It's Your Call is the nineteenth album, released in December 1992 by Reba McEntire. It contained the song "The Heart Won't Lie", which featured Vince Gill and which was later ranked at #18 on CMT's list of the 100 Greatest Country Duets. It also features a re-recording of the song "Baby's Gone Blues", which was recorded in 1987 by Patty Loveless for her album If My Heart Had Windows.

The album peaked at #1 on the country album chart and #8 on the Billboard 200,selling 124,000 copies in its first week, becoming her first top 10 album on that chart. It is certified 3× Multi-platinum by the RIAA.[3]

McEntire referred to the album as a "second chapter to For My Broken Heart" (her previous album, released in 1991).[4]
