Country music legend Reba McEntire invited CBS This Morning co-host Norah O’ Donnell to Nashville for a chat about how life growing up on an Oklahoma ranch catapulted to a stardom and lead to receiving a prestigious Kennedy Center Honor. The pair also walked the halls in Reba’s office and reflected on her successful career as a singer, businesswoman, and actress across film, television and Broadway.
“I’ve got lots of help. I’ve got crew members who have been with me since the middle 80s. I mean I love my team….they’re my family,” Reba expressed. “They choked me up with how loyal they are and I hope they know I’m loyal to them, too.”
Watch Reba discuss her upbringing, her love of competition, the tragic plane crash that killed eight of her band members, and her fruitful career below!
“I’ve been married twice, divorced twice. I’ve gone through tragedy in my life losing my band in ’91 and my tour manager. Yes. I’m a survivor,” Reba shared during her interview. She’s 100 percent correct and we can’t wait to see what else is in store for the star.
So far, Reba has amassed 35 No. 1 singles and over 56 million albums sold worldwide, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Grand Ole Opry and Hollywood Bowl member has won 16 ACM Awards, 15 American Music Awards, 9 People’s Choice Awards, 6 CMA Awards, 3 GRAMMY® Awards and a GMA Dove Award. She has also received the Andrea Bocelli Foundation Humanitarian Award, Leadership Music Dale Franklin Award, the Music Biz Chairman’s Award, the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress and membership into the Horatio Alger Association, in addition to other philanthropic and leadership honors.
