There's no better way to start the New Year than having a heart full of thanks. Country superstar begins 2015 with a litany of items she is grateful to God for, and this includes her new album and recording contract she has just signed. She will have a new single "Going Out Like That" coming out on January 6th.
"I like to go with my family and friends and celebrate and think about all the great things that we got to do in the year, what we're thankful for," McEntire tells CMT about her holiday tradition. "And then bring in the new year."
Recently signed to Nash Icon Record, the label that has recently signed Ronnie Dunn of Brooks and Dunn. McEntire is grateful that she is still making records after all these years.
"I feel very blessed to still be making country music and sharing it with the people in America and around the world who love it as much as I do," McEntire says.
"My least favorite song of all time is 'Auld Lang Syne' because it's so sad," she adds. "I don't know why it's so sad to me, but I wish we had come up with a more happy song besides that for New Year's Eve."
