As one of country music’s most accomplished, esteemed and cherished singers, Reba,  the redheaded powerhouse has contributed some powerful songs to the world throughout her lengthy career. And she’s not afraid to take a risk (or 20). Just look no further than tracks like “Fancy” or “She Thinks His Name Was John” or even the southern gothic murder tale “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.”

Reba enjoys a challenge and her conviction shows tremendously. While her 1991 album For My Broken Heart, her first album recorded after the tragic plane crash killed most members of her touring band, is often cited as the definitive Reba record, you’ll find that her creativity has rarely wavered, even leading into 2015’s Love Somebody. While Heart is certainly a must-listen for any country music fan, the rest of her albums have plenty of story songs into which to dig and learn a life lesson or two. Here, we take a look at Reba’s 10 best story songs ranging from the mid-80s to the modern era.
