Country music super-star, Reba McEntire was in Music City Wednesday for the unveiling of her new exhibit, “Reba: All the Women I am”, opening this week at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The exhibit will feature mementos from all parts of her life. As the exhibit was being put together, Reba quickly realized that she hasn’t thrown out much of anything over the years.
“I am a pack rat, by nature, so I’ve been collecting these items and memorabilia for many years,” she admitted to Billboard. “I have kept things from my grade school days, my first stage outfits when I was performing, everything from my videos, films, and television. I’ve got it all collected. Justin McIntosh at Starstruck helped me put it all together, and took it over to the Country Music Hall of Fame. They are so sweet to do the exhibit, and I’m really excited to see what all they have done. It was a lot of work, but it’s going to be worth it.”
The exhibit features photographs and keepsakes from her childhood, some of the many awards she has won throughout her years, and tons of gowns and costumes. All of the items come from McEntire’s home, where she had organized and preserved them.”The curator said this is the most stuff any artist has ever brought in,” McEntire joked. “Where it’s going next? We are still looking.”
The exhibit will officially opened Friday, August 9 and will run until June 2014.
