It can’t be true…can it? Re-defining the term ageing gracefully is the one and only Reba McEntire who celebrated her 59th birthday on March 28th. The Oklahoman who got her start singing in her high school band, released her first album in 1977. Reba’s latest release was 2010’s All the Women I Am, her 26th studio album.
She’s been in many films, starred on broadway and earned a Golden Globe nomination for her work on tv, but Reba’s best work has come in music. Reba has won 7 Top Female Vocalist awards at the ACM’s and 12 Favourite Country Female Artist AMA’s, both records. She is also the only female artist to have achieved solo #1 songs across four decades.
Who knew we’d get an early birthday present from the legend herself! Announced earlier this week, Reba will be in Calgary as part of the Virgin Mobile Stampede Concert Series on July 13th!
