Reba McEntire Staying ‘Gone’ With Biggest Hit Ever
Reba McEntire's latest single, 'Consider Me Gone,' isn't a goner just yet. In fact, with three weeks atop the country charts, the tune is enjoying the longest streak at No. 1 since Taylor Swift's 'Our Song' in 2007. With three weeks at the chart pinnacle, 'Consider Me Gone' is also the biggest hit Reba has scored in her 35-year career -- becoming her 23rd No. 1 single and her first chart-topper since 2004's 'Somebody.'
"I can't think of a better way to start the new year and a new decade!" says Reba, who's getting ready to tour with George Strait this winter. The dynamic duo begin their trek in Baltimore, Md., on Jan. 22, with Lee Ann Womack also on the bill.
Reba will reunite with her self-titled sitcom co-star Melissa Peterman, when she makes a cameo appearance on the season premiere of CMT's 'The Singing Bee,' Jan. 15 (hosted by Peterman). The show tests contestants' knowledge of country song lyrics.
