Reba McEntire

Reba McEntire has been a leading lady of country music for over twenty years. As a mainstay on country radio, she has become familiar to country audiences beginning with her first number one hit, 1982's Can't Even Get the Blues and continuing unabated through her song Somebody in 2004, a span that saw an impressive body of thirty-three number one songs -- such as You Lie, Somebody Should Leave, Rumor Has It, I'm A Survivor, The Greatest Man I Never Knew and And Still -- twenty-nine albums, numerous awards and performances.

She is the first country female artist since Patsy Cline did so in the 1950s to sell five million copies of a single album, and she has sold more than 49 million albums in her career. McEntire recently released Reba #1's, 35-song compilation of her number one singles. She has collected and impressive array of honors, including fifteen American Music Awards, twelve Academy of Country Music awards, seven Country Music Association Awards and two Grammy Awards.

McEntire is also a multiple-award winner in the world of acting. Her critically acclaimed Broadway debut in 2001's Annie Get Your Gun received both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics awards. Now in its fifth season, her eponymous TV show Reba earned the country diva a Golden Globe nomination and a People's Choice Award.
