Reba McEntire's song, "Daddy" is such a touching tribute to her father, who recently passed away. 

In 1979, before Reba was the country music icon she is today, she released her second album titled, Out of a Dream. The second track on that album was a heartfelt tribute to her father, and was also the first song that Reba had written solely by herself. 

The emotional song tells the life story of her father, Clark McEntire. In the song, she talks about what an amazing father he was to his four children, and the big dreams he had for all of them. She says that he was such an inspiration to her, and that is why she began singing.

Reba attributes her success to her father's love and pride for his children. She says, "Well that's when we took up singing / And his pride grew greater day by day /And I know his eyes grew misty / The night I sang up on the Opry stage". It is so touching to hear Reba get personal, and we can all relate to this song about a father's love.

"Daddy" is a beautiful way of saying "thank you" to her father for helping Reba get to where she is today. Unfortunately, after battling a long time illness, Clark McEntire passed away on Oct. 23. He must be so proud of the woman that Reba has become, because not only is she amazingly talented, she is an absolute inspiration to all of us!

Check out the video to hear Reba McEntire's touching tribute to her father, and you will be blown away!

LYRICS BELOW

My daddy is a rancher
He's wrangled cattle dang near all his life
He also liked to rodeo
He traveled around with four kids and a wife

Well his old ranch is rocky
But his ropes sail smooth for several years
He worked real hard
And roped real good
And tried to get his ranch out in the clear

He didn't want us kids to rodeo
He wanted more out of life for us
Maybe banking, or a lawyer
Or maybe even driving some old bus

Well that's when we took up singing
And his pride grew greater day by day
And I know his eyes grew misty
The night I sang up on the Opry stage

Now his ranch is so much bigger
Then the days when he first started
The grass grows now where none used to be
His roping got him started
Cattle prices made it better
And he's trying to get his ranch out in the clear

Five years ago September, he bought more steers and hung up all his ropes
But he often tells the stories about the rodeos he won and cowboy jokes
Well it's funny that the first big roping that he won some thirty years ago
Was the same day that I sang on the stage of the Grand Old Opry show

Now his ranch is so much bigger
Then the days when he first started
The grass grows now where none used to be
His roping got him started
Cattle prices made it better
And he's trying to get his ranch out in the clear

Now he's feeding cattle
Toting hay
And branding the Y.O.
And his hired hand's there to help him
And she also cooks their meals when they get home
They built their ranch together
And listening to the kids sing through the years

Well they worked real hard and roped real good and now they got their ranch
Out in the clear
Because when a family works together
They finally get their ranch out in the clear
Out in the clear
