Proud Mom Reba Opens Up About Connecting With Shelby


Legendary country music star, Reba McEntire has been known worldwide for over four decades as one of the queens of country music. But this redheaded superstar is so much more than that. 

Reba is a singer, producer, songwriter, actress, and most importantly – a mother. Her only child, Shelby Blackstock, just recently turned 26-years-old and has made a name for himself just like his mama. Another fact about Shelby: He’s an incredibly skilled race car driver! 

She’s one proud mama and she loves to watch Shelby race around the track and is even one of his biggest sponsors! (Her company, that is.) 

“I am Shelby’s proud sponsor..literally!” Reba laughs. 

While being a proud mom with her name on the side of his car, this true-grit country gal admits that there is something terrifying that lingers with her.

“It’s really exciting to watch him race,” she begins. “The terrifying time for me is ‘starts.’ I love to watch Shelby race.”

Of course any mother would get nervous watching her son compete in a sport that can be very dangerous at times, it’s wonderful to hear that she’s so supportive of his dreams and aspirations! 

Just like her son Shelby, Reba never stopped chasing her dreams and that’s what has made her such a successful country performer today!
