All the Women I Am

Album: All the Women I Am (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This disco-twangy tune is the title track from the 26th studio album by American country music singer Reba McEntire. The album title relates to the many roles that McEntire plays in her life and she told Jam! Music that she believes the toughest challenge today's women face is simply finding time for themselves in order to stay sane. "I have been all these women in this album," explained the country icon. "I have lectured a boy or two. I have been divorced. I have a child. I have been in love. All these songs - it's the women - all the hats they wear. And I've worn all the hats in this album, so this is all the women I am."

    "She's a giver," McEntire elaborated. "She's a caretaker. She's a lover. She's a mother. She's a worker and she can triple-task at one time. Finding time for herself and not feeling guilty about it is probably the most important thing she can do for herself. I love getting older and maturing. You learn about yourself, to do things for yourself and not to feel guilty. That's a big step for women. I've got the kids, the work, being a wife. When that day off happens, I cherish it. I'll schedule lunch with my girlfriends. I love to do that. That's a treat for me."
