If you’ve wondered why you don’t often hear the name McEntire mentioned when it comes to a certain redhead, Reba says it all goes back to 1988. That’s when her husband and manager Narvel Blackstock decided she would go the way of one-name artists like Cher and Madonna.
“It’s a lot better when you’re signing autographs,” she jokes with the Sioux City Journal.
This fall, she’ll embody another character with an entirely different last name– Reba Gallagher — in a new sitcom, Malibu Country. Executive producer Kevin Abbott says the show is based largely on Reba and Narvel’s adventures between Nashville and Los Angeles.
Malibu Country starts shooting next week, and premieres in November on ABC.
