CMT Giants: Reba
AIRED:
Hollywood and Country Music's finest come to the Kodak Theater for an all-star salute like no other to the reigning "Queen of Country Music" - Ms. Reba McEntire.

Special Guests who helped tell the story and let everyone know what Reba meant to them include Reba show's Melissa Peterman and Christopher Rich, Loretta Lynn, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, President George H. W. Bush, Barbara Mandrell, Andie MacDowell, Dakota Fanning, James Denton and Red Steagall.

Outstanding performances of Reba's biggest hits included Martina McBride performing Reba's first huge hit and first music video "Whoever's in New England". Pop sensation and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson brought down the house with "Why Haven't I Heard From You". One half of Country Music's power couple - Faith Hill challenged one of Reba's toughest songs "You Lie". Country pioneer Dolly Parton brought a lighthearted performance of "How Blue". Jennifer Nettles of 'Sugarland' poured her heart into "The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia". Leann Rimes sang the sweet ballad "The Greatest Man I Never Knew".

    From the first moment that Reba's beautiful voice sang out from behind the curtains on this episode of CMT Giants, I swear I bet that everybody's ears were thinking that Reba's voice has absolutely got to be a present from God to everybody watching her perform that day in person and on television. That is until Reba stepped out from behind the curtain! That moment ABSOLUTELY HAD TO BE A GIFT FROM GOD TO ALL HIS CHILDREN! I personally have never seen Reba Mcentire look as beautiful as she did that day! I mean, her dress, her hair, her jewelry, HER EVERYTHING! It actually took my breath away! I have adored Reba Mcentire since the first moment I ever heard her sing the song that made her into a country music legend, and that of course was "FANCY." By the end of the show, after hearing her songs one by one, being performed by the most talented, beautiful and amazing array of country and pop music legends you could ever hope to perform her songs, my adoration for Reba had completely busted at the seams. And then just when there were only a few minutes left of the show that I thought would maybe be like someone listing who would be on the next show of CMT Giants, Reba walked out onto that stage and sang the one song that she will always be remembered for, the one song that made me adore her so much, the one and only "FANCY", my eyes were rivited on that stage, watching her belt out those lyrics, just like she did the very first time she ever performed it live, my adoration for her grew into a feeling of admiration for her, that has continued to grow just more and more through out the years hearing her sing # 1 hits, time after time, then watching all 6 seasons of her award-winning show, Reba, those feelings of adoration and admiration have now turned into R-E-S-P-E-C-T and always and forever it shall continue to be that way for me.moreless
