OFFSTAGE: What Reba Wants to Learn

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Let’s first think about all the things Reba McEntire has accomplished. She’s a legend in country music, building up her stardom since she debuted more than 35 years ago. She’s been acting since the ’90s in films, television and on Broadway. She has written two books. And she created a whole line of apparel and home goods. (By the way, remind me to run to Dillard’s for her bronco platform booties with pony hair .)

But she hasn’t done absolutely everything on her to-do list. She admitted to People.com there is one thing she just can’t accomplish. “One New Year’s resolution that I’ve never been able to keep is to learn Spanish,” she says. Maybe if she wasn’t so busy singing, acting, writing and designing, she’d have the time to tackle a foreign language. ¿Estás de acuerdo?

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
