Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Reba McEntire have announced “Rockin’ R By Reba,” the singer’s new retail line available exclusively at Cracker Barrel stores nationwide and online at crackerbarrel.com on Thursday, August 4th. This is the first product partnership between the country star and Cracker Barrel.
“Rockin’ R by Reba” features specialty items designed by the singer and inspired by her life and interests, including western-themed jewelry, Aztec-inspired ponchos and shawls, dinnerware, and leather bound home goods. The collection also showcases toys and playsets, must-haves for the line according to McEntire who wanted items her grandchildren could enjoy, such as a karaoke microphone and children’s toy guitar.
Each detailed piece of “Rockin’ R By Reba” embodies McEntire’s casual, ranch-country lifestyle and is modeled after the same warm, family-oriented experience that is so important to both Reba and Cracker Barrel. From the home décor highlighting the singer’s popular quotes, such as “To succeed in life you need 3 things: a wish bone, a back bone and a funny bone,” to the Chestnut rocking chair, an iconic Cracker Barrel staple, each piece tells a story about the singer’s Oklahoma roots and upbringing.
“It was a pleasure working with the Cracker Barrel team to design the products, and I appreciate all of the attention to detail that went into creating these beautiful items,” said McEntire. “The line is very personal to me – from the lamp with a tooled leather shade inspired by my Daddy’s saddle to the carved Bible box that reminds me of my grandmother and her faith. I hope that you see the personal touches in every single item.”
A frequent Cracker Barrel guest during her travels, McEntire states the partnership was a natural fit and “immediately said yes” to the opportunity. The collection has over 60 items and retails from $3.99 to $199.99.
“This collection is distinctly different than anything Reba has done before, which made bringing the assortment to life a real joy for our team,” said Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s Senior Vice President of Retail Laura Daily. “In working together, she would tell us about activities her family enjoys or items they like around their home, which inspired the collection.”
“One reason we were drawn to the partnership is because Reba has such wonderful cross-generational appeal – from children to young adults to seniors – that was such a natural fit with our diverse guest base,” Daily continued. “With over four decades of relevancy, we’re thrilled to bring Reba’s new line to her fans and our guests nationwide.”
Additionally, an exclusive Reba McEntire album titled My Kind of Christmas will be released on CD in Cracker Barrel stores and online at crackerbarrel.com September 2nd, which will feature 11 tracks of classic holiday hits. The album is unique with just Reba and piano accompaniment.
