As an actress she has starred in several movies and most notably her own show "Reba" from 2001 to 2007. She has released 16 #1 albums, more than any other female country artist.

McEntire grew up in a rodeo family and discovered her passion for music at a young age. Her career took off in 1975 when she was signed by Mercury Records after her performance of the National Anthem at a rodeo event caught the attention of a music executive. McEntire's early music, deeply rooted in traditional country, gradually evolved to include more pop-oriented sounds, showcasing her versatility as an artist. This evolution broadened her appeal and led to widespread commercial success.

Her accolades are numerous and include multiple Grammy Awards, Country Music Association (CMA) Awards, and Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards. Beyond her musical achievements, McEntire has also made a significant impact in other entertainment fields, including television, film, and Broadway, demonstrating her multifaceted talents.

Early Life

Reba McEntire was born in 1955 in Kiowa, Oklahoma, where she got her start performing on the rodeo circuit as a teenager. Reba initially entered Southeastern Oklahoma University with the goal of eventually becoming an elementary school teacher. Outside of school she sang at local venues. One night during her sophomore year she sang the National Anthem at the National Rodeo in Oklahoma City. Thanks to the performance Reba was discovered by country artist Red Steagall who was extremely impressed by her vocal abilities. Red brought Reba to Nashville, Tennessee in 197 where she recorded a demo tape. After hearing the demo tape, Reba was signed to Mercury Records.

She actually went back to school and finished her degree, graduating in December 1976. Just one month later she was back in Nashville recording songs for a future debut album. Her first single was somewhat disappointing, peaking at #88 on the Billboard country chart.

Reba released her self-titled debut solo album in August 1977. It was not commercial success. Her second album, 1979's "Out of a Dream" featured a cover of Patsy Cline's "Sweet Dreams" which was a top 20 hit.

Success

Reba McEntire achieved breakthrough success in the early 80s, crossing over from country to pop with a series of number one singles in the 1980s and 1990s including: "How Blue", "Somebody Should Leave", "New Fool at an Old Game", "I Know How He Feels", "The Heart Won't Lie, "Does He Love You", "Till You Love Me", and "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter". By the mid 1980s, nearly every album Reba released was going multi-platinum. Her 1993 greatest hits compilation album sold more than 5 million copies. As of 2023, McEntire is still active and releasing music.

McEntire has won an unprecedented 90 awards from various sources and been nominated for nearly 200. McEntire was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording in 1998 for Recording at 7018 Hollywood Blvd. In 2006 she was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame.
