Reba McEntire Ushers In The Holidays with a Christmas Medley on “Live with Kelly and Ryan”


Reba McEntire is making the rounds promoting her Christmas album, My Kind of Christmas, as well as her hosting gig on “CMA Country Christmas,” airing tonight (Nov. 27) on ABC.

The “Fancy” singer stopped by “Live with Kelly and Ryan” to perform songs from her Christmas album and put us all in the mood for the upcoming holiday.

After talking with Ryan and Kelly about being famous, her early career as a barrel racer and learning to drive at the age of 5, Reba took the stage to perform a medley of Christmas songs including “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Hard Candy Christmas,” and “O Holy Night.”

“Daddy would put a feed sack right there underneath the steering wheel and we’d get up on our knees and we’d drive,” Reba told the hosts. “He’d put it in granny gear and he’d hop out and we’d be steering. He’d say ‘just stay away from the rocks and trees.’ So he’d get in the back and put out the cattle feed or hay and we’d just keep it going straight.”

Nothing like starting them early. Speaking of early, Reba released her Christmas album, My Kind of Christmas, on Oct. 13. The re-release will contain brand new songs featuring Darius Rucker, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Lauren Daigle, Trisha Yearwood and Kelly Clarkson.

You can also catch Reba hosting CMA Country Christmas for the first time tonight (Nov. 27) from the Grand Ole Opry at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
