Country superstar Reba McEntire is set to re-launch her Reba: Live special exclusively on YouTube this Friday, July 17th, marking the first time the concert has been available digitally. Filmed in 1994 at the Omaha Civic Center, the recording showcases Reba’s extraordinary showmanship and includes plenty of iconic costume changes as well as her signature humor. The Oklahoma native’s distinctive talent truly comes to life in this hour-long special that includes twelve unique performances. The special will premiere at 7pm CT and Reba will celebrate with fans through a chat on her YouTube channel HERE.
In anticipation, Reba has released a special teaser trailer for the event which can be viewed below.
“This was one of my first big tours with all the dancers and costume changes, and it was my very first network television special,” shares Reba. “It’s so much fun to get to revisit it and share it with my fans all these years later! I hope they enjoy it and I can’t wait to share some stories from the behind the scenes during the chat.”
It was just announced that Reba will join fellow Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill for the Grand Ole Opry’s 4,933rd consecutive Saturday night broadcast on July 18. The performance will be available to watch on Circle TV, wsmonline.com and SiriusXM. Most recently, Reba shared a new music video for her timeless song “What If,” which can be viewed HERE. Written by Diane Warren and originally released in 1997, Reba spoke to NBC’s TODAY as well as Entertainment Tonight (watch HERE) as to why she felt compelled to re-release the song with an updated video as an encouraging message of hope and positivity.
