Overview

Don Cusic takes us from Reba's beginnings on the Oklahoma rodeo circuit as the daughter of a world-champion steer-wrestler, to Nashville and a remarriage, to the birth of her son Shelby, while maintaining her superstar status. An unabashed symbol of femininity and rich talent, she has been adored by the press and fans, tossed from the cattle calls of Nashville to the glittering lights of Hollywood and back, and she can still ride a mean barrel race. No wonder they call her Country Music's Queen.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Country singer Reba McEntire's first big break came when she was asked to sing the national anthem at the 1974 National Rodeo Finals in Oklahoma City. Cusic ( Randy Travis , St. Martin's, 1990) recounts how her career subsequently took off like a barrel race. The ten-year span of 1975-85 culminated in a Country Music Association's Top Female Vocalist of the Year award. Since then she has clicked off accomplishments right and left: three additional Top Female Vocalist awards, a Grammy, and an appearance at Carnegie Hall for which she received a five-minute ovation. Cusic includes background tidbits from McEntire's childhood, her rodeo performances during high school and college, and her experience with the country music publishing business. Recommended for country music collections.-- Kathleen Sparkman, Baylor Univ., Waco, Tex.
