"And Still" is a song written by Liz Hengber and Tommy Lee James, and recorded by American country music artist Reba McEntire. It was released in May 1995 as the fifth and final single from her album Read My Mind. The song reached #2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in August 1995.[1]

The song debuted at #58 on the Hot Country Singles chart for the week of May 27, 1995 and peaked at #2 for the week of August 5, 1995.

Music Video[edit]

The video for the song was released in July 1995, and was Reba's final video to be directed by Jack Cole. It was filmed over 3 days in Guatemala City, Guatemala. It starts with an image of a city tour bus, with a subtitle reading "Somewhere in Central America." Reba is then shown as a passenger on the bus, and while the bus tours through a village, she spots a man on the streets. She instantly falls for him, but it turns out that when they are dining at a restaurant, his actual wife and daughter show up, leaving Reba heartbroken. She then climbs a set of stairs to a temple and sighs in disbelief while a bonfire is taking place below her. Finally, it shows the man and his wife in a plane flying away; the man puts his hand in his wife's hand as three natives watch before walking away. Scenes also feature Reba performing the song beside a piano in a classroom full of children, as well as flashbacks of her and the man (shown in blue-grey tone). During the first chorus, one child replies "The Doctor!...The Doctor is Coming" from the back of a truck in the Guatemalan language (hence the subtitle during that scene.)
