1. She’s not afraid to try new things.

Reba always took big risks with her music and music videos before she ventured into acting on Broadway and starring in not one, but two TV sitcoms. Now, she’s just released her first-ever gospel album, “Sing It Now,” and is gearing up to play a small town sheriff in a new ABC drama series. Is there anything this woman can’t do?

2. She sings like nobody’s business.

Reba is a singer’s singer. Listening to her sing, you can hear little bits of the vocal styles of her heroes, such as Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline. The voice is 100 percent Reba, though. Check out her 1991 hit “You Lie” and her live cover of Patsy’s “Sweet Dreams” to see what we’re talking about here.

3. She’s got the coolest friends.

Everyone on earth wants to be friends with Reba. From Elton John to Harrison Ford to Woody from “Toy Story,” Reba’s had hang time with just about every famous person under the sun. Forget “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.” You could have a blast connecting Reba to just about any celebrity on the planet in six people or less. By the way, Reba did co-star with Kevin Bacon in the 1990 sci-fi film “Tremors.”


4. She’s a load of fun.

Just take a spin through Reba’s Instagram account for proof on this one. Reba and her crew are always on the go and having a blast. The woman may be a certified country legend, but she’s not afraid to get a little silly.

5. All kidding aside, Reba is looking hotter than ever. Damn, Reba!
