 Reba McEntire Biography

Reba McEntire got her break singing the national anthem at the 1974 rodeo finals. McEntire has recorded with Mercury and MCA records, topped the country charts numerous times and has been named best female vocalist by the Country Music Association multiple times. She has also acted in films and starred on her own sitcom.

In 1974, McEntire caught a break when country music star Red Steagall heard her sing at the National Finals Rodeo. Throughout the late 1970s, the soon-to-be "Queen of Country" spent several hours in the recording studio, creating and releasing singles. While none of her early songs were major hits, chart success was just around the corner. In 1980, "You Lift Me Up (To Heaven)" cracked the Billboard country Top 10, ultimately launching an illustrious career.

Throughout the 1980s, McEntire stuck close to her roots in terms of persona, capitalizing on the rowdy rodeo girl theme in photos and on stage. As her powerful vocal stylings matured, her image changed as well, from rough-edged and rural to more polished and mainstream.

Though Whoever's in New England was McEntire's ninth studio album, it was her first to garner a Grammy Award (best female country vocal performance, for the album's first-released single, "Whoever's in New England"). By all accounts, the success of the album was a product of its unique sound. A blend of McEntire's more traditional twangy style with a more mainstream pop sound appealed to a wide audience, cementing the artist's place as country royalty for years to come.

Always a strong businesswoman, the singer understood early on the importance music videos would have for her career. Her first video, for the single "Whoever's in New England," artfully told the story of a suburban housewife tortured by the idea of her philandering husband and his trips up north to visit a mistress. Employing well-known actors and directors, the singer took full advantage of this visual medium to showcase the strong narratives of her songwriting, using videos to tell full and compelling stories. In the future, her penchant for drama would not only drive record sales, it would fuel an unexpected acting career.

Also in 1986, McEntire released the album What Am I Gonna Do About You, and she was named both "Female Vocalist of the Year" and "Entertainer of the Year" by the Country Music Association. Additionally, the singer was named best female vocalist by the CMA for four consecutive years, from 1984 to '87.

In 1990, she released Rumor Has It, an album that eventually sold 3 million copies, going triple platinum by 1999. After a plane crash that killed her bandmates, a bleak but immensely popular album was released, For My Broken Heart, which McEntire dedicated to her deceased friends. In the late 1990s, she recorded duets with Brooks & Dunn and Linda Davis, which were fan favorites.

Adding even more to her plate, the singer successfully made the crossover from music to film. Taking quickly to her second career, she would go on to act in the film "Tremors." In 2001, the WB Network launched a TV sitcom called "Reba." The show ran for six seasons and garnered McEntire a Golden Globe Award.

Over the past several decades, McEntire has continued to reign as the "Queen of Country," collaborating with other country music hitmakers like Kenny Chesney, Trisha Yearwood and Leann Rimes.

In 2003, McEntire released the album Room to Breathe, which went on to earn U.S. platinum status. Reba: Duets followed, also going platinum in the U.S. Two years later, the singer released Keep On Loving You, her first project to go gold in the U.S. since 1986's What Am I Gonna Do About You. That same year, McEntire broke a CMA record, surpassing Dolly Parton as the most nominated female artist in the 43-year history of the CMA Awards.

McEntire's Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit titled "Reba: All the Women I Am" was opened in 2013.
