About the Artist
Reba McEntire was born in McAlester, Oklahoma, where her father was
a champion steer roper. When the family would travel to and from Mr. McEntire's competitions, McEntire's mother would teach
the children songs and how to harmonize with each other. Their car singing eventually led to the siblings starting a musical
group called the "Singing McEntires." They would sing at rodeos and local agricultural events. Performing in front of crowds
at these humble events sparked something inside of Reba. She was soon teaching herself how to play guitar and writing her
own songs. McEntire and her siblings even recorded a song that pressed 1,000 copies. Even though McEntire had some success
with her small group, she never imagined that her career would someday span more than three decades and include multiple awards.
she was in college at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, McEntire performed the national anthem at the National Rodeo
in Oklahoma City. She caught the attention of country artist Red Steagall and he agreed to help her launch her career. She
recorded a demo tape and soon landed a record deal with Mercury Records in 1975. Her first single, "I Don't Want to Be a One
Night Stand," wasn't a huge hit, but it still made it to the Billboard country music chart at No. 88. The future country star

"Sweet Dreams." The song made it to No. 19 on the Billboard country chart, and fans began to take notice of McEntire's undeniable

and recorded songs that she believed in. Her intuitive selection paid off. Two of the songs on the album, "How Blue," and
"Somebody Should Leave," became No. 1 hits. Rolling Stone named her one of their Top 5 favorite country artists. That year,
McEntire won the Country Music Association Award for Female Vocalist of the year and her album was certified gold.
the next three decades, the artist became a national treasure, earning prestigious awards and racking up No. 1 hits. And even
