Reba McEntire Exhibit to Open at Country Music Hall of Fame
Country superstar Reba McEntire is one of the most successful female performers in country music history. Her long and varied career will be celebrated in an upcoming exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville titled ‘Reba: All the Woman I Am.’
McEntire rose to fame in the ’70s and ’80s with a string of hits including ‘Whoever’s in New England,’ ‘Somebody Should Leave’ and ‘The Last One to Know.’ She continued her winning streak in the ’90s with even more hits including ‘Is There Life Out There,’ and also took up acting, appearing in 10 movies and on Broadway. She starred in her own TV comedy, ‘Reba’ from 2001-2007, and currently stars in ‘Malibu Country.’ Her most recent album, ‘All the Woman I Am,’ scored the No. 1 hit ‘Turn on the Radio.’
“Reba is the most successful female country performer of her generation, and a major influence on many of the female recording artists who have followed her,” Kyle Young, Museum Director at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, says in a press release. “Her achievements and accolades are almost too numerous to mention … we are looking forward to telling the rich, inspiring and always entertaining story of one of country music’s brightest lights.”
‘Reba: All the Woman I Am’ is scheduled to open on August 9, 2013, and run through June 8, 2014.
