New Reba McEntire song "Somehow You Do" will be featured in forthcoming film Four Good Days.
A music video for the song debuted Friday (April 23). McEntire's mighty vocals pair with powerful visuals from Southern California (courtesy of acclaimed filmmaker Jon Avnet (Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business, Black Swan)) and the film itself to tell a gripping story about soldiering through life's challenges.
The song was written by Diane Warren, whose Oscar-nominated songs include "How Do I Live," which was recorded by both LeAnn Rimes and Trisha Yearwood. Warren also wrote McEntire's "What If?" and "I'll Be."
"Reba's interpretation of Diane Warren's song was so nuanced and moving," says Avnet in a press release. "When I was asked if I would direct the filming of it, I jumped at the opportunity. I hoped to use the film to interpret both the song and the movie 'Four Good Days.' It was worth every minute in the desert working with Reba. She's a pro's pro and fun to boot! And of course, this is my second go around with Diane Warren. The first was 'Because You Loved Me,' that Celine Dion sung for my film 'Up Close and Personal.' That one worked out well and I think 'Somehow You Do' should as well."
Part of the song could be heard in a trailer Tweeted in March by McEntire.
"I was honored to be asked to sing the theme song for the new Glenn Close and Mila Kunis 'moving and powerful' movie, Four Good Days - in theaters April 30," the country superstar tweeted. "It was written by the amazing Diane Warren who also wrote my songs 'I'll Be' and 'What If.'"
