    Reba McEntire (Rumor Has It) OC: …for me.  :28
    “The Name of the album is Rumor Has It, and the song itself, ‘Rumor Has It,’ is a great, great song, very slow, very sad, very true-to-life. Unfortunately, a lot of people can relate to this song, and that’s what I‘m always looking for when I’m listening to songs for an album are songs that when people listen to it can go, ‘Ohhhhh, yup. That’s my life. She’s singing it straight for me.”

  • REBA McENTIRE RELEASES 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF HER RUMOR HAS IT ALBUM ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11TH.

    Country superstar Reba McEntire will re-release her iconic RIAA triple-platinum certified album Rumor Has It on Friday (September 11th) in honor of the record’s 30th Anniversary. Originally released in 1990, Rumor Has It features four Top 10 hits including the album title track, “You Lie,” “Fallin’ Out Of Love” and her signature hit, “Fancy.” In addition, the anniversary edition vinyl will include a bonus track, a live acoustic version of “Fancy” recorded at The Ryman, while the CD and digital versions will feature that bonus track as well as a new dance remix of “Fancy.”

    The Oklahoma native went through a lot during the making of the album, but she had some downtime to pick just the right songs. “It was 1990, February of 1990. I had Shelby, so that was in February. I had been on bedrest since December the 6th, so finally had him on the 23rd of February and then we started in on the tour,” says Reba. “But while I was on bedrest, I was listening for songs. They’d bring me a huge box of cassette tapes. I had to stay on my left side all the time and I had my boom box and I would listen to songs all day long. So, I had Shelby, and then we went right into recording with Tony Brow and I had been recording with Jimmy Bowen before that since 1984. Tony and I had been big friends for a long time there at MCA Records, so he started producing me and we had a blast with that. Then we went on tour and it was hard. I was way out of shape. I had to get back into shape quick. I had a brace around my back and my stomach because it was the big staircase I had to walk up and down. A lot of stuff happened, but a lot of great things happened out of that. Number-one, Shelby is 30 years old; ‘Fancy’ is my biggest song of my career; four great singles off this album, so I’m really thrilled that we’re getting to re-release it. Who would’ve thought you would’ve been able to do that?”

  • OPRY MEMBERS VINCE GILL AND REBA McENTIRE PERFORM ON GRAND OLE OPRY’S 4,933rd CONSECUTIVE SATURDAY NIGHT BROADCAST.

    Members of both the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame, Vince Gill and Reba McEntire performed together Saturday during the Opry’s 4,933rd consecutive Saturday night broadcast. Gill was inducted in the Grand Ole Opry on August 10, 1991 and McEntire became a member of the Opry on January 17, 1987.

    “Every time I see you, I feel like I’m home. You’re like family,” shared Gill to his longtime friend McEntire. During their Opry performance the pair exchanged personal experiences of working together over the years and their special bond as fellow Okies. Both artists performed several of their biggest hits including Gill’s “What The Cowgirls Do” and “Whenever You Come Around” as well as “The Price of Regret” in honor of Civil Rights Leader and Congressman Senator John Lewis. Gill also sang “Little Brother,” a song he’d written about his friend of 50 years, Benny Garcia, who passed away in May. McEntire opened with “How Blue,” before adding “Back To God,” and “Is There Life Out There”, closing the night with “Fancy.” Together the Opry members sang their #1 duet “The Heart Won’t Lie,” a song that also made Country music history with its accompanying cinematic military-themed music video.

     

    The two Oklahoma natives met in Nashville in 1988 when Gill sang background vocals on McEntire’s self-titled studio album, Reba. In 1990, the pair recorded their first of many duets, “Oklahoma Swing,” the second single from Gill’s breakthrough album, When I Call Your Name.

    Next Saturday, July 25 EMI Records Nashville’s recording artist and star of NBC’s hit “This Is Us,” Chrissy Metz and multi-Grammy and Dove award winner, Gospel Music Hall of Fame member CeCe Winans as well as one of the most recognizable voices in country music, Tracy Lawrence, will step in the circle for the Grand Ole Opry’s 4,934th consecutive Saturday night broadcast. Metz’s appearance will mark her Grand Ole Opry debut.

    As the Grand Ole Opry approaches its 95th year in the midst of a global pandemic, Opry members and special guest artists have kept the music playing from the unbroken circle and is reaching some of its largest audiences to date. The Opry has been reaching millions of fans and making new ones each week as it has logged viewers from over 100 countries worldwide who have been tuning in just since the live audience shows were paused in mid-March.

    Though Opry shows with a live Opry House audience are paused, the show will be broadcast live on Circle and Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV and other TV affiliates. Opry Live 
    on Circle will be hosted by Bobby Bones. The livestream on Circle All Access and YouTube channel will be guest hosted by Natalie Stovall, a member of the country trio Runaway June and host of Circle’s Southern Weekend. Opry announcer Mike Terry will be heard on 650 AM WSM and SiriusXM.
