Country star Reba McEntire announced today that she will return to her original label home, Universal Music Group Nashville, where she spent the first 32 years of her career. During her time on both Mercury and MCA Records, two of the four labels that form Universal Music Group Nashville, Reba released 33 of her 35 career No. 1 singles and sold over 56 million albums worldwide.
“It’s a wonderful feeling to be back with the family where I started,” shares Reba. “I am thrilled because my catalog is here at Universal and I’m really excited to revisit all the songs that I recorded many years ago. We’re going to have a lot of fun.”
“At a time when our music, our community and our artists need a bright guiding light, Reba returning to the place where it all started is a great testament to her continuing impact and her powerful musical legacy and we are so proud she’s coming home,” says UMG Nashville President Cindy Mabe. “Reba is a music icon who changed culture and paved her own path by making strong empowering musical statements throughout her career through her songs, her videos, her fashion, her shows and her persona. She’s inspired so many generations of fans and there is so much more impact to be made. It is our honor and privilege to get to collaborate and grow the future of Reba’s musical career.”
On March 20th, Reba will hit the road on her first headlining arena tour since 2011, kicking off in Evansville, IN. Rising singer/songwriter Caylee Hammack is set to join her for a dozen stops including Pittsburgh, PA, Toledo, OH, St. Paul, MN and more.
