Sharing the track with a dramatic trailer for the soon-to-be-released film, McEntire’s performance features a soaring and emotional vocal, all about overcoming obstacles that seem too big to conquer. It’s a gripping country-pop ballad that helps bring an equally powerful film to life, starring Glenn Close and Mila Kunis.
According to the trailer and reporting by Deadline, Four Good Days follows a 31-year-old woman named Molly (played by Kunis) who has struggled with opioid addiction for more than a decade. Close plays her estranged mother, Deb, and the plot finds Molly and Deb coming together in a last ditch effort to get Molly clean… and the grueling process starts with four good days without drugs.
“I was honored to be asked to sing the theme song for the new Glenn Close and Mila Kunis moving and powerful movie, Four Good Days – in theaters April 30,” McEntire writes on social media. “It was written by the amazing Diane Warren who also wrote my songs “I’ll Be” and “What If.” I’m so proud to be associated with these three very powerful women!”
Like Reba McEntire revealed, “Somehow You Do” was written by acclaimed songsmith Diane Warren. Four Good Days is directed by Rodrigo Garcia and based on a true story from Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post writer Eli Saslow. The film will arrive in theaters April 30, and becomes available on-demand May 21.
