Reba Slated To Sing National Anthem At Super Bowl LVIII
Reba McEntire is slated to perform the National Anthem for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. The Super Bowl will take place at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, February 11, and will air on CBS.
The performance will mark a full-circle moment for Reba. She was discovered 50 years ago at the 1974 National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma singing the National Anthem.
Reba said, “I’m honored to be part of something as big and historic as the Super Bowl coming to Las Vegas for the first time. 2024 marks 50 years since I was discovered singing the National Anthem at the National Finals Rodeo, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate that anniversary.”
Along with Reba, pre-game talent for the Super Bowl includes Post Malone and Andra Day, with Usher performing at halftime.
The country icon recently wrapped her role as coach on Season 24 of NBC’s The Voice. She is set to return for Season 25.
Reba chatted with CMT recently and shared with them one of her most embarrassing moments on stage. CMT posted the fun interview clip on their Instagram.
She quipped, “Oh gosh, how much time do you have? It was the early ’80s, and I was headlining. I was going to make my way to stage right, and blue lights were gonna come on.”
She continued, “I was gonna walk back on stage and sing ‘Sweet Dreams’ acapella. I did not remember this monitor being there on the floor, so when I was shuffling my way off stage right, I shuffled my toes right underneath that monitor and fell over on top of it.”
She continued, “I crawled off stage and ripped my britches, but the show must go on, so I dusted myself off and put my hand over where I ripped my britches. I came back out and did the song, and nobody knew the difference.”
