Reba McEntire Rescued from Oklahoma Building After Stairwell Collapsed

Earlier this week in Atoka, Oklahoma Reba McEntire and members of her production team were touring an old historical building as a possible location for a future project when the staircase collapsed. Reba and her team were fine, but did need rescuing by the local fire and police departments.

Updating her fans about the experience, Reba shared, “While my team and I were in Atoka, OK yesterday checking out an old historical building, a staircase collapsed. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured. We were safely evacuated from the building thanks to the quick response from the Atoka fire and police departments.”

Footage captured and shared on Twitter by Lisanne Anderson, a reporter for KTEN, shows Reba being helped down a ladder from a second story window.

There were no serious injuries reported due to the accident.

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.
