Reba McEntire: Is Back with a New Release ‘Going Out Like That’

Updated on September 10, 2015

My Favorite Red-Haired Singer is Singing Again

My favorite red-haired song bird is back in her inspiring mode with a new song after five years. All her fans are happy now and I am one of them—big time.

Her song ‘Going Out Like That’ was released on Monday, January 5th. You can get it on iTunes Country Chart and it is already #1. See this is how much we missed her.

Here is one of my favorites of Reba’s ‘Cry’ as she sings from the hearts of many women. Feel it?

Catching Up with Reba

Reba McEntire is so proud of her son Shelby Blackstock and that he has chosen a career which makes him happy; and that is racing professionally.

She will be appearing at L’ Auberge du Lac Casino and Resort in Lake Charles Louisiana on Friday December 13, 2013. Anyone interested in buying tickets now---Ticketmaster is selling them now at a most reasonable price.

Reba Barrel Raced with Her Horse

Reba and Shelby look more like brother and sister in lieu of son and mother. And, although Reba did her share of risky barrel racing in her past; I am sure her heart is in her throat when her baby races by in his red race car. I wish Shelby all the luck in his career and that he will be safe and happy.

Reba and her husband Narvel Blackstock have done a great job of parenting with Shelby. Reba is also a step-mom to Narvel’s three children of a previous marriage, whom she loves very much, as per her interviews. Catching up with Reba has been fun and now we know where she will be in December on the 13th.

Fan are Waiting for Season Two

Let me just say---ABC the fans of Malibu County desires it to return for “Season Two” and we would appreciate it very much if this is granted.

There are not many “Fun Family Shows” most of them are completely dull, boring or just plain stupid. So finally we have a show that is funny, downhome style sprinkle with the wit of Lily Tomlin made it a must for my family to watch.

All the actors in the show are the perfect choice to have a hit show so I do not see the need to hesitate on this decision. So do not procrastinate on this one please---the fans are waiting.

I love songs by Reba McEntire her voice is so unique and beautiful. I play her songs from YouTube music when I am working on my computer---because I have all her cd's in my car.

Final Episode for Season 1

Reba’s family has gone behind her back to set up a secret online date. Now we know how Reba felt in the past about dating---she was just not into it.

What will she think when her family does this? Can you envision her reactions? It can neither make her resist their good intentions---or she may realize she want to go with the flow; and start dating again.

Where will Stacy Keach’s character take Reba and why doesn’t it have a positive outcome? We shall see on Friday Night---bring your popcorn---this will be funny. Does he bring her flowers? Maybe he will bring Chocolates or maybe both? Will he take her out in a Limo? Or will this be a cheap date?

After all she is young and beautiful and should be enjoying life more than being---just a mother, daughter and provider of her family. She has the class to catch anyone’s attention and I say “You Go Girl” and get with the program.It would be great to see Reba and her mother double dating, and a hoot to boot.

I cannot wait for Season 2 to begin for Malibu Country---because I know with Reba dating will make it---a treat to watch.

Season 1 Episode 17---New Plans

Reba after wanting to meet Mr. Bata for so long---feels a little offended that he would have the absolute audacity to ask her--- to write jingles for commercials.

I bet Mama Lillie Mae would tell him what he could do with his jingle if he had asked her. However, Reba cannot bite the hand that might one day feed her.

She is still trying to make a career for herself now that she is the sole breadwinner in her household.

So Reba has to bite her tongue until Mr. Bata is aware he is misusing a great talent.

Then her star will shine brighter and go higher than even she could envision.

Oh Brother---Blake Shelton

Reba and Geoffrey walked in her kitchen to find her Mom making her secret Barbecue Sauce. Reba tells him Mom only makes her secret sauce on two occasions---when my little brother Blake is coming home or for funerals. Then she asks her mother “Who died?”

“No one.” her mother replied. And then Reba asked her Mom if Blake was coming home? “No” Smiling the biggest smile a mother can while she still stirs her sauce.

Then Reba’s mom said, “He is already here.” And then little brother Blake (Blake Shelton) walks in. Blake gave Reba a big brotherly hug. Now why couldn’t we all have a talented handsome brother like him? I don’t have a brother so I can ask that--- without offending anyone.

So tonight is going to be a blast and I cannot wait to see it. Friday night on ABC @ 8:30 pm. See you there with popcorn and a smile. I cannot wait to hear him sing---and I am sure Reba will sing with him.

Cutbacks and Reba Writes for Shauna

Geoffrey (Jai Rodriquez) is upset because the music company where he works and Reba writes songs for is cutting back.

Reba tells him she is sorry is he one of the cutbacks and Geoffrey told her she was the one who got the axe.

After Reba’s shock of hearing about her sad future with the music company--- Geoffrey tells her Shauna the naughty girl singer is a favorite and the Boss wants someone to write songs for her.

Of course----Reba said she could write for her---but Geoffrey had his concerns about it; because Reba finds it difficult not to inject her song writing with her style.

However, against his better judgment Shauna with stay with Reba while she writes for her. I cannot wait to hear what Mama Lille Mae (Lily Tomlin) has to say about this idea of Reba’s. Will it work out? We will have to wait and watch tonight at 8:30 pm on ABC. I know I cannot wait to see what happens.

Remember Lily Tomlin When She did The Operator

Lily Tomlin

Lily Tomlin is one of my very favorite stars and she has sparkled and shined for many years bring joy to all her fans.

My mother was one of her biggest fans and she enjoyed her "Funny Lily" as she called her. I just wished mother could see her today in Malibu Country.

