Reba McEntire

Reba McEntire credits her love of singing to her mother Jacqueline, who taught the future country star and her siblings to sing harmony together. As children, McEntire and two of her three siblings formed the Singing McEntires; they sang at rodeos and even released a song, “The Ballad of John McEntire,” on an indie label. A champion barrel racer at rodeos — her father Clark was a world champion steer roper — McEntire attended college for elementary education and may have become a teacher, if not for a chance encounter with country artist Red Steagall, who heard her sing the National Anthem at a rodeo and encouraged her to move to Nashville and pursue a career in country music instead. McEntire’s self-titled debut album was released on Mercury Records in 1977, but it wasn’t until her fourth single, “Sweet Dreams,” from her sophomore ‘Out of a Dream’ album, that McEntire entered the Top 20. She has released more than 40 albums and had 25 No. 1 songs; she’s also the only country female solo act to have a No. 1 hit in four straight decades. In 2014, McEntire was the first artist signed to the brand-new Nash Icon label. McEntire is also a seasoned actress: She starred in her own WB sitcom, ‘Reba’, in the 2000s, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination, and she appeared on Broadway in ‘Annie Get Your Gun’, as Annie Oakley, in 2001, among other projects.
