World-famous musician and actress Reba McEntire said in a recent interview that she credits God for her success in the performing industry. 

Christian Today reports the country star relies on her faith to direct her path.

McEntire told Fox411, "I ask for guidance, I ask the Lord to give me wisdom when I speak, when I think, and I always try to be positive and say nice things and it gives me strength throughout every minute and every day."

The country star’s newest album, entitled “Love Somebody,” was released Tuesday. The single “Pray for Peace” is included in the album, a song that McEntire says was inspired while praying to God.

She said, "It's a song that was started two to three years ago when I was out walking. My front yard is my church and that's where I go out and I talk to God... so 'Pray for Peace' came to my mind and I started praying for peace.

She continued, "A month or two later I'm like, 'Lord, what have you got in mind for me? What's my next project?' And He said, 'I want you to pray for peace.'"
