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.
