Country superstar Reba McEntire releases a new music video for her timeless song “What If” today. Written by Diane Warren and originally released in 1997, Reba felt compelled to re-release the song with an updated video as an encouraging message of hope and positivity. The uplifting track is also available for the first time on digital platforms today, listen HERE.
“This song is as relevant today as it was 23 years ago,” shares Reba. “That’s the power of a great song and Diane Warren is no stranger to writing great songs. Even though we may not be able to physically reach out with just one hand right now, we can still be there for each other and take care of our neighbors, essential workers and medical professionals. Re-releasing this song and updated video with its message of care, hope and love felt like the right thing to do. Maybe we still can change things.”
