1. Reba McEntire- The Fear of Being Alone
Reba McEntire might be best known to some as a television actress, but her best talent is definitely her singing. In “The Fear of Being Alone” she doesn’t want her man to tell her that he loves her, but instead wait and see if it is more than just not wanting to be alone. The track peaked at the #2 spot on the Hot Country Singles Chart, and can be found on her 1996 album What If It’s You.
