Ronnie Dunn Restoring Vintage Airstream for Reba McEntire
Reba McEntire is about to become the envy of restored travel trailer enthusiasts all over the country. In a post to his Facebook, her good friend and fellow country superstar Ronnie Dunn revealed an impressive gift that he’s working on for his longtime friend — a restored Airstream.
McEntire and Dunn both hail from Oklahoma originally, and they have history going back decades, when she and Brooks & Dunn both competed in the charts and toured together extensively. After Brooks & Dunn went on what seemed like an indefinite hiatus after a farewell tour in 2010, they reunited unexpectedly in 2015 to join McEntire for a residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas titled Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas, which played a number of sold-out dates in 2015 and has been extended into 2016, with more shows running in May.
“Greg Vaughn and I are renovating a vintage Airstream for Reba,” Dunn posted on Friday (Jan. 29). “Step 1…strip ‘er down to the basics. She’s gonna freak !! RD.”
At the moment, “the basics” appears to be a relatively optimistic euphemism for the trailer, which could just as readily be described in Dunn’s photo by saying, “There’s not much left of this Airstream except bare walls, a floor, a toilet … and a faraway dream.” But then again, nothing good comes easy, and we’re sure by the time McEntire’s ready to hit the road, Dunn will have her Airstream all decked out and better than the day it first rolled out onto the highway.
In the meantime, if you happen to run into Reba McEntire, don’t forget … mum’s the word about the whole Airstream thing.
