They’re now a dynamic trio. Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn were once rivals on the charts but now they have performed together in Vegas since 2015. They are so close that the musical duo helped McEntire renovate her Airstream. The experience was so hilarious that the idea of a reality television show was proposed. So will it happen?
The Brooks & Dunn and Reba Backstory
Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn both dominated the charts in the world of 1990s country. The latter, comprised of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, formed in 1990. In 1991 they released their first single, “Brand New Man,” which went to the top of the US Country charts. From there, they went on to achieve international fame with hits like “My Maria” and “Neon Moon.” Their success as a duo was unprecedented. Of course, McEntire had her career in full throttle in the 1990s, so they were constantly battling for first place (along with other mainstays of 90s country, including Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, and George Strait).
McEntire joined Brooks & Dunn for a series of Las Vegas shows in 2015. It was so popular that they continued in 2016 and 2017. Now they begin their fourth season in 2018. But aside from joining musical forces, the three are also great friends.
The Reba McEntire Airstream
When Reba McEntire decided she wanted to update her Airstream, she decided to call on her old friend, Ronnie Dunn. He helped her strip it down to its bare bones. From there, they rebuilt it with it with a deer antler chandelier, wood paneling to give it a log cabin feel, and curtains. McEntire shared her excitement about the new bus with Taste of Country. “I’m gonna pull it a little bit and then I’m gonna park it on my acreage out there close to the house,” she said. “Right not too far from the lake where I can skeet and trap shoot and just camp out.”
Because of how well the project went, and how much fun they had doing it, the idea of a reality television show was floated. So would they do it?
The Reality TV Show
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem likely that a reality television show for the group will happen. McEntire had a valid concern. “Oh my gosh, we might kill each other,” she said with a laugh.
Alas, as that would make wonderful television. But luckily we have another year to see them in Vegas.
