reba04       Reba has passed the age where most female country artists become irrelevant. As her last single “Strange” proved by becoming her highest solo debut on the country charts Reba hasn’t quite reached the point of irrelevance yet. Her newest single “Consider Me Gone” sounds like it has the potential to become a pretty big radio hit. With the kind of slick production that makes it sound like it would fit in perfectly with the kind of songs that are in the top 10 on the country charts at the moment.

       Like most of the songs that are in the top 10 on the country charts it leaves something to be desired, though, especially coming from someone with a track record and musical history like Reba. Lyrically it’s nothing compelling. It does have a couple of good lines though. The best thing about this song is Reba’s singing. As usual she gives a very strong vocal performance, especially near the end. The bottom line is that this is a decent song that will probably find it’s way to the top 10, but Reba can do better than this.
