Reba McEntire Joins MasterClass

The online education platform MasterClass announced today that one of the most acclaimed entertainers of all time, Reba McEntire, will be joining its roster of instructors to teach her MasterClass on Country music. Pre-enrollment for the class opens today at

McEntire reigns as one of the most successful female recording artists in history with over 56 million albums sold worldwide. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member has won 15 American Music Awards, 13 ACM Awards, 9 People’s Choice Awards, 7 CMA Awards, 2 GRAMMY Awards, in addition to an ACM Career Achievement Honor and the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress. In her first ever online class, she breaks down one of her greatest hits, “Fancy,” and shares what it takes to create a sustainable career in country music. McEntire’s MasterClass covers storytelling, connecting to an audience, singing, performance, vocal warm up, song selection, brand building, and the business side of the industry.

“I love to learn from other people so working with MasterClass, being able to share some of the lessons I’ve been taught is exciting!” said McEntire. “For the first time, I’m getting to offer up what I believe makes a killer song, my vocal techniques and some tidbits I’ve experienced throughout my career. Country music is relatable music. It’s all about how people live, day in and day out … it’s their life stories. I hope that my MasterClass encourages people along in their own adventure in music.”

The multi-media mogul and mom has become a household name across not only music, but television, film, theater and retail. McEntire is an acclaimed actress with 11 movie credits to her name, landed a lead role on Broadway in Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun as well as starred in the six-season television sitcom Reba. The Oklahoma native, who was recently named Nashville Business Journal’s Artist of the Year, launched her own clothing line and the lifestyle brand with Dillard’s over a decade ago and last year debuted a cosmetic line, Reba Beauty.

MasterClass was created to give anyone the ability to gain the wisdom and knowledge of the world’s best creators. The current roster of courses includes Christina Aguilera (singing), Kevin Spacey (acting), Usher (performance), Serena Williams (tennis), James Patterson (writing), Dustin Hoffman (acting), Aaron Sorkin (screenwriting) and Werner Herzog (filmmaking).

Through the MasterClass platform, instructors create engaging online classes with interactive assignments, course materials, student community, and Q&A that creates a uniquely powerful educational experience. All classes are available online for individual purchase at for $90 each.

Cracker Barrel Announces ‘Rockin’ by Reba’

rockin by reba

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and Reba McEntire today announced “Rockin’ R By Reba,” the singer’s new retail line available exclusively at Cracker Barrel stores nationwide and online at on Thursday, August 4, 2016. This is the first product partnership between the country star and Cracker Barrel.

“Rockin’ R by Reba” features specialty items designed by the singer and inspired by her life and interests, including western-themed jewelry, Aztec-inspired ponchos and shawls, dinnerware, and leather bound home goods. The collection also showcases toys and playsets, must-haves for the line according to McEntire who wanted items her grandchildren could enjoy, such as a karaoke microphone and children’s toy guitar.

Each detailed piece of “Rockin’ R By Reba” embodies McEntire’s casual, ranch-country lifestyle and is modeled after the same warm, family-oriented experience that is so important to both Reba and Cracker Barrel. From the home décor highlighting the singer’s popular quotes, such as “To succeed in life you need 3 things: a wish bone, a back bone and a funny bone,” to the Chestnut rocking chair, an iconic Cracker Barrel staple, each piece tells a story about the singer’s Oklahoma roots and upbringing.

“It was a pleasure working with the Cracker Barrel team to design the products, and I appreciate all of the attention to detail that went into creating these beautiful items,” said McEntire. “The line is very personal to me – from the lamp with a tooled leather shade inspired by my Daddy’s saddle to the carved Bible box that reminds me of my grandmother and her faith. I hope that you see the personal touches in every single item.”

A frequent Cracker Barrel guest during her travels, McEntire states the partnership was a natural fit and “immediately said yes” to the opportunity. The collection has over 60 items and retails from $3.99 to $199.99.

“This collection is distinctly different than anything Reba has done before, which made bringing the assortment to life a real joy for our team,” said Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s Senior Vice President of Retail Laura Daily. “In working together, she would tell us about activities her family enjoys or items they like around their home, which inspired the collection.”

“One reason we were drawn to the partnership is because Reba has such wonderful cross-generational appeal – from children to young adults to seniors – that was such a natural fit with our diverse guest base,” Daily continued. “With over four decades of relevancy, we’re thrilled to bring Reba’s new line to her fans and our guests nationwide.”
