Reba McEntire’s Dad Returns Home After Stroke
Reba McEntire's father, Clark, received the best Father's Day gift of all this weekend, as he has left the hospital following his stroke earlier this year. He's now recovering in the comfort of his own home.
"Just want to let you all know that my Daddy is back home after a long stint in hospitals and rehab," McEntire tweeted today. "Thanks so much for all your prayers."
Clark McEntire, 84, suffered from a stroke just days after finding out his superstar daughter was being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The entire McEntire clan rushed back to Oklahoma upon receiving the sad news, where Daddy McEntire remained in a Tulsa hospital for many weeks in a coma.
"He's doing very well," Reba told media backstage at this year's ACM Awards in April. "I'm not kidding you ... We have planned the funeral three times. We've selected songs [and] picked out where he's going to be buried, and now he's just done a complete turnaround."
Clark McEntire was a four time World Champion steer roper in the late '50s and early '60s, and is currently included in the Rodeo Hall of Fame. We at Taste of Country continue to send our best wishes and prayers to the entire McEntire family as Clark continues to make a speedy recovery!
