    "Alexa, what were the top song lyric requests of 2017?"

According to published reports, Brett Eldredge’s “Somethin’ I’m Good At” is tops when […]

    Reba returns to the National Finals Rodeo, where her career got started

    Reba McEntire will go back to her beginnings on Thursday, as she sings “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

It was Reba’s rendition of the national anthem at the 1974 National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City that set the wheels in motion for the Country Music Hall-of-Famer to land her first recording contract. You can watch for Reba’s performance […]

Authorities identified the 74-year-old driver as Donald Hendricks and the student as Megan Klindt, 16. They failed to escape the vehicle and died inside, according to officials. “[The bus] was backing out of the driveway, and ended up […]
