Iconic entertainer Reba McEntire mesmerizes an audience like no other and the mutual adoration continues as Sing It Now: Songs Of Faith & Hope remains perched atop both Billboard Country and Christian/Gospel charts for a second consecutive week. With the double-disc album – her thirteenth summit to No. 1 – Reba maintains the record for the most Top Country Albums No.1s among women and only the second artist to have a chart-topping album in each of the last four decades. Nash Icon Records and Capitol Christian Music Group jointly released the collection of traditional hymns and contemporary tracks, featuring her sisters, mom, Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and The Isaacs. The music video for the lead single “Back To God” has already garnered over 4.8 million views to date.
During her first-ever headline gigs at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, Reba performed for two hours each during the pair of shows last Wednesday (Feb 15th). In between stories stemming from her Oklahoma roots to successful acting roles and milestones throughout her illustrious career, the GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist performed a mix across 35 No.1 hits and the new music with high praise pouring in:
“Some people sing. Other people entertain. More than four decades into her recording career,
Reba McEntire still has the market cornered on both.”
“…we were all reminded of the reason Reba McEntire has sustained a career in Country music
for 41 years—she’s simply the best!”
Nash Country Daily
“…witnessed a master at work.”
“…the audience rose to embrace the legendary entertainer from the pews.”
Wednesday night (Feb 22nd), Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together In Vegas returns as the longest-running country act in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace history.
