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.

This was made a while ago and obviously it did not work, but it was too cool not to post. I am still bummed The CW canceled Reba because I really liked that show. Plus it did better than their Monday night comedies. Oh well at least The CW picked up all the other shows I watch, Everybody Hates Chris, One Tree Hill, Smallville and Supernatural.
Jessica Simpson had an uncomfortable moment singing "Nine to Five" as part of the tribute to Parton, finishing the song abruptly with the words "so nervous" and quickly exiting, to no applause. She was in tears when she and the other singers in the tribute came back out. Country singer Reba McEntire told the audience Parton changed Nashville. "Once upon a time, a woman in Nashville was told what song to sing, in what clothes," she said. "Because of Dolly we’ve been writing, producing and singing our own music for some time now." Parton, 60, a country singer who has performed for more than four decades, is a Grammy-winner who also has appeared in movies such as "Nine to Five,""The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" and "Steel Magnolias." And there is her Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. CBS will broadcast the show Dec. 26 at 9 p.m. EST.
The CW will try to shore up its Sunday-night schedule later this month with a show that, for some time last spring, looked like it wouldn’t be back: "Reba." The sitcom starring Reba McEntire will make its return to TV on Sunday, Nov. 19 with back-to-back episodes starting at 7 p.m. Beginning the following week, the network will air a repeat of the show at 7 p.m., followed by an original at 7:30 that will lead into "7th Heaven." That’s the second big change the new network has made to Sundays in the past month. The CW switched its Sunday and Monday lineups in early October, sending the long-running "7th Heaven" and the soon-to-be-cancelled "Runaway" to Sundays and moving its comedy block anchored by "Everybody Hates Chris" and "Girlfriends" to Mondays. The move worked out well for the comedies, whose ratings have improved some since the change, and less so for "7th Heaven," which has seen its audience fall by about a million viewers. Adding "Reba" to the night will create a family-friendly block of programming from 7 to 9 p.m., although with the likes of "Sunday Night Football," "The Amazing Race" and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" as competition, a big ratings bump doesn’t seem likely. "Reba" was The WB’s highest-rated sitcom for virtually all of the five seasons it aired there. The CW, though, initially seemed to be leaning toward dropping the series, which would have meant paying an eight-figure kill fee to producer 20th Century Fox TV left the show. The network decided to renew it after all, holding it in reserve for after the fall launch.
A little history The CW cancelled it, but then when they realized they still had to pay them for this season whether they filmed or not they decided to bring it back as a midseason. The interesting fact that no one mentioned is Reba (20th Century Fox) was the only show that The CW was considering to pick up that was not owned by either Paramount TV or Warner Bros TV Studios and it was originally dropped by the network. Coincidence, I am not so sure??? So when Reba comes back…watch it, just to mess with them and let them know what a mistake they made by giving The Game a full season pick-up!
LATEST:Country star REBA MCENTIRE has weighed in against the DIXIE CHICKS again, after they criticised fans of her music. The pair first came to blows after the group criticised US President GEORGE W BUSH’s – a close friend of Republican MCEntire – decision to go to war in Iraq. Although they later apologised, singer MARTIE MAGUIRE recently took back the apology and claimed the furore had helped them connect with their audience, adding an attack on MCEntire: "I’d rather have a small following of really cool people who get it, who will grow with us as we grow and are fans for life, than people that have us in their five-disc (CD) changer with Reba MCEntire and Toby Keith. We don’t want those kind of fans. They limit what you can do." MCEntire is furious. She’s quoted in the New York Daily News, saying, "(I’m) very disappointed. I’ve never turned my back on country music. "So when somebody talks bad about my music, my family, that does not set well with me. And when you bite the hand that feeds you, I just don’t think that’s very nice."
