Reba McEntire's 2001 hit, "I'm a Survivor," shares a message of resilience, with lyrics describing "a single mom who works too hard / Who loves her kids and never stops / With gentle hands and the heart of a fighter / I'm a survivor."
Whether that means throwing out expired milk, enjoying a drive-thru fast food meal even though it only came with a single ketchup packet, or waiting an extra few minutes for dinner at the end of a long work day, no struggle is too small to get the "I'm a Survivor" treatment. And Reba herself got in on the fun.
"I'm a Survivor" was a top-five country hit for Reba upon its release, and it also became the theme song for Reba, the singer's own sitcom, which aired on The WB in the mid-2000s.
