Watch Reba McEntire Complete the “Today” Show Trifecta: Interviewee, Co-Host and Performer

In support of her recently released new album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, Reba McEntire kicked off a busy week of television appearances this morning (Feb. 6) with a visit to Today, where she completed the show’s trifecta: interviewee, co-host and performer.

In the interview segment, Reba chatted with hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb about the new album, revealing, “Well, one of the songs on the album is ‘God and My Girlfriends,’ and those are the two that really helped me through [recently losing my father and getting divorced],” said Reba. “My faith, my family and my friends, those are the things that helped me through . . .”

In a later segment, Reba joined Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones as a co-host and played a game of Country Confessions, where she revealed the craziest thing her concertgoers do and her favorite country song (“Fancy”).

Reba completed her Today duties by performing a few songs from the new album, including “Back to God” and the aforementioned “God and My Girlfriends,” which was written by Patricia Conroy, Lisa Hentrich and Marcia Ramirez.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
