20 Fascinating Facts About Reba McEntire
While on tour for her 1990 album, she suffered a great loss when one of her band’s two charter jet planes crashed near San Diego, Calif. on March 16, 1991. Eight members of her band died in the accident, along with the pilot and co-pilot.
“She was very close to all of them,” a spokeswoman said at the time. “Some of them had been with her for years. Reba is totally devastated by this. It’s like losing part of your family.”
Despite the tragedy, she took the stage at the 63rd Academy Awards just days later, on March 25, to perform her Best Original Song nominee. Her sixteenth album, For My Broken Heart, was released in October and dedicated to those who perished in the accident.
