Country singer Reba McEntire recounts her Oklahoma roots, her early years in show business, and the triumphs and tragedies of her career in her autobiography, REBA. McEntire has a charming personality, and her story is packed with incidents that in the hands of a more sophisticated storyteller would seem contrived; however, her naïve charm is such that simply told tales of childhood mishaps and later incidents during her musical career possess their own unique appeal. Perhaps McEntire's darkest hour comes when a 1991 plane crash takes the lives of eight of her band members; a close call the next year revives memories of the tragedy, though, in an ironic twist, the first album she releases after the crash, FOR MY BROKEN HEART, dedicated to those who were killed, is one of her greatest successes. McEntire's feisty, warm personality is apparent throughout REBA, as is her simple religious faith and her love of music, all of which have sustained her in a career that has stretched from performances in Oklahoma honky-tonks to sold-out shows at New York's Carnegie Hall.
