Reba McEntire released her first solo studio album in 6 years Tuesday (8/18) and it became the most-downloaded country album on iTunes in a matter of hours. By noon CT that day, Keep On Loving You, had also risen to the No. 3 most-downloaded album across all genres.

She stars in a new installment of Invitation Only, premiering tomorrow (8/21) at 8 PM/CT on CMT. The concert shows her performing before a small studio audience at the Grand Ole Opry House’s Studio A, taking questions from fans and revealing candid answers.
