It’s no secret that Reba McEntire loves what she does. She always approaches each chapter in her career with her signature drive and dedication, but what may come as a surprise to some is that she says she’s never enjoyed her career more than now.
“I think I’m having more fun now that I did 10, 15 years ago,” Reba tells ACM Tempo in a recent interview. “There are so many new people. To get to see and meet the new people, that’s the fun part! It’s so exciting in country music right now. The veterans are still there, but the newcomers are coming on. It’s just so much fun to see the newcomers coming on, and still be part of it – and I’m grateful that they’re still letting me be part of it.”
And part of it is she ever! With “I Keep On Loving You”, the follow-up single to the longest-running #1 of her career “Consider Me Gone”, quickly headed for the chart’s pinnacle, her latest album being certified Gold, and a wildly successful co-headlining tour with George Strait poised to unveil a fall leg, Reba’s career has never been hotter. This week, Reba will tape an edition of CMT Unplugged at Studio 330.
Reba was selected to represent Country Music as part of MTV Networks’ multi-genre re-launch of their Unplugged series, which will be featured across CMT, MTV and VH1’s multi-media platforms when it premieres in May.
