Reba McEntire made her (long awaited) entrance into the Country Music Hall of Fame this morning, alongside songwriter Bobby Braddock and singer/songwriter Jean Shepard.

The ‘If I Were A Boy,’ ‘Turn On the Radio,’ and ‘Consider Me Gone’ star was unable to attend the announcement, but fellow country legend Kix Brooks read a personal note from the new honoree.

McEntire wrote, “I’m so appreciative of being selected as one of the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. This is an emotional honor at a very (difficult) time in my life.”

The country star is currently laying low in Tulsa, Okla., with her father, who is currently in a coma. Reba adds, “This is a huge blessing for me, knowing how all-important it was to him.” It was noted that McEntire was able to share the exciting news with her father a few days ago.

The official Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held later in the year, and the inductees will also be feted at the 2011 CMA Awards telecast.
