Reba McEntire’s IMAX and Opry Adventures
Reba McEntire is headed to the big, big screen, and to one big, big stage. The iconic redhead will journey to Wyoming to film an IMAX documentary on the history of the state, and she's also scheduling her first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry in nearly a decade.
"I've always been a big fan," Reba says of the picturesque western state in an audio blog on her official YouTube channel. "Daddy and Grandpap were contestants at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in Cheyenne, so we were up there an awful lot during my growing up years." Reba's brother Pake competed in Wyoming rodeo events as well.
On May 9, Reba graces the stage of the Grand Ole Opry for a performance that will undoubtedly evoke some precious memories for her.
"The Opry holds a special place in my heart, from family vacations when I was a kid, to the first time I got to play, to the night I was asked to join," says the Oklahoma-born entertainer who made her Opry debut in 1977, and became an official Opry member in 1986.
Reba's four-song set during the early Opry show is sure to include her current single, 'Strange,' from her upcoming album due this summer. Among the other performers welcoming Reba back to the Opry will be Darryl Worley and Hal Ketchum.
