Reba McEntire is a country music legend who has millions of fans all over the world. She began gathering her loyal following with her beautiful 1975 album, but she just revealed in an interview that this album almost didn’t happen.
In the spring of 1975, Reba was headed to Nashville with her mother after she was discovered into Oklahoma City. Overcome with nerves, Reba almost turned the car around, but then her mother said something that stopped her…
Here’s what happened, according to Q Political:
“I kept wanting to stop, everywhere you can stop. I don’t care if it was to get something to drink, use the bathroom, let’s go eat, and momma finally said, ‘If you don’t want to go to Nashville and do this I totally understand. We’ll turn around and go home.’ She said, ‘But if you do this I’ll be living all my dream through you.’ I said, ‘Well why didn’t you say that in the first place. Let’s go, get in the car.’ Because it meant more to me to do it for her then it did for me. And so all this time you know I share it with momma.”
Thank God Reba’s mother stopped her!
