Reba Can Relate To Fans That Act Like They Know Her
Reba McEntire isn’t just a country icon and superstar; she is also aa actor who had her own show (Reba) in the early 2000s. She’s also starred in many roles. And next season, she’s joining NBC’s The Voice, as a coach. She feels that when folks come up to her in public, they feel like they know her, and Reba loves that. She recently told me how she loves when fans approach her. She said, “I like people, and I like to be with people. So, me being a part of their lives makes me understand when people walk up to me as they know me. And they talk to me like we’ve been friends forever.”
She adds that she can relate, “Being in the television business, I’ll see actors [and] I just feel like I know ’em. So, I totally get that; I love that. I love that relationship, and it just makes me feel great that I could connect with them through music or television, a story. And it brings us closer together.”
McEntire will celebrate the release of her upcoming lifestyle book with a one-night-only event, “Not That Fancy: An Evening with Reba & Friends,” set for November 5 at 7:30 pm at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
Reba’s former Reba TV co-star Melissa Peterman will host the event, which will be an evening of stories with Reba. All tickets will include a complimentary copy of Reba’s new book: Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots. Tickets go on sale on Friday (7/14).
Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots is set to release Tuesday, October 10.
Not That Fancy includes over 50 recipes (desserts, meats, sides, and cocktails) from Reba’s family traditions and her restaurant Reba’s Place (Atoka, Oklahoma); never-before-seen photographs and never-before-told stories from Reba’s personal and professional life (ranching with her Daddy, pranks with Brooks & Dunn, falling in love over a plate of tater tots); and simple, not-that-fancy lifestyle tips (how to achieve Reba’s signature hairstyle, design a down-to-earth date night, play a mean game of cards).
