george jones reba tribute concert

The lineup for George Jones‘ Tribute Concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena just got even bigger. In addition to an already packed lineup, it was announced today that George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire and Alabama will also be performing at the November 22nd show.

“I am thrilled and honored that so many of George’s friends are coming to what would have been his last concert, but is not a fitting tribute,” says Nancy Jones. “George loved these artists and before passing had actually wrote letters to almost all of them.”

The new list of performers will join an already star-studded lineup that includes Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, and others. All previously announced artists are currently being reconfirmed.

assets-images-13-08-Reba_CMHOFExhibit

Reba McEntire.

Her name is synonymous with country music and no one is more deserving of the “Queen of Country” title.

Besides being country royalty, Reba is a star in all entertainment genres: television, Broadway, film… she does it all. Not to mention, she’s also a very successful businesswoman.

That being said, it is only fitting that Reba be honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with her very own exhibit!

As you may know, the exhibit opened earlier this month. It is entitled “Reba: All The Women I Am” and displays memorabilia from her iconic life and career. Awards, performance clothes, childhood achievements, personal possessions, photographs, videos, etc… Reba shared it all and it is on display!

The exhibit runs through June 8, 2014. This is something no fan wants to miss!

Congratulations to Reba on this honor and an incomparable career!

Reba’s Malibu Country cancelled

Reba McEntire.

Sad news this weekend for Reba McEntire and “Malibu Country” fans. ABC has announced that they will not air a second season of the comedy, and has cancelled what was once named their highest-rated freshman comedy series of 2012. The series aired 18 episodes on its one and only season on ABC. The show followed the story of Reba’s character, a country singer, who had uprooted her family following her divorce from Nashville to Malibu, California. She was trying to keep her career going while raising two kids.

“Malibu Country” was Reba’s return to television after her show “Reba” had run from 2001 to 2007. “Reba” still gets airtime today on multiple stations, including CMT Canada. The show had guest appearances from stars like Blake Shelton, Laura Bell Bundy, and more. Martina McBride and Kelly Clarkson had both previously expressed their interest in wanting to guest star on the sitcom as well.

ABC will be renewing Nashville, which has become a mega-hit for the station, so country music won’t be completely gone.

Are you sad to see the loss of “Malibu Country”? Did you get the chance to watch it while it was on-air?

Country Music Hall of Fame to Honor Reba

country-music-hall-of-fame-reba

With a career that has successfully spanned music, movies, television, Broadway and more, Reba is truly one of country music’s most acclaimed and decorated women. Due to this unparalleled career, The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will honor Reba with the exhibit Reba: All the Women I Am, which opens in the museum’s East Gallery on August 9, 2013, and runs through June 8, 2014.

According to Museum Director Kyle Young, “Reba is the most successful female country performer of her generation, and a major influence on many of the female recording artists who have followed her. Her achievements and accolades are almost too numerous to mention:  She has sold more than 40 million records, charted nearly 60 Top Ten singles and 24 #1 hits, and been honored with nearly 50 major awards, including two Grammy awards, the Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year award and the Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year award; she is also one of only four entertainers in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress.  And, of course, she was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2011.”

“It’s impossible to overstate Reba’s impact on country music, and her contributions go well beyond recording,” Young continued.  “She heightened production values for country concerts, adding elaborate stages, video screens and multiple costume changes.  Such innovations are now de rigueur on the tours of top country artists.  Furthermore, through her work on Broadway, in film, and as the star of two television comedies, Reba has helped to heighten and expand the profile of country music, lifting all boats in her magnificent wake.  We are looking forward to telling the rich, inspiring and always entertaining story of one of country music’s brightest lights.”

The exhibit, Reba: All the Women I Am, will be accompanied by an ongoing series of programs throughout the exhibit’s duration. For more information, visit

Reba McEntire & Blake Shelton.

The Queen of country music is retiring from hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards. After a report surfaced earlier today, ACM CEO Bob Romero decided to put the rumors to rest and confirm that Reba McEntire will not return to co-host the award show next year.

Stay tuned!”
