[[ E-pub ]] ⇘ Reba: My Story ☔ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

I love when u read a memoir and you feel like the person you read about is sitting next to you telling the story instead of just reading it This one was like that for me and I enjoyed every page. [[ E-pub ]] ⇻ Reba: My Story ↮ Country music superstar Reba McEntire describes her Oklahoma childhood as a member of a cattle ranching family, her early days as a performer, her award winning musical achievements, the tragic loss of her eight band members, and her marriages I love Reba, she as close to country as a person can get, I love her attidude towards life, She always looks at things in a positive way and never lost sight of her dreams, even when at times she could have easily have given up, and when she had enemies that came against her she always did the right thing, this is what I loved most about Reba, is when she was asked to pay those certain people for that place she didn t falter, she held her head up high and paid even though she didn t have to, but I love Reba, she as close to country as a person can get, I love her attidude towards life, She always looks at things in a positive way and never lost sight of her dreams, even when at times she could have easily have given up, and when she had enemies that came against her she always did the right thing, this is what I loved most about Reba, is when she was asked to pay those certain people for that place she didn t falter, she held her head up high and paid even though she didn t have to, but she a woman with grace and because of her spirit is why God had Blessed her so abundently, so I like to Thank Reba for not onl y sharing her life with us, but also teaching me what it means to be a woman with such beautiful grace., She was honest with this book I went thru her early days on the ranch, getting started, a plane crash, and the birth and her son Shelby and her raising her son I figure there are many very good singers but she delivered on which songs to sing and the musicians that surrounded her It makes a lot of difference to have a good management team I wish she did a follow up book because this was written in 1994 Bravo It took me two long weeks to get through this book A biography is meant to be savored and not blown through I am amazed at her frankness and details of her life story in these pages Very good positive reading She seems like a really nice person to know I truly enjoyed this book Now I have to turn it over to my wife She is the one who loves musicians stories. I really really wanted to like this book I m a huge Reba fan but this book was just not the best read in town and for the first half of the book I found myself bored It picked up some in the middle but then again fell flat at the end.I think this book could have been better but there was just something off about the writing of it that made it hard to connect too.In the end I d probably give it 2.5 stars instead of 3 So I am rounding up. Reba s autobiography spans the period of her career prior to when I became a fan of her music, so for me, this book was an enjoyable learning experience In fact, Reba tends to focus on her life outside of music, during her time working on the family farm and competing in roedos, for much of the book However, if you think about where her music career was at the time of writing, those early experiences are what comprised the majority of her life.That is not to say that she does not provide insig Reba s autobiography spans the period of her career prior to when I became a fan of her music, so for me, this book was an enjoyable learning experience In fact, Reba tends to focus on her life outside of music, during her time working on the family farm and competing in roedos, for much of the book However, if you think about where her music career was at the time of writing, those early experiences are what comprised the majority of her life.That is not to say that she does not provide insight into her triumphs and tragedies during her early years as a country music performer Both her failed first marriage and the plane crash that took the lives of many of her band members were covered in depth, as they were milestones Likewise, Reba expresses gratitude for the accolades she has earned for her music, as well as the greatest event in her life, the birth of her son.All in all a great read, and some day, I suspect Reba will have enough material to include in a second volume It should be a happier one, as her marriage to Narvel has held strong and her career has reached above and beyond music and the few movies she d done to that point I will be sure to read it if such a book is ever written Reba is one of those country stars you think would have came up in the fairy tale life that would take her to the glittering lights of both the film scene and music scene but as you find out in Reba My Story, just like many of us in the world Reba didn t come from the fairy tale life, she had to fight, struggle and scrounge for the place in country music history she rightfully earned Reba built her way through good times and the bad and had enough inner strength and

but as you find out in Reba My Story, just like many of us in the world Reba didn t come from the fairy tale life, she had to fight, struggle and scrounge for the place in country music history she rightfully earned Reba built her way through good times and the bad and had enough inner strength and determination to continue on and say that she refused to give up on her dream no matter how much sorrow and how many road blocks she came to face Reba has been one of my top favorite country singers and I find her not only beautiful but inspiring This is a woman who has lived her life over and over again but even with that I was not ready for what this story would bring me, especially as right now I am in a tough spot in life Although the book is seriously outdated since it was published in 1994 it is a mesmerizing story of what it was like to grow up on a poor Oklahoma ranch, to have a loving life full of support and to see what it to Reba has been one of my top favorite country singers and I find her not only beautiful but inspiring This is a woman who has lived her life over and over again but even with that I was not ready for what this story would bring me, especially as right now I am in a tough spot in life Although the book is seriously outdated since it was published in 1994 it is a mesmerizing story of what it was like to grow up on a poor Oklahoma ranch, to have a loving life full of support and to see what it took to get this superstar off the ground when technology was limited At the same time the reader is given in an inside look into the music industry and as a result you really do get a sense of how little the world is even when it seems so big to the fans The writing was done superbly and sounded like Reba all the way humble, full of warmth, love and wisdom She is comedic and fun mostly but can be serious when the time arises for it And even though she mentions that no one should look to her as a role model but set their sights on God for it she just proves how much of a strong woman leader she is and why people continue to look up to her I know Reba might never see or read this review but she has inspired me in my own times of need right now while I have been blessed in this telling And may we continue to see her beautiful growth and outreach to those around her while enjoying her music for manyyears to come I actually became familiar with Reba not through her music, but from her sit com when my kids and I would watch it in reruns However, she is a very talented singer, and I was slowed down in reading this because every now and then I would unlock my computer screen and listen to a song on Youtube not all of them, of course , and of course stumbled across her latest video.Her biography starts when she is small her dad was a rodeo star, so she grew up around horses and cattle Who knew Not me, a I actually became familiar with Reba not through her music, but from her sit com when my kids and I would watch it in reruns However, she is a very talented singer, and I was slowed down in reading this because every now and then I would unlock my computer screen and listen to a song on Youtube not all of them, of course ,

fans know all of this sort of thing It has a good balance It is overall positive, but obviously not everything is great her career had a fairly slow start, she wrote this while married to her second husband, etc but she doesn t resort to scathing gossip or nastiness There was also tragedy, but I don t want to give any spoilers, other than the one that was all over the news when 8 members of her band died in a plane crash.What I would like is if she d write a sequel and bring us up to date from then until now, but of course that wouldn t be the same kind of tale
