Talent is definitely in abundance in the McEntire family. In addition to our favorite country song slinging redhead, Reba McEntire, the “Freedom” singer’s brother, Pake, and sister, Susie, have also had and continue to have their share of success as regional and national performers. But that doesn’t mean they’re the only famous McEntires. In fact, Reba’s father, Clark, was just recognized for doing what might have been second nature for the Oklahoma cowboy.

In a ceremony at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Clark was posthumously inducted into the National Cowboy Museum’s Hall of Great Westerners. Reba shared a handful of family photos on Instagram from the event, including one that showed the entire family—Pake, Alice, Mom Jackie, Susie, and Reebs—attending the event and receiving the statue honoring their father.
In the caption, Reba simply wrote, “The McEntires had a great time on OKC helping to honor Daddy. He was inducted into the @nationalcowboymuseum Hall of Great Westerners.”

Clark McEntire’s induction into the Hall of Great Westerners puts him in the company of some of the greatest historical figures, pioneers, and ranchers in the west including sculptor Frederic Remington, humorist Will Rogers, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, poet Red Steagall, and Native American guide for the Lewis & Clark expedition, Sacagawea. He was also previously inducted into the museum’s Rodeo Hall of Fame. Reba is actually a member of the museum’s Hall of Great Western Performers, which also includes Vince Gill, and actors Sam Elliot, Barbara Stanwyck, Clint Eastwood, Robert Duvall, Charlton Heston, and actor-turned-president Ronald Reagan.
