We are going back 30 years for this country throwback with a Reba McEntire performance of “You Lie” in Austin, TX, as part of her “Reba in Concert” show.

The show was filmed at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, in 1990. The special concert features McEntire performing  “Fancy,” “You Lie,” “Whoever’s In New England” and more.

The special had an original release on VHS in August 1991. Its release was in dedication to seven of McEntire‘s band members, along with her tour manager, all of whom passed away tragically in a plane crash near San Diego in March of 1991.

“This show is very special to me because it features my friends that we lost in a plane crash 29 years ago,” McEntire says. “Their love for music and incredible talents deserve to be seen again, and I’m so glad that we’re getting the chance to stream this concert for the first time ever. I can’t wait to watch it and I hope they will feel all the love we still have for them.”

McEntire relaunched her 1994 Reba Live concert special on YouTube back in July.

Reba McEntire Counts Her Blessings on Thanksgiving

McEntire is one of many country music artists to express their gratitude during the Thanksgiving holiday. Despite the difficulty that 2020 has brought, she took the time via Twitter to remind her followers to count their blessings.

“Happy #Thanksgiving! I know this has been a hard year for so many of us, but I am taking time, as I do every day, to count my blessings – for my faith, my family, my friends and you,” McEntire wrote on Twitter. “What are you thankful for today?”

After posing the question, many of McEntire’s fans sent replies, agreeing with her about feeling blessed.

Often referred to as the queen of country music, McEntire has quite a lot to be thankful for this year. Before hosting the 2020 CMAs with Darius Rucker, she underwent a COVID-19 test. She did so after thinking she might test positive for the virus.

Thankfully, however, her results came back negative, and she was able to host the awards show with Rucker.
