It's hard to believe that it was 34 years ago that I walked out onto a stage at a venue in Sussex County,NJ to introduce Reba McEntire! I worked for a country radio station at the time and the station was hosting the event at the Sussex County Vo Tech! I was very nervous because it was the first time I appeared at a concert and Reba was big. With hits like "I've Got a Deal For You, One Promise Too Late, Little Rock and Whoever's in New England soaring on the country charts I knew that I was about to introduce one of the greats.
Last night , 34 years later,I saw Reba at the Delaware County Fair in Harrington, Delaware. Even though the heat was unbearable, that didn't stop Reba from performing all of her great hits! Her voice is still the best and even though the heat was beyond human tolerance, Reba didn't miss a beat. The show didn't have any opening act which was great, Reba stepped on stage and began belting out a mix of all of her hits. She sang non-stop for an hour and a half, The show ended with a spectacular fireworks display!