Easy Money

June has a meeting about her Internet video and Reba wants to show her how brutal show business is for real. Reba thinks after June has to wait two hours for an appointment she will forget about show business.

When June checks about her appointment she is called in right away and Reba cannot believe it. Reba lesson backfired on her as usual.

I cannot wait to see what else happens tonight on ABC---I hope will you be there also.

Push Comes to Shove

Reba is always getting into trouble with her red-haired temper, but this time I am on her side. Cash is dealing with a bully at school that calls him a “Hillbilly” and makes fun of him constantly. Cash tries to ignore him but he had to gently shove him away from in front of his locker so he could get his school books for class. The bully was not hurt but the Principal whose brain seems to be in another orbit is blaming Cash.

Now we all know you do not mess with Reba’s kids or her mother, or the real red-haired hill person will come after you. Ask the principal and I am sure if you do go get in his sphere---he will tell you.

This episode was funny---but I am beginning to believe their writers went on a long Christmas Holiday and did not return.

Malibu Christmas

Everyone is excited about Christmas and Reba has a pink Christmas tree thanks to Lillie Mae. Reba wants a real tree but her mother is trying to get her to change---change is good she tells Reba.

So, what will happen about the tree? Will Reba get to sing in the Malibu Church atfer she auditions? Will Kim audition also?

This Friday will either bring out the Jingle Bells or the Cat Claws between Reba and Kim?

Season 1 Episode 6

Reba has a surprise guest and who could it be? Could it be old boyfriend? Will they go on a date? Just who is he anyway---he is really cute.

Kim tries to give Reba some advice on how to act around him. Will Reba listen to her teacher of experience or will she let another handsome hunk run through her fingers like the salty sea water outside her door?

I cannot wait to see what will happen Friday on ABC.

Season 1 Episode 5

Reba is trying not to feel guilty when her daughter June wants to go shopping with her neighbor Kim. Reba thinks she has been neglecting her child and gives a try at shopping with June, but son they both agree that Kim is more fun for June to shop with than Reba. And it all ends happily.

Now---Reba's mother Lily Mae is another story---she actually could be a novel. Lily Mae is trying to show her grandson Cash how to be the man of the house. And Lily Mae uses some odds teaching skills---but in the end Cash has become more of a man in charge---and everyone is proud of him.

So many lessons learned in this episode and it all ends well---even though the beginning was a little scary.

What will Episode 6 bring? We will have to wait and see---but I am sure Lily Mae will be a hoot. I love her "Happy Lollypop."

Episode 4---Cash's Car

Reba's ex-husband visits her to explain why he bought Cash a car. She said you just made me look like a bad mother. He tries to explain that their son called him all the time and that he is not happy in California---he wants to move back with him.

This throws Reba a little to hear this about her son. But being Reba she wants to show her ex-husband what he has been missing. And the fun begins---so don't forget to watch Episode 4 it should be a winner.

Malibu Country a Family Comedy

Reba McEntire is one of my all-time favorite singers and actresses. And I am so happy she will be back on television and in my home on Friday nights on ABC. I am going to shout it down my country road so it can echo through the hills and valleys of all the farms, horse farms and country folks in our area.

Reba will play “Reba McKinsey ” and her husband Russell (Jeffery Nordling ) will be playing her lying and cheating husband. And we will see how our Reba handles this issue. Will she stand by her man? Will she give him the boot?

Her mother, Lilie Mae (Lily Tomlin ) is going to be a hoot in this family comedy. She will be especially funny as she shares her life with her daughter, Reba and her three grandchildren after the divorce.

Reba leaves Nashville and moves her family with her mother to Malibu in a house she got in the divorce settlement, to start a new life. And while she is starting a new life she is thinking about reviving her singing career; which she gave up in order to be with her babies while they were growing up.

Her mother Lily is hilarious , after arriving in California she visits a doctor to get a prescription for her happy lollipops. Even though she is in an orbit of her own---she is still Reba’s mother and gives her daughter good advice.

We will see how the children adjust to the Malibu life as Reba’s motherly instincts works overtime to keep her children grounded; with the good up bringing she instilled in them. And like all mothers--- she has eyes in the back of--- her head.

I cannot wait until the fall to see Reba McEntire act and sing once again . With Lily Tomlin in this family comedy this will be my Friday night date to watch this one. With popcorn and ice water--- I will be waiting for the Premiere of--- Malibu Country in November on Friday nights at 8:30/7:30c . I will update the exact date of the Reba McEntire Premiere's in Malibu Country on ABC in the Fall.


I remember when Reba played Annie Oakley in “Buffalo Girls” one of my favorite movies. She was so young then, but still very talented. I believe Buffalo Girls was made in 1995, and had some more of my favorites in it. Like Anjelica Huston, Melanie Griffith and Sam Elliott.

Lily Tomlin is an actress, comedian, writer and producer . She is a multi-talented lady who has over 60 titles in her acting resume. And more movies planned in the future, and one to be completed in 2013, there is no end to this lady’s energy and aspirations.

Also I remember Lily Tomlin in “Nine to Five” with Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda---it was very funny. She has been in many movies will probably write, produce and act in many more before she takes a break.

Reba's Blind Date

Reba really seems to need help in selecting what to wear on her first date. And she does not want the children to know about it.

This will be a funny second episode about her first date after getting her divorce. Now that her singing career has started---I love all of Reba McEntire Lyrics maybe things are looking up for her, her children and Mom(Lily Tomlinson).

We will see in episode 2
