We knew Reba McEntire was going to be a superstar the moment she walked on the Opry stage and belted out Patsy Cline's "Sweet Dreams".

In 1997, the Grand Ole Opry was introduced to McEntire, a new and talented face. The fresh-faced artist's Opry debut was one for the books, as she put her heart and soul into a tribute to the late Patsy Cline, with "Sweet Dreams".

"Sweet Dreams" was written and recorded by Don Gibson in 1955. Following the song's success, Cline took her hand at the tune, and recoded her rendition in 1963 on her to-be-released album, Faded Love. In a tragic turn of events, Cline was killed in a plane crash before she had a chance to release the album, therefore it was never released. 

In 1988, "Sweet Dreams" was finally released from the album, Patsy Cline the Last Sessions, a tribute to the iconic country star. 

So when it was McEntire's turn to perform at the Opry for the first time, it was no surprise she chose such a classic song. 

What a beautiful tribute to the legendary Patsy Cline, we're sure she was smiling down upon McEntire. 

Check out the video below to see McEntire's stunning rendition of "Sweet Dreams". 

LYRICS BELOW 

Sweet Dreams of you
Every night I go through
Why can't I forget you
And start my life new
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

You don't love me
It's plain
I should have known
I'd never wear your ring
I should hate you
The whole night through
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

Why can't I forget the past
And start loving someone new
Instead of having sweet dreams about you
Instead of having sweet dreams about you
