The best days are ahead for Sarah Reeves.
The 34-year-old singer/songwriter has officially finished writing, recording and producing her new album Best Days, and its set to drop on Friday, September 22.
“I am very excited [for Best Days]. It’s been a process… even when I was writing the album, I was kind of in a weird place personally. I was searching for the message I wanted get across and the sound I wanted it to be,” Reeves tells Celeb Secrets host Juliet Schroder exclusively in a virtual interview.
“There are heartbreak songs, sad songs, and dance-y songs.. there are even fun ones too,” she continues. “You’re gonna get a lot of different flavors and colors and I love that. I had a lot of fun making it, so I’m very excited to get it out to the world.”

Featuring the title track along with previous releases “Billboards on Sunset,” “Jealousy,” and “Wanna Be Here,” the 16-song project is a personal one for the Curb Records recording artist, as she made it during a “very personal battle” in her life.
“During the process, I was actually really sad and depressed, which they say is always the best time to write music,” she confesses. “There were says where I was doing vocals and I was just sobbing that I couldn’t make it through the cuts. Everyone in the room was sobbing and were like, ‘ok, we can do this.’ It was a very emotional time.”
“I think that actually makes it really special,” she continues. “Hopefully one day I will be able to share those stories along with the music as it comes out.”
“I’m very grateful to have the gift of songwriting and music because that is kind of my therapy. It’s been cool to see how it’s been healing other people as well to hear it,” she concludes.
A standout song on the record is “Get Back Your Fight,” which is about reclaiming who Sarah really is after some recent, massive changes in her life. Prior to its release in March, Reeves teased a clip of it on social media and received incredibly-engaging feedback, adding over 100,000 new followers across her socials.
Reassuring the listener that they are not along in whatever struggle they are dealing with — and that their mental health matters — the song shows Reeves extraordinary talent, further proving that there’s more than just Country music that comes out of Nashville.
