Reba McEntire Co-Hosts Top 20

Reba McEntire is making an impact in all sorts of locations these days, and she’ll join Nan Kelley this weekend to co-host the latest edition of GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown. Fans who bought tickets to last Tuesday’s We’re All For The Hall concert in Nashville got a chance to see Reba honored by Martina McBride, who did a version of one of Reba’s biggest hits, “Is There Life Out There,” with Vince Gill and Keith Urban on guitar and backing vocals.

She was a surprise guest on Brooks & Dunn’s very last concert in September, and she’s been tapped to host a Grammy Salute to Loretta Lynn in Nashville on Oct. 12. Reba is an appropriate host for that event, since she’s singing “If You’re Not Gone Too Long” on the album Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute To Loretta Lynn, set for release Nov. 9. That same day, Reba’s own album, All The Women I Am, will also hit the streets. It includes her current hit, “Turn On The Radio,” the No. 10 video on this week’s Top 20. Read More
