Country’s Most Shocking Moments – Reba’s Red Dress

“I got more press off that dress than if I’d won Entertainer of the Year,” Reba McEntire quipped about a red dress she wore at the 1993 CMA Awards. “I told lots of people I had it on backwards.”

McEntire says she didn’t realize the gown was so revealing, as her dressing room lights were dim and it looked OK when she gave herself a final check. Her stylist was to have added sequins. “Kris Kristofferson walked past me, and of course his eyes got big and I wondered, ‘Hmm … I wonder if she did fill it in.'” When McEntire stepped onstage to sing, there was a gasp, but being the professional she is, she kept the show moving forward. The dress now hangs in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
