On February 11, 1986, Reba McEntire released her first-ever music video.

Four years after she first hit Number one on the country charts, McEntire dropped her first music video and it was for the song “Whoever’s In New England.”

“Whoever’s In New England” was released as a single on January 27, 1986 and was the titled of her album released later that year.

In May 1986, the single hit number one, and was helped there by the accompanying music video. McEntire won the Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance as well as a number of awards from the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.

The lingering fear the person you love the most can leave you at any moment for someone else can be one of the most agonizing feelings in the world. Telling the heartbreaking tale of a woman’s ultimate fear becoming a reality, McEntire delivered tears with her critically acclaimed “Whoever’s In New England.”

The video for her heart-wrenching country song features an aching Reba at home alone, stricken with anxiety as her husband week after week leaves to Boston “each time duty calls.” When it seems as if all hope is lost for her husband to remain her own, he has a change of heart and leaps back into her waiting arms.

“When whoever’s in New England is through with you/ And Boston finds better things to do,” sings the heartbroken country singer. “You know it’s not too late ’cause you’ll always have a place to go/ When whoever’s in New England’s through with you.”

While McEntire sure can sing about heartbreak – and has experienced it herself – she is in a loving relationship.

McEntire has been dating actor Rex Linn for a couple years now and they are just too cute for words. They have adorable nicknames for each other – he’s Sugar Tot and she’s Tater Tot.
