Reba McEntire, full name Reba Nell McEntire (born March 28, 1955, in McAlester, Oklahoma, U.S.), is an American singer and actress who achieved breakthrough success as a television personality.
Reba McEntire grew up on the road between rodeos, as her father was a world-champion steer roper. Reba McEntire created a band with her brothers in the ninth school, aided by her mother’s encouragement of her musical talents on the travels. She had her first major break when she was invited to perform the national anthem during the 1974 National Finals Rodeo.
Her performance wowed country music legend Red Steagall, who assisted Reba McEntire in recording a demo resulting in a contract with Mercury Records. Although neither her first song, “I Don’t Want to Be a One Night Stand” (1976), nor her self-titled first album (1977) gained an immediate audience, she continued recording and finally topped the Billboard country singles list with “Can’t Even Get the Blues” (1982).
Other hits followed, but Reba McEntire yearned for greater professional autonomy and a return to a more classic country music sound. She switched to the MCA label in 1984, began coproducing her records, and had consistent financial success with albums such as Whoever’s in New England (1986). Reba McEntire earned her first Grammy Award for best female country vocal performance for the album’s title tune.
By the end of 1986, she had achieved her eighth number one on the country singles chart. She set a record by winning the best female vocalist at the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards for four straight years (1984–87).
After establishing her musical fame, Reba McEntire ventured into business and acting. Reba McEntire’s empire comprised a talent-management organization, a construction company, a horse farm, and a jet charter service. Her second husband, Narvel Blackstock, also acted as her manager.
Her first picture was the 1990 horror comedy Tremors. In March of the following year, a plane carrying her tour manager and seven band members crashed near San Diego, California, killing everyone on board. Reba McEntire paid tribute to the victims on her 1991 platinum-selling album For My Broken Heart.
Reba McEntire continues to tour and release albums during her acting career, including So Good Together (1999), Room to Breathe (2003), Reba: Duets (2007), and Love Somebody (2015). She released Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope in 2017, which went on to win a Grammy for best roots gospel album. The next year, she was honored by the Kennedy Center. In 2019, she released Stronger Than the Truth, her 33rd studio album. Following it was the box set Revived Remixed Revisited (2021).
Did Reba McEntire Have Plastic Surgery
Reba McEntire is expected to have various cosmetic treatments, including Botox, fillers, a facelift, and breast augmentation.
Reba McEntire is 67, so when people see her, they anticipate seeing droopy cheeks, a face with lines and wrinkles, and eyes with crow’s feet. However, they are always shocked to discover a beautiful lady who appears to be in her 30s. Her youthful appearance has long sparked rumors of cosmetic surgery since no one her age could seem that young.
The absence of wrinkles and crow’s feet on Reba McEntire’s face has led many to believe she has received Botox injections. In addition, the lack of drooping skin on her face and neck has fueled allegations that she has undergone fillers and a facelift. Fans believe the facelift has allowed her to defy gravity and maintain her youthful appearance.
Reba McEntire has been the target of ridicule since reports of her plastic surgery began to circulate. But she has never admitted that she has undergone plastic surgery, even when people are confident they can see it on her face. She denied using Botox in 2009 only once, and that was all.
“I don’t do Botox. I don’t do it. Everyone else may, and I have no objections. I don’t. It is botulism; therefore, I did not want to consume it. If you want to do that, plastic surgery is excellent. Regarding her cosmetic efforts, Reba McEntire concluded her remarks. She attributes her youthful appearance to Pilates and 30 to 60 minutes of daily walking, among other factors.
“Every night, I remove my makeup and cleanse my face. In the morning, I thoroughly cleanse and moisturize my face. I consistently apply sunblock on my face. And use products and cosmetics that allow my skin to breathe as much as possible. I have facials as frequently as possible and consume plenty of water. I also consume fish oils. I use one contact lens. I have monovision, and the fish oil and EPA assist my eyes to retain moisture so that my contact lenses do not become dry.”
And that, she maintains, is Reba McEntire’s beauty secret, not Botox, a facelift, or breast implants. Nobody believes her anymore, and everyone seems to assume she has undergone plastic surgery. There was a report that she once became so obsessed with Botox and facelifts that it threatened her relationship with Rex Linn.
A few years ago, the National Enquirer said Reba McEntire and lover Rex Linn began to dispute after Linn “began imploring the wrinkle-free country queen to stop using Botox.” The publication also noted that she had denied using fillers even though her “fiberglass-like face” indicated otherwise.
