Happy Birthday, Reba! [Video]
It was on this day, back in 1955, when Reba McEntire was born in Oklahoma. It was at the age of 5 Reba began to sing–it was in her family band called the “Singing McEntires,” consisting of her and her siblings. It wasn’t until 1976 when she recorded her first single–”I Don’t Want to be a One-Night Stand” that kicked-off her career as not only as a singer, but also as an actress, author and clothing designer. 1977 marked Reba’s first album release, and by 1984 she had produced seven studio albums. In 1986, she became a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and also walked away with her first Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. She made her big-screen debut in 1990 in the movie “Tremors,” starring along side Kevin Bacon, and in 1994, she released her autobiography, “Reba: My Story.”
Fast forward to today, with countless musical awards and nominations, a stint on Broadway, a six-season long successful sitcom, over 30 albums and her own clothing line, Reba has become, not only a household name in country, but one of the most well-known country superstars.
And, in honor of Reba’s birthday, here’s one of her most popular and well-known songs (I know it’s one of my favorites), “Fancy.”
