She has also scored four No. 1 singles on the Positive Country radio charts.”
“Raised on an Oklahoma ranch, Susie began singing as a teenager with her siblings, Pake and Reba, as the ‘Singing McEntires.’ In 1980, after graduating from Oklahoma State University, she was again singing with Reba who, by this time, had become a country superstar,” the site said.
The Reba and Susie McEntire made television appearances on “The Johnny Carson Show,” “Hee Haw” and “The Grand Ole Opry.”
Those attending the Grand Junction concert will have the opportunity to bid on a jacket signed by Reba McEntire.
