Thursday’s Country Music News.
(TheBoot.com) — Reba will be featured on the second season of ‘Oprah’s Master Class.’ The OWN television network series profiles “masters” of their crafts, including recording artists, actors, athletes and other noted professionals, talking about the highs and lows of their careers and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. The show promises rarely-told stories from celebrities, with one of them sure to elicit a lot of tears.
“It killed everyone on the plane,” Reba tells Oprah of the 1991 crash that killed seven of her bandmates, her tour manager and the private plane’s two pilots. “I really thought it was over.”
Reba was supposed to be on the ill-fated flight, which crashed en route from San Diego, Calif., to their next gig in Fort Wayne, Ind. But the country superstar was battling bronchitis, and her husband urged her to spend the night in California and take a flight the next morning, so that she could get a good night’s sleep before the Indiana show.
