Reba McEntire Returns To The Grand Ole Opry May 9th
Superstar entertainer Reba McEntire is set to return to the Grand Ole Opry stage on Saturday, May 9th.
The performance will mark Reba’s first Opry appearance since starring on Broadway in Annie Get Your Gun -- which garnered her both an Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Award -- as well as starring for six seasons in her top-rated CW sitcom, Reba -- for which she earned a Prism Award, Family Television Award and People’s Choice Award for her acting chops.
On May 9th, fans will be treated to a four-song set from the country music icon during a bonus 9:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. segment of the Opry’s 7:00 p.m. show. Tickets to the show are available at opry.com and 615-871-OPRY.
Reba says, “The Opry holds a special place in my heart -- from family vacations when I was a kid, to the first time I got to play, to the night I was asked to join. I can’t wait to take the stage and see all of my Opry family and friends!”
In addition, Reba’s new single “Strange” soared into the Top 25 this week on the Billboard Top Country Songs Chart, resting at #23.
The sassy, tongue-in-cheek rocker, from her late-summer Valory Music Co. debut, is the fastest-rising solo single of her 33-year career of charting songs on Billboard’s Top Country Songs Chart. The single – from her first solo studio album in six years - also rose to #26 on the USA Today/ Country Aircheck chart (powered by Mediabase).
The superstar entertainer signed with The Valory Music Co. in November 2008. The move reunited the multimedia entertainer with industry leader Scott Borchetta, now President & CEO of Big Machine Records and sister label The Valory Music Co.
One of the most successful female recording artists in history, Reba has sold over 55 million albums worldwide and her last 13 studio albums have all achieved platinum-plus status.
