The book tops several bestsellers’ list

Reba McEntire’s new lifestyle book Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots, has topped The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists, following its October 10th release. The book, available via Harper Celebrate, features over 50 recipes for desserts, meats, sides, and cocktails from Reba’s own family traditions; exclusive photographs and never-before-told stories of Reba’s personal and professional life—from ranching with her Daddy to pranks with Brooks and Dunn to falling in love over a plate of tater tots; lighthearted lifestyle tips on how to achieve Reba’s signature hairstyle, design a down-to-earth date night, play a mean game of cards, and so much more.

Many of the recipes in the book are featured at Reba’s Place, a combination restaurant, bar, live music venue and retail store constructed in an old Masonic Temple in Atoka, Oklahoma. In September, we stopped by the rural town to visit the facility for the first time where Chef Kurtess Mortensen cooked us some hearty country food and sampled the Red-Headed Rita with Mixologist Laura Johnson.

Additionally, her accompanying album Not That Fancy shot to the No. 1 spot on the Current Country Album chart. Reba teamed up with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb to record stripped-down versions of some of her most iconic songs. The 14-track collection features a brand new single “Seven Minutes In Heaven,” an homage to Reba’s mother.

In celebration, more than 40 farms in 23 states are honoring the country icon with specifically designed corn mazes. While navigating the mazes, guests will look for clues and play an interactive game quizzing them on how much they know about the country music legend. Participants will enjoy photo ops, music and prizes along the way.

Next week, Reba will be featured in a one-night-only special event, Not That Fancy: An Evening with Reba and Friends, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Her Reba co-star and friend Melissa Peterman will host the event which will be an evening of stories with Reba at the Mother Church of Country Music on Sunday, November 5th.

Amidst all the buzz, Reba’s iconic hit “Fancy” – the namesake for the new book and album – surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify.
