Formats and Editions


''For My Broken Heart'' is the eighteenth album, released in 1991 by American country music singer Reba McEntire. It was the first album recorded after an airplane crash which killed most of the members of her touring band. The album is, as McEntire states in the album's notes, "a form of healing for all our broken hearts" and the songs were chosen to that effect. The album broke ground for female artists in country music, as it was the first album recorded by a female in country music to be certified double-platinum (selling 2 million copies) by the RIAA.

The album was led off by its title track, which was followed by "Is There Life Out There." "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia", originally a 1972 hit for Vicki Lawrence, was also accompanied by a video when it was released as the album's third single. It became her highest charting album on The Billboard 200 at that time, peaking at #13. It is also one of McEntire's biggest-selling studio album - selling 5 million copies.

The album debuted at #4 for the week of October 19, 1991. It peaked at #3 for the week of November 2, 1991. It stayed at #2 for 7 consecutive weeks. It stayed in the Top Ten for 20 consecutive weeks. - Wikipedia
