How did Reba McEntire become famous?
Reba McEntire’s big break came in 1974, when she was just 19. The budding country star had been performing as part of her family band, The Singing McEntires, at local events and they had even recorded for a small label. When she was asked to sing the national anthem at the 1974 National Finals Rodeo, she was able to gain the attention of country music star Red Steagall. Steagall in turn helped the future country queen to record a demo that directly led to her signing with Mercury Records.
Her first taste of success came with 1982’s “Can’t Even Get the Blues” which topped the Billboard country chart and became her first No. 1 hit. In 1984, frustrated with her career, she signed with MCA Records. Her second MCA album, My Kind of Country was her breakout album, containing two No. 1 Billboard country singles, "How Blue" and "Somebody Should Leave.” This was the start of her becoming one of the biggest country music artists of all time.
McEntire’s success as an actor came in 2001 when she took to the Broadway stage as Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun to rave reviews. The same year, she was offered her own TV series, Reba, which ran for six seasons on the WB, and later, the CW.
