Oklahoma native and Country Music Hall of Famer Reba McEntire has unveiled another new song from her forthcoming album "Stronger Than the Truth": the uplifting romantic anthem "Freedom," which will give your heart wings.

In a behind-the-scenes video, Reba reveals that she nailed the soaring vocal in one take, which is impressive.

"Freedom" is the sixth song we've heard from Reba's upcoming album, along with the rollicking "Storm in a Shot Glass," the heartbreaker "Tammy Wynette Kind Of Pain," the mournful "In His Mind," the Western swinging "No U in Oklahoma"and the heart-rending title track
