Reba McEntire is a solo artist who started in Kiowa, Oklahoma. She began her career in the music industry as a high school student singing in the Kiowa High School band, on local radio shows with her siblings, and at rodeos.

While a sophomore in college, she performed the National Anthem at the National Rodeo in Oklahoma City and caught the attention of country artist Red Steagall, who brought her to Nashville, Tennessee. She signed a contract with Mercury Records a year later in 1975.

1977—1983: Mercury Records[edit]

She released her first solo album in 1977 and released five additional studio albums under the label until 1983.

1984—Present: Mainstream Success[edit]

Signing with MCA Nashville Records, McEntire took creative control over her second MCA album, My Kind of Country (1984), which had a more traditional country sound and produced two number one singles: "How Blue" and "Somebody Should Leave".

The album brought her breakthrough success, bringing her a series of successful albums and number one singles in the 1980s and 1990s. She is referred to as "The Queen of Country" and she is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide. 28 albums have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America.
