Reba McEntire has a lot to talk about, and that's great because we love to hear her talk. During a 15-minute conversation arranged to discuss her 2017 CMA Awards nomination, upcoming Christmas special and new Christmas album, the legend told the sort of honest stories you'd expect, using language as charming as you'd hope for.

A gas station is a "filling station." Keith Urban once lost his "gee-tar." The CMA Music Festival will forever be Fan Fair, and wait until you hear why she thinks she's an easy person to buy for come Christmastime. We couldn't argue with her on that!

McEntire is up for Female Vocalist of the Year at the CMA Awards on Nov. 8. A win would continue a great four to six weeks that has included a Dove Award win for her Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope album, the 40th anniversary of her first Opry performance, the release of a deluxe edition of her My Kind of Christmas album and more.

Remember: The best way to take in the CMA Awards is with your TV on, refreshing Taste of Country on your phone!
