Before They Were Famous: Reba McEntire

Reba McEntire may have had the most, um … interesting job of any country singer before she made it big. She was a cowgirl, which sounds pretty great, but she also helped her father turn bulls into steers. In her 1994 autobiography, ‘Reba: My Story,’ she writes, “I would stand behind the bull and hold his tail while Daddy sliced the sack and cut the cord and let the testicles fall … Daddy would pass the testicles to me and I’d put them in a bucket.” When McEntire was first getting started, Nashville was somewhat of an old-boy’s network. After telling that story, she surely got the respect she deserved.
