I Am Not Done Talking About Reba

I bet some of ya'll have never even heard Reba pre 1992. It is my duty to see to it that all experience the twang that was once Reba and hope against all hope that someday, she'll do another country recording. This is my blog...I can dream can't I? I do love Reba McEntire. This Reba, one name, as in "Liza With A Z", is kinda silly. Reminds me of Sylvia. Oh geez...there's a name from the way back past. Remember "Nobody?"

So, dig, if you will, a circa 1980ish Reba McEntire and notice the fine harmony singing of one Ricky Skaggs (before he had a pot to pee in as well) and then jump ahead to about 1984, just as she started to explode as a superstah from her My Kind of Country album (remember those?).

For the record, like our pal Brittney, I also like "Fancy" a lot (any Bobbie Gentry song is cool) and that "Is There Life Out There" and I loooooove "Rumor Has It".

She Really Sang Country Once: "1. Today All Over Again - Reba McEntire
2. Before I Met You - Reba McEntire"

I was a country disc jockey, with my pal Squirrely over at Squirrels on Snark during the mid '80's.
We remember.

I liked Reba well enough in the beginning, and then I simply couldn't stand her for a while. The last few years I started watching her TV show now and then, and it actually redeemed her a bit in my eyes. She's funny! But her music is still lacking something. There's twang in her voice, but not always in her songs anymore.

I think she's really a funny person and do hear me, that I am not knocking her for her success in all these other things. Who would've thought, at first glance of her back in the 70's, that she'd accomplish all that she has.

I'm just doggin' her music!

Get a grip people, it is not Reba's fault the country music industry has changed. The woman has to make money you know... why put out an album nobody is going to buy, or play on the radio? Country music is not what it used to be, and that is not Reba's fault.
