Country Music Hall of Famer and Oklahoma native Reba McEntire gets emotional taking her fans behind the scenes of her sad new song "In His Mind."

Penned by the Chockie native with Liz Hengber and Tommy Lee James, “In His Mind” is a mournful tale about a man in denial that his lady is gone. 

Reba says in a video from the recording studio that  "In His Mind" provoked quite a reaction from her mother and her siblings, especially her brother Pake.

"Pake said, 'Wow, this is a great song,' and I told him where I got the idea and he said, 'Wow, Reba, I didn't know you could do that.' So getting that kind of a compliment from my brother really meant a lot," she says in a voice thick with emotion.

"In His Mind" is the third song we've heard from Reba's forthcoming album "Stronger Than the Truth," along with the Western swinging "No U in Oklahoma" and the heartbreaking title track

As previously reported, Reba will be releasing her highly anticipated new album Friday, April 5 on Big Machine Records. She will celebrate the release by returning to host the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards. 

The 2019 ACM Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, April 7 on the CBS Television Network. 

This year’s show will mark Reba’s 16th time as host, according to a news release.
