Reba McEntire is one of the undisputed queens of modern country music. She's been churning out hits since the late 1980's and she's still going strong. You've probably heard her version of the prostitution classic "Fancy," her amazing duet about a cheating spouse "Does He Love You," or the moving "Somebody." And those are just a few of the favorites on my iPod. Reba has also segued successfully into acting, with roles in films (remember "Tremors"?), Broadway, and a long-running, self-titled sitcom. Simply put, Reba McEntire is an American treasure, a country classic, and just basically amazing.
Reba performs Sunday, August 25, 7:30 p.m. at the Grandstand at the New York State Fair, outside Syracuse. Tickets cost $35-$55. For more information visit nysfair.org.
