With a net worth of 95 million dollars, Reba McEntire is an American country music singer, songwriter, producer, and actress who is most known for her work in the music industry. To date, Reba has sold more than 90 million records in the United States alone.
As an actor, she has appeared in various films and television shows, the most notable of which is her show “Reba,” which ran from 2001 until 2007. At this point, she has released 16 number one albums, which is more than any other female country musician in history.
Young Reba McEntire started performing on the rodeo circuit while she was just a teenager in Kiowa, Oklahoma, where she was born in 1955 and raised. Reba originally enrolled at Southeastern Oklahoma University to pursue a career as an elementary school teacher in the future. Outside of school, she performed at various locations in the area.
Her sophomore year, she performed the National Anthem at the National Rodeo in Oklahoma City, where she was a part of the audience. After performing, Reba was found by country singer Red Steagall, who was blown away by her singing ability and decided to record a song with her. Reba was brought to Nashville, Tennessee, by Red in 1977, where she recorded a demo tape for the record label. After hearing the demo tape, Mercury Records signed Reba as a recording artist.
She did return to school and complete her degree, graduating with honors in December 1976. Only a month later, she was back in Nashville, this time to record songs for her upcoming first album. Although her first single was a moderate success, it only reached #88 on the Billboard country chart.
In August 1977, Reba released her self-titled debut solo album, which became a hit. It was a flop on the commercial front. Her second studio album, 1979's “Out of a Dream,” included a cover of Patsy Cline's “Sweet Dreams,” which peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Reba McEntire achieved breakthrough success, crossing over from country to pop music with a series of number-one singles, including “How Blue,” “Somebody Should Leave,” “New Fool at an Old Game,” “I Know How He Feels,” “The Heart Won't Lie,” “Does He Love You,” “Till You Love Me,” and “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter.” When Reba began releasing albums in the mid-1980s, practically every one of them went multi-platinum. Her best hits compilation album, released in 1993, sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.
McEntire has received an unparalleled total of 90 honors from a variety of sources and has been nominated for approximately 200 other awards. In 1998, McEntire was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard, where she recorded her first album. In 2006, she was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame, which is located in downtown Nashville.
Reba began her acting career in 1990 when she decided to dip her toes into the world of show business. She would go on to appear in several films, Broadway productions, and television programs during her career. She made her feature film debut in the 1990 film “Tremors,” and went on to star in the Broadway production of “Annie Get Your Gun” the following year.
The WB network broadcasted Reba's self-titled television series, which premiered in October 2001. A total of 127 episodes were shown on The CW throughout six seasons before the show was canceled in February 2007. For her performance in a television series–musical or comedy–Reba was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series.
Reba's personal life includes two marriages and two divorces. Her first marriage, to steer wrestling champion Charlie Battles, lasted from 1976 to 1987, and was the mother of her two children. Reba Blackstock tied the knot with her manager Narvel Blackstock in 1989.
They separated in 2015 and divorced the following year. Reba became the stepmother to Narvel's three children, Chassida, Shawna, and Brandon, as a result of her marriage to him. In 2013, Brandon Blackstock tied the knot with singer Kelly Clarkson. Reba and Narvel were the parents of a son named Shelby Blackstock, who was born to them.

In 2003, Reba and Narvel spent $9 million to purchase a 2-acre parcel of land in Beverly Hills, California. Around the time of their divorce in 2015, they sold the property, which includes a mansion with 9,000 square feet, for $22.5 million. They had purchased the property in 2007. They also owned an 80-acre farm in Gallatin, Tennessee, about 30 minutes northeast of Nashville, which they named Starstruck Farm.
Among the many amenities are a 12,800 square-foot waterfront mansion, a big swimming pool, and pool house, as well as equestrian facilities and tennis courts. In September 2016, they put the house on the market for 7.9 million dollars. It was on the market for more than a year before being sold to a developer for $5 million in July 2017.
McEntire is a successful businesswoman as well. The year 1988 marked the 20th anniversary of her divorce from Narvel Blackstock, with whom she founded Starstruck Entertainment.
Later, at Dillard's, McEntire established a popular clothes, footwear, luggage, and home decor collection, which was immediately successful.
