"Going Out Like That" was released as the album's first single on January 6, 2015, and it has charted within the top 30 of Country Airplay. McEntire produced the album with Tony Brown, James Stroud, and Doug Sisemore. The album has also been released on LP.

Background[edit]

In October 2014, when it was announced that McEntire had signed with Nash Icon, it was revealed that McEntire had begun working a new album. Eleven tracks had already been produced.[1] When the album's first single "Going Out Like That" debuted on the Hot Country Songs chart, it was said that the album would be released in April 2015.[2] On February 13, 2015, the album's release date, title and track listing were announced.[3] McEntire's wrote on her website, "We've been working on it a long time and we can't wait to hear what you think about it. As you all know, I love looking for songs to record. I've said that many times. Getting to work again with Allison Jones over at Nash Icon Records (part of the Big Machine Label group) was a blast! We listened to thousands of songs to find just the right ones for this album. The album has 12 songs and there will be a Target exclusive version with two extra tracks."[3] The album will also be available on vinyl LP through McEntire's web page. Over 25,000 copies of the album were pre-ordered before the actual release date.

In October 2016, the LP was made available in store at Cracker Barrel locations across the country in special promotion with her new Christmas CD.

Love Somebody debuted at number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, her twelfth number one album on the chart, and number three on the US Billboard 200, selling 62,469 copies in the US.[4] The album has sold 307,800 copies in the US as of March 2018.
