Reba McEntire Pens Heartfelt Message About Being ‘Proud’ of Sister Susie for Major New Career Move

by Matthew Wilson

Reba McEntire isn’t just one of the biggest names in all of country music. She’s also a proud and doting sister as well, sharing praise for her sister Susie.

Susie McEntire Eaton is a Christian singer and has also gone into TV hosting as well. She is hosting the second season of “Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith” on the Circle Network. The show is Christian-based and focused on people recounting personal stories of faith. Reba McEntire herself will make an appearance later in the season.

On Twitter, she wrote, “So proud of my sister Susie! Tune in to Tuesday nights at 8 PM ET on @CircleAllAccess for Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith. I’ll be making an appearance on the show later this summer with our sister Alice.”

Reba McEntire’s Sister Opens Up About Faith

In an interview with Christian Post, Reba McEntire’s sister Susie had a lot to say about her own faith and upbringing as well.

Every person has a story to tell,” McEntire Eaton told The Christian Post.”They may not think theirs is as important as others, but it is. They have that story to share with the world. As we share those stories, other people can hear that and say, ‘I’m not alone,’ or, ‘Wow, I thought I had it really bad, but look at these people and what they’ve gone through, and yet they’re still standing and taking a step forward.’”

The show is based on a 2004 inspirational book, which also explored personal stories of faith.

“When Jesus would come upon someone that was having a hard time, He would simply tell them, ‘Stand up,’” McEntire Eaton continued. “So, I love stories that help people stand up. In every story, there’s something for each one of us to learn from.”

Later in the season, Susie and her sisters will discuss their own childhood experiences of faith growing up in Oklahoma. They will also return to the churches of their youth as well. The McEntire clan depended on faith more than ever last year. Their mother passed away after a harrowing and lengthy battle with cancer. The McEntire matriarch helped introduce them to music.

“We grew up singing Christian music, we were ‘The Singing McEntires.’ We cut our teeth in the honky-tonks and bars,” McEntire Eaton recalled. “We were way too young to be in those places, but we were the entertainment, and my mom felt like we were going to be able to learn so much being in those places. And we did.”
