Country music superstar Reba McEntire returns to Greenville for the first time in 20 years | News
Greenville, SC (FOX Carolina) – Upstate County music fans had something to celebrate when one of the biggest names in the business made a stop in Greenville.
Superstar Reba McEntire performed to a packed house at Bon Secours Wellness Arena on Thursday night.
It’s the country music icon’s first time in Greenville in over two decades and fans couldn’t be more excited.
“I’ve been a Reba fan since probably before I was born,” Kimberly Moock said.
Reba, known for hits like “Consider me Gone” and “Fancy,” performed to a nearly sold-out crowd.
Some fans have waited years to see a show.
Kimberly Moock drove in from Charleston: “One of the things on my to-do list is that if I ever had to go see Reba within 500 miles, I was going. I didn’t care where she was.
Reba is a household name with a successful career spanning music, television and film. She has won 3 GRAMMY Awards, had 35 No. 1 singles, and sold over 56 million albums worldwide.
“Reba is a real country. She’s honest when she sings her songs and feels good about them,” said lifelong fan Lee Henry.
His music touches fans who love classic county.
“I’m just happy to listen to good old country music. I like old style music over newer style. I love listening to classic country music,” Moock said.
Younger generations who grew up listening to his music were equally thrilled to see the country music star in person.
“Ever since I was little, my mom would line her up in the car, so I would follow her,” Jaylyn Driver said.
