Reba McEntire Recalls Her Days On Broadway As Annie Oakley

Reba McEntire Recalls Her Days On Broadway As Annie Oakley

It was 20 years ago this week that Reba McEntire made her Broadway debut.

Reba took over the role of “Annie Oakley” in the production of Annie Get Your Gun.

Looking back on it, Reba shares “I was so excited I could hardly stand it!”

While it was Reba’s first turn on the Broadway stage, she was no novice to acting. She appeared in her first movie, Tremors, in 1990. It also wasn’t her first time playing “Annie Oakley” – in 1995, she played “Annie” in the TV mini-series Buffalo Girls, that co-starred Anjelica Huston as “Calamity Jane” and Sam Elliot as “Wild Bill Hickok.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
