Reba McEntire has many talents. Of course, she is an incredible country singer, but she’s also an actress who had her own show called Reba in the early 2000s and most recently played the villainess in ABC’s drama Big Sky.
Reba’s career started in the mid-’70s when she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City. One of the attendees was songwriter Red Steagall who helped get her country music career going and, of course, since then, she’s won a plethora of awards. Let’s take a walk down memory lane to see fun photos of Reba in each decade, starting with the ’70s when her career began:
