Reba released her new song and video, “Pray for Peace,” Monday, and several other country stars got in on the act. The Band Perry posted a video of themselves doing the “Pray for Peace” hand motions, and Keith Urban enlisted his famous wife, Nicole Kidman, and their two kids to make a video as well.
Reba got the idea to write the anthem last year while walking around her home in Gallatin, Tennessee, just outside Nashville. She says, “For days I’d sing, ‘Pray for Peace,’ over and over. It wasn’t until several months later did the other parts start to fall in place. Some, not until we got into the studio to record it.”
The country superstar considers “Pray for Peace” to be a gift from God.
“I have never worked on a song as long as this one,” Reba adds. “It went from a bass drum, fiddle and singers to guest artist singing with me, adding more instruments and even a choir and a bagpipe! It’s an act of perseverance, prayer, hope, fellowship and mostly love.”
Ronnie Dunn, Kelly Clarkson and newcomer Caroline Kole lend their voices to “Pray for Peace” as well. You can download it for free at Reba.com.
