Reba McEntire has a lot of great Christmas memories, but one that always comes to mind when she thinks of her childhood, is of her older brother, Pake.
Reba recalls, “The funniest thing I can always remember about Christmastime is my older brother Pake, when we were kids at home, he’d always be the first one to jump out of bed and run down the hall, and he’d just run down the hall with his underwear on. And he’d say, ‘If y’all don’t hurry up and get up and get in here, I’m opening all the presents by myself’ But he knew it was a standing rule we all had to be in there before anybody could open up a present, but I can still see Pake running down the hall.”
Two legends, one song. Reba covered Dolly Parton‘s “Hard Candy Christmas” a couple of years ago on the CMA Country Christmas special–check out that awesome performance right here…
