When it comes to strong and inspiring women for aspiring young country stars to look up to, there are plenty to choose from, but even those iconic superstars need someone to turn to from time to time. Reba McEntire finds her inspiration in her own beautiful mother, Jackie.
Recently, Reba shared a photo on her Instagram page that shows the country singer-songwriter next to what we can only imagine is her favorite woman in the world. With a beautiful, mountainous landscape as a backdrop, their fiery red hair makes a sharp contrast against the big, blue sky. But these cowgirls would be breathtaking anywhere.
In another photo, Reba spends a little time with a different kind of ginger.
Trotting around the ring on a stunning chestnut horse, Reba throws up a hand to wave at the camera, obviously thrilled to be back in her environment. Remember, before she was a big time country star, Ms. McEntire was competing in barrel racing events and singing the national anthem at rodeos. And running barrels is no joke.
She was definitely country before country was cool.
