Top 10 Essential Reba McEntire Albums

By

Reba McEntire is one of the most recognized names in country today. She helped pave the way for a new generation of female singers. She is a living legend in her field and is still going strong with new and successful projects including starring in her own TV series. She has performed on Broadway in a title role. She has acted in several movies both on the big screen and made for TV. She is a wife and a mother. Reba chooses what she wants to do and goes all out to make sure it is a success. I've compiled the top 10 albums every Reba fan should have.
