Behind the Scene is the sixth studio album by Reba McEntire. It includes the singles "Why Do We Want (What We Know We Can't Have)" and "There Ain't No Future in This", which was a top ten hit. It was her final album for Mercury Records before switching over to Mercury's now-sister label MCA Nashville. McEntire felt the need for change in record labels at the time as an opportunity to gain more independence in the material she recorded.
