“Powerful, emotive recording artist. Dynamic, charismatic live performer. Acclaimed Broadway star. Successful film and television actress.” So reads a totally accurate description on her website, but I have to add that she’s just so likable and down-to-earth. We’re talking about Reba here.
And where does she put them all? Those awards, I mean. Reba McEntire, 58, has sold over 56 million albums worldwide during four decades. A member of both the Country Music and Hollywood Bowl Halls of Fame, she’s won 13 Academy of Country Music Awards—including its Career Achievement Honor—seven Country Music Association Awards, two Grammys, and is one of only four entertainers in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress.
