Reba McEntire reaches number 1 with “One Promise Too Late” back in August of 1987.

More specifically, August 8th was the day the song finally broke the number one spot on Billboards Country Charts.

Originally written by Dave Loggins, Don Schlitz and Lisa Silver, it served as Reba’s third single from What Am I Gonna Do About You.

One amazing fact about this song is that it was Reba’s 8th number one single, in 1987!

The background of this song includes:

“the story of a woman who meets a man and falls in love, but is already married and refuses to break her promise to the husband who has never been less than good to her, saying that the man came along “one promise too late.”
