Beckie Singer Eason is a Pre-K teacher in Lane, OK, and her school has a program where guests come into read to the students. When her TA and her were telling their students about it, one of the kids said that no one from the community would come because no one cares about small schools in small towns. She told them that is not true and there are a famous people, like Blake Shelton, who cares about the smalls towns.
So Mrs. Eason got her students together, made up a sign that reads, “Blake Shelton, If we get 1,000 shares, will you come and read to our class?? P.S. Bring Reba”, and posted it on Facebook. Not only did she get the 1,000 shares, she got 20 times that and the attention of Reba McEnitre. Now is up the Oklahoma native to turn his chair around and say yes. Something I am sure the Voice coach will do because I doubt his good friend Reba will let him say no. Especially to those sweet faces! How can anyone say no to them?
CMT is reporting that Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire are going to tour together!
McEntire and Clarkson will be sharing a band and performing each other’s songs during their 2 Worlds 2 Voices tour. The 15-city tour kicks off Jan. 17 in Dayton, Ohio, and concludes Feb. 16 in Kansas City, Mo.
This tour makes so much sense because the two have been doing so much together including Because of You, CMT’s Crossroads and even Kelly guest starring on her old sitcom Reba plus both are repped by Reba’s husband.
I think the Kelly’s move from Hollywood to Nashville was a smart choice and will really help her career in the long run.

So on Friday Kanye West was in VH1’s face saying he is number one. Well not anymore he is back to his loser status because little ole Reba McEntire out sold Kanye West in the second week of Graduation’s release. That is right Kanye West has already dropped out of the top spot after one whole week of being number one. According to Billboard:
After debuting at No. 1 last week, Kanye West’s Def Jam album “Graduation” falls to No. 2 with 226,000, a sales slide of 76%.
Ouch that has to hurt! Ha Ha Ha!!!!
But let’s get back to Reba who scored her first number one with Duets! You go girl!!! You richly deserved a number one album and I am glad your friends were there to share it with you!
The little red head that could, is! According to Billboard as of Thursday's sales of Reba Duets was outselling Kanye West by 155,000 to 91,000. Reba was all over the place last week promoting her (what sounds like) amazing album on Oprah with Kelly Clarkson and Justin Timberlake and the morning shows and anyone that would have her and it all paid off!!! I am so happy for her because she deserves it!!! You go Reba!!!
But now what does this say about Kanye West's album that his fans thought it sucked or maybe his numbers from last week were not exactly real?
I hate to say this because I love the original version of Because of You, but I think the Reba McEntire/Kelly Clarkson version is better! I like the way the two of them sound together! They should release a duet album together and then they can tour together, maybe that would help Kelly’s recent woes.
