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. But that’s hardly the only place you can find the iconic redhead. 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

Reba McEntire Still Has the Drive

It was a good 30 years ago that Reba McEntire picked up her first Top 10 hit, “(You Lift Me) Up To Heaven.” Since that time, she’s watched scores of country stars come and go, but kept her own spot among the elite performers in the genre. At the time she had that first hit, the biggest star in country music was Kenny Rogers, and even now, Reba remembers how much the Gambler was driven to stay at the top. Read More

Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Sugarland on Their Latest

With fall looming, country stars are lining up with dates for new albums and with some brand new singles. Among the acts with new songs in release are Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney and Sugarland, each of whom put out a new single in the last three weeks. Reba’s “Turn On The Radio” comes from an album due in November — her first with in-demand producer Dann Huff, known for his work with Keith Urban and Rascal Flatts. Kenny’s new song, “The Boys Of Fall,” embraces high-school football, and it landed in country’s Top 15 in just its second week on the charts. And Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue” was written with two other people, including a member of the rock band Better Than Ezra. Here’s what they’re saying about their new music: Read More
