Reba McEntire’s St. Louis concert will be pretty personal to the country music legend. It’s close to the 20th anniversary of the tragic plane crash that killed her touring band, with several of those musicians from the area. Terry Jackson, Kirk Cappello and Tony Saputo were among the crew and band members who were lost in the accident. In an interview with St Louis Today, Reba admits she remembers them every time she steps on-stage and realizes that every day could be your last.

“Every time I get on stage, I do reflect about that. It’s something you never forget. There’s always that feeling on stage that they’re there with me, and I miss my guys and girls so much. We miss all of them. It pulls at your heartstrings, and my heart still goes out to their families. During this 20th anniversary, we have to remember how great they were, what they taught us, and that you have to remember each day could be your last.”
