Reba McEntire is one of country music’s biggest stars and one of my personal favorites.
Reba was born in Chockie, Oklahoma on March 28th, 1955. Singing came naturally to her and she would sing with her brother Dale and sister Susie, as the Singing McEntires.
She made her appearance in country music in 1976 with her single, “I Don’t Want to be a One Night Stand.” She recorded at a steady pace, but did not reach her first top 10 album until 1980 with “(You Life Me) Up to Heaven.”
In 1984 she got her first No.1 when “How Blue,” was released.
Reba continued putting out songs and albums, one after the other. She soon became highly interested in doing music videos. In 1986, “Whoever’s In New England,” was her first music video to be made.
In 1987 she sold out Carnegie Hall, she won female vocalist of the year in 1984, 1985, 1986 and 1987. She has also hosted the Country Music award more times than anyone else.
She continued to receive No.1 hits and Top 5’s. In 1986 and in 1993 she was awarded with a Grammy. Reba has also performed on T.V. as a guest appearance, in her own show, in movies and has done voices for animated movies. Music however, will always be her solid ground.
More than 40million copies of Reba’s albums have been bought so far, and the numbers continue to rise.
