Reba McEntire’s ‘Turn on the Radio’ Is Our Favorite ACAs 2010 Performance
Miranda Lambert was singing along, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox were clapping, and all eyes of the Taste of Country staff were on Reba McEntire when she took the stage to sing her kiss-off hit 'Turn on the Radio' at 2010's American Country Awards. Reba's attitude and enthusiasm were infectious, and of all the performances that aired, hers was our favorite of the evening.
Reba, keeping her awards show look simple in a black tank top pants while rocking thigh-high boots, had a youthful energy that made us question her 55 years. Not only is 'Turn on the Radio' lyrically relevant -- "Try to call, Twitter me, text until your fingers bleed," she tells her ex before reminding him he'll only be hearing from her these days if he tunes in to the radio -- but Reba was definitely the hottest redhead in the room that night.
The inaugural American Country Awards gave fans a say -- they voted for winners in categories from Breakthrough Artist to Artist of the Year. But, amidst the celebration, it was Reba who brought a celeb-studded audience to its feet for a standing ovation. Bravo, Reba.
