Reba Nell McEntire is a country music singer who has won numerous awards and accolades, thanks to her impressive voice and talent. Born to a mother who loved music, Reba was taught music and singing from a young age. Naturally inclined towards music, the young girl taught herself to play the guitar. Along with her siblings, she formed a vocal group called the ‘Singing McEntires’ which performed at rodeos. Her life took a turn for the better when her performance of the National Anthem at the National Rodeo got noticed by country artist Red Steagall who helped her sign a contract with a major record label. Her initial years in the music industry were fraught with failures and success eluded her for a long time. Undaunted, the feisty singer worked on her voice and improved her style. Subsequently, she came up with her album ‘My Kind of Country’ which helped establish her singing career by spawning two No.1 singles, ‘How Blue’ and ‘Somebody Should Leave.’ The success of this album prompted her to release several more albums and singles that went on to become super hits and cemented her position as the reigning queen of country music. Eventually, she tried her hand at acting with a role in the horror comedy ‘Tremors.’ She then went on to appear in several television movies.
