Reba’s Daddy Passes Away

rebas dad

Please send your thoughts and prayers to Reba McEntire and her family. Reba’s father, Clark McEntire was 86 years old and has been ill for years since suffering a stroke. Reba made the heart breaking announcement on Facebook.

Daddy passed away last night in Coalgate, OK at 11 pm CST. He had been in the nursing home for a while and we’re very thankful he is not suffering anymore. He was a born and bred cowboy through and through. He had been sick for 5 years. It makes total sense to me, he always told us kids never to run your horse to the barn. He was just taking his time to go on home.

Clark leaves behind wife Jacqueline, daughters Reba, Susie and Alice and son Pake.

Reba McEntire Signs New Record Deal and Announces New Music

Reba McEntire

Reba McEntire announced this morning that she is headed back into the recording studio thanks a little push from longtime friend Scott Borchetta.

Reba appeared on America’s Morning Show this morning (10/21) to announce her partnership with Nash Icon Music.

The label is a joint venture between Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group and Cumulus Media. The company, which was announced earlier this year, will produce new music and live events from country music’s most popular artists of the last 25 years. Reba is the label’s inaugural artist.

“I’m feeling very flattered, honored,” Reba said following the announcement. “You get to a point in your career where you think, ‘I’ve been very lucky to get to do what I do, and now it’s everybody else’s turn.’ For them to come back and say, ‘We want you to record again, we want new music.’ That’s pretty big news to me and it made me feel so good that they wanted to hear more of my music. I’m very humbled.”

The album will be Reba’s first new studio album in five years. She’s working with longtime producer Tony Brown and veteran producer James Stroud on the project.

Reba said she’s already recorded 11 songs and that six are completely finished. She doesn’t have an exact date when fans will hear the new songs, but she promises “soon.”

“I’m having a wonderful time in the studio again,” McEntire said. “It’s just a blast. When they came to me with this idea, I was for it 100 percent. I’m sure hoping fans like it. If they don’t, we’ll go back in and cut something else.”

Critically acclaimed Grammy®-winning vocal group Little Big Town (Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook) was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry yesterday evening by Opry member and friend Reba McEntire. The group will be formally inducted into the Opry on Fri., Oct. 17 by Opry member Vince Gill.

As the group finished a three-song set with its smash “Pontoon,” McEntire appeared from the side of the stage, improvising on the song’s last few words. “I know the Grand Ole Opry is very important to y’all, because this is the first place you guys played together as a group in 1999,” McEntire began after the impromptu collaboration. “I have been asked to ask y’all, Little Big Town, would y’all like to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry?”

After hugs with McEntire and between the members as well as a collective “yes” from the group, McEntire said, “Special moments like this—they’re priceless.”

Speaking for the group, Fairchild cheered, “Thank you, Grand Ole Opry! We will try to make you proud!”

Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher said, “We have been enjoying Grand Ole Opry visits from Little Big Town for almost 15 years now. During that time, the group has developed an amazing artistry and has won over millions of fans, all while maintaining a commitment to and love for the Opry we saw firsthand tonight. We will all be excited to officially welcome Little Big Town to the Opry family October 17.”
