Oklahoma Girl is the twenty-first album, a double-disc 40-track retrospective of Reba McEntire's early years on Mercury Records. The tracks included are primarily minor hits released before she became a superstar in the 1980s and 1990s on MCA Records. No new material was recorded for this compilation, although seven previously unreleased songs from McEntire were found on the compilation. This compilation features all her Mercury singles except "Glad I Waited Just for You" and "I've Waited All My Life for You" which did not make the album.
