ABC News profiles Reba in ‘Superstar’

Episode airs Dec 8th

Reba McEntire will be profiled by ABC News in the latest installment of their series, Superstar. The episode airs Thursday, December 8th from 10-11 pm ET/PT on ABC and will be available the next day on Hulu.

The star-studded TV event features interviews with artists that know and admire Reba, including Carrie Underwood, Wynonna Judd, Vince Gill, Lainey Wilson, Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Nick Jonas, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Dolly Parton and Kristin Chenoweth.

Reba, who can be seen Wednesdays playing Sunny Barnes in season three of ABC’s Big Sky, is the “Queen of Country.” Known for her red hair and sassy style, McEntire is one of the most successful female recording artists in country music history. From her humble beginnings on an Oklahoma cattle ranch to her rise as one of country music’s most influential stars, this one-hour special explores the experiences, triumphs and losses that made Reba McEntire a household name.

Reba broke barriers and built an entertainment empire by expanding her career to movies, the Broadway stage and television. Rare childhood photos and intimate behind-the-scenes videos reveal her story of grit and determination in a male-dominated industry. The program also sheds light on her marriages, her current relationship with Big Sky co-star Rex Linn, and new details of how she dealt with the tragic plane crash that ended the lives of her tour manager and seven members of her band.

Reba is set to wrap the fall leg of her Reba In Concert arena tour next week in Indianapolis after postponing three dates due to mandated vocal rest earlier this month. She was also forced to postpone her Estero, FL stop due to Hurricane Nicole which will now happen December 10th.

Spring dates have been announced for 2023 which kick off March 9th in Jacksonville and conclude at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, marking Reba’s first time playing the iconic venue. Terri Clark and The Isaacs will support.
