has never been her voice, it's been her material. But this is great material.
