It was a Who?s Who of country music divas last night in Hollywood as Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and Leanne Rimes united to celebrate country?s favorite redhead, Reba McEntire at a taping of CMT?s ?Giants?.
Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson was there for all the emotion, and asked Reba how she felt hearing all the acclaim. ?Was it exhilarating, emotional, all those things together??
Reba told Shaun it was ?Very emotional. I was laughin’, I was cryin’, I used up a whole box of Kleenex!?
Despite selling 50 million albums and releasing 33 number one hits, Reba?s loyalty and devotion is what her friends really admire.
Dolly Parton told Shaun, ?She’s good to us and we’re good to her and we’re like family, and so we couldn’t say no to Reba.?
Faith Hill noted, ?She treats everyone with such respect.?
Trisha Yearwood credits her idol with helping her through her difficult 1999 divorce from Robert Reynolds. ?She called me and she said, ?You?re in my prayers, in my thoughts.? Those things mean the world to you when you?re going through that stuff.?
Reba?s friend for 25 years, Barbara Mandrell remembers the day she turned to McEntire after eight of her bandmates died in a San Diego plane crash.
?She called,? Barbara told Shaun, ?and we prayed together.?
