We’re huge fans of Reba McEntire’s songs, which is why we love finding out little-known trivia about this country music star’s life. After all, at age 62, she’s had a decades-long career in music and on television, so by now she feels sort of like an old friend. But once we heard these facts, we realized how little we knew about Reba’s private life!
McEntire, who grew up in Oklahoma, has sold over 33.5 million albums during her lengthy time as a country performer. She also had a hit TV show, Reba, which lasted on-air from 2001 to 2006 and made her even more familiar to her fans. Certain details of her life are well known, like the heartbreaking plane crash that claimed the lives of several of her bandmates and her manager back in 1991, and over which she recently revealed she still grieves. We were also ticked to realize that her stepson, Brandon Blackstock, is married to another famous singer: on of our other all-time favorites, Kelly Clarkson.
But her odd connection to Faith Hill came as a shock to us, as did the fact that she almost had a role in the hit film Titanic. We never knew!
