Reba McEntire remains one of country music’s most beloved voices, recording tons of fan-favorite hits over the course of her decades-long career and showcasing her unforgettable vocals during live performances.
The Academy of Country Music reflected on a performance by the superstar artist more than three decades ago, giving country music fans a stunning throwback clip on Thursday (February 23). McEntire delivered a rendition of “Sweet Dreams” at the ACM Awards show in 1987.: “Sweet Dreams of you/ Every night I go through/ Why can't I forget you/ And start my life new/ Instead of having sweet dreams about you.”
McEntire is known for tons of smash-hit country songs throughout the course of her career. In addition to “Sweet Dreams,” McEntire’s long list of iconic anthems includes “Fancy,” “The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia,” “Does He Love You” (with Linda Davis, which got a new spin with Dolly Parton in 2021), “Is There Life Out There,” “Walk On,” “I’m A Survivor” and many more.
McEntire is set to join The Voice in the soon-to-premiere 23rd season, which will be fellow Oklahoma-born country star Blake Shelton’s final one. McEntire is set to serve as a Mega Mentor, offering guidance to contestants who made it through to the Battle Rounds as the teams prepare for Knockouts on April 17. Season 23 is set to premiere on March 6 on NBC and streaming on Peacock.
