In Reba McEntire’s new video for “Going Out Like That,” there’s a gorgeous young woman playing the part of the post-heartbreak girl who is ready to move on.
Here’s the thing about that girl, though. Reba could have easily played that part.
She’s going to turn 60 in about two weeks. But in this video, you’ll swear she’s half that age.
I mean, is she aging backwards? Is she the new Benjamin Button? And what is her secret? And why didn’t she cast herself in the role of the girl who ain’t going out like that?
She clearly stays in touch with her younger self. Just check out this recent #TBT to her Jr. High days.
It could be the country-rock sound of this brand new song or her black leather jacket or all that fringe she’s wearing. But whatever Reba is doing to stay young — body, music and mind — I want in.
