Reba McEntire is a country singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. She began her career in the music industry as a high school student singing in the Kiowa High School band, on local radio shows with her siblings, and at rodeos.
While a sophomore in college at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, she performed the National Anthem at the National Rodeo in Oklahoma City and caught the attention of country artist Red Steagall who brought her to Nashville, Tennessee.
She signed a contract with Mercury Records a year later in 1975. She released her first solo album in 1977 and released five additional studio albums under the label until 1983. Signing with MCA Nashville Records, McEntire took creative control over her second MCA album, My Kind of Country (1984), which had a more traditional country sound and produced two #1 singles: "How Blue" and "Somebody Should Leave".
The album brought her breakthrough success, bringing her a series of successful albums and #1 singles in the 1980s and 1990s. McEntire has since released over 25 studio albums, acquired over 40 #1 singles, and over 15 #1 albums.
She often is referred to as "The Queen of Country," and she is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide. In the early 1990s, McEntire branched into film starting with 1990's Tremors.
She has since starred in the Broadway revival of "Annie Get Your Gun" (2001) and in her television sitcom "Reba" (2001–2007), for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series -- Musical or Comedy.
In 2019, her album, Stronger than the Truth, was nominated for the Grammy for Best Country Album in the 62nd Grammy Awards.
