Reba McEntire Waits for No One … Not Even Madonna
No matter how famous you are, Reba McEntire still expects you to be on time. The country icon went to see Madonna in concert and Monday night (Jan. 18), and according to her Instagram posts, the “Like a Virgin” singer was not prompt in her arrival to the stage.
McEntire posted several photos chronicling her wait time, noting Madonna did not start her set until 10:31PM. The show was scheduled to begin at 8PM, according to the Tennessean.
Upon taking the stage, Madonna reportedly asked the Music City crowd: “What the (expletive) took me so long?”
McEntire didn’t post any followups to let fans know what she thought of the (eventual) performance. Instead, she continued teasing her new touching music video for “Just Like Them Horses,” dedicated to her father Clark McEntire, who passed away in 2014. The video went live Tuesday and features McEntire’s real mother alongside the artist on their family’s farm.
“Mama had to be in the video. She was and still is the glue to our family,” the star explains. “We shot the entire video in Chockie, Okla. on the McEntire home-place. Those old hills mean a lot to me. I lived there 21 years and they still call me back time after time.”
“Just Like Them Horses” appears on McEntire’s most recent album Love Somebody and was even played at her father’s funeral. Written by Liz Hengber and Tommy Lee James, the song is the third single from the No. 1 album, McEntire’s 27th studio record.
“It reminded me of Daddy, and I asked (Hengber) if I could record it and play it at Daddy’s funeral because he had been sick for four or five years,” McEntire reveals. “Not long after we recorded it, Daddy passed away.”
