Reba McEntire has never abandoned her country lifestyle

Born in Oklahoma in 1955, McEntire spent her childhood on a cattle ranch as one middle child of four siblings. Her mother was a teacher, and her father was a world champion steer roper. Young McEntire was a rodeo barrel racer herself before turning her aspirations toward a career in country music.

McEntire never seemed to lose touch with her beginnings throughout more than four decades of fame. And she’s always said the values in how she was raised molded her into the hard-working, determined person she needed to be to become a star.

And there’s little doubt that those roots will be showcased in her upcoming book. Plus, fans can expect some wisdom from her perspective as a twice-divorced mother and stepmother. Maybe she’ll even share some secrets from her relationship with the partner she said she’d always hoped for, Rex Linn.

Publishers anticipate a fall 2023 release for Reba McEntire’s lifestyle book

According to a press release from publisher Harper Celebrate, McEntire’s untitled book is set for a fall 2023 release. It will feature recipes, stories, photos in full color, and advice from the multi-talented superstar on various lifestyle-related topics.

She’ll share her hacks for some of life’s tasks, from hosting parties to packing suitcases. Each chapter of the book will center on a theme from her music. And those will include “grit, family legacy, being curious, and prioritizing the things that matter most,” the press release shared.

“I’m so excited to partner with the Harper Celebrate team to create my first lifestyle book where I will share stories, behind the scenes photos, some of my favorite recipes and life lessons I’ve learned over the years,” McEntire said of the project. “I know my fans are going to love it!”

Reba McEntire’s lifestyle book will ‘offer a seat at her table’

McEntire has had her hand in singing, acting, barrel racing, and a few different kinds of business, like boots, clothes, and furniture. Not to mention she was the first female Colonel Sanders for KFC. But the experience she and the publishers are trying to create with her forthcoming book is a feeling of being at home with the hard-working country star.

“Reba is universally beloved for her talent, humor, and unapologetic authenticity,” Michael Aulisio, vice president and publisher at Harper Celebrate, said.

“This book will offer readers a seat at Reba’s table as she shares her hard-earned wisdom on what it means to live a good life,” Aulisio explained. “And let me assure you, there will be a lot of fun had along the way.”
