Reba McEntire is among the most popular faces in the country music genre. Reba’s career spans nearly 46 years now and this queen of country music is still producing bangers for us. She was born on March 28, 1988, to parents Jacqueline and Clark Vincent McEntire. Her father was a world champion steer roper (a form of rodeo) and while traveling on his tours, Reba learned singing from her mom. Eventually, Reba formed a band with her siblings called the Singing McEntires. She even taught herself to play the guitar. While still a sophomore in college, Reba was scouted by country artist Red Steagall. He was impressed by her vocals when she was performing the national anthem at an event. Reba subsequently signed with Mercury Records in 1975. Her first single I Don’t Want To Be A One Night Stand released in 1976.
Reba then went on to make many singles under Mercury Records. Her first debut album named Reba McEntire released on August 15, 1977, but it didn’t receive much commercial success. So to speak, Reba didn’t have top chart songs until 1983. Can’t Even Get The Blues topped the Billboards that year, making it her first album to do so. But Reba left Mercury Records that year because she was disappointed with their production style. She joined MCA Nashville Records in 1984 and produced many chart-topping albums and singles. A plane crash in 1991 which killed many of her band members left Reba devastated. She released her 16th album For My Broken Heart as a dedication to them and it received much love from her fans. After 25 long years with MCA, she departed from it in 2008 and joined Valory Music Group.

She didn’t have any children with him, although Charlie had two children from his previous marriage. The couple had been married for nearly 10 years before they separated in 1987. Then in 1989, Reba married the steel guitar player Narvel Blackstock. Narvel became her manager and with him, she opened a talent management firm. Reba also started her acting career in 1990, debuting in the film Tremors. Blackstock had 3 children from his previous marriage and Reba had her only child, Shelby, with him. When everything seemed to be going all too smooth between the couple, Blackstock filed for divorce in 2015. Although now separated, Reba maintains a good relationship with the Blackstock’s. She even considers their children as her grandchildren.
Reba then took some time for herself and focused more on her career. Later in 2017, she came out to the public about her dating the wildlife photographer Anthony Lasuzzo.
