Reba McEntire Has More Acting Roles She Wants To Try: “I Love to Entertain People”

When it comes to acting, Reba McEntire wants to do it all. And why not?

Reba is currently in the midst of shooting her new television series, Red Blooded, in Madison, Ga. The hour-long drama, from creator Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids), has Reba starring as Sheriff Ruby Adair, who is dealing with a suspected act of terrorism that happens at a Fourth of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, Ky.

While our favorite redhead is knee deep in playing a small town sheriff, it’s not the only role she sees herself playing.

“A dream role would be ten different kinds because I would like to hit all facets—the kooky neighbor down the hall or the heroine in a western,” said Reba. “There are a lot of times when I go to movies and I say, ‘Why didn’t they cast me for that part? I could have done that!” There’s just so many different types. I love to watch television. I love movies. So acting is something that entertains me. Television and movies entertain me. I love to be entertained, but I also love to entertain people. By watching that, I want to get in there and do it myself.”

No word yet on when the show will hit the small screen.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
