Reba McEntire recorded her first song in 1976, when she was just 21.
Her first number one record didn’t come for another decade, but she’s been on a roll ever since, and today is a country music icon.
In 1994, Reba wrote an autobiography, and that;s when I met her.
And yes, it was another one of those times that I was pretty starstruck. But she immediately put me at ease.
And that day, I also brought my 11- and 13-year-old daughters and my wife to meet one of our favorite performers. In fact, at one point in this interview, you’ll hear a brief exchange between Reba and my wife.
And after we listen to the interview, stick around — I have to tell you one of my favorite celebrity stories.
So here now, from 1994, Reba McEntire.
Reba McEntire’s most recent album, “Stronger Than the Truth,: was released last year.
And she recently guest starred on TV’s “Young Sheldon.”
Her own TV show, “Reba,” is still seen in syndication.
