Reba McEntire Throws It Back to Big-Haired Glory Days Alongside Loretta Lynn in Awesome Pic

It’s nice to see Reba McEntire back in good spirits after that scary incident this past week. A freak accident left her and some crew members stuck in an old building after the collapse of an unstable staircase. After reassuring fans that she and her crew are a-okay, it seems the star’s focus is back where it belongs: on good friends and good music. That’s something we Outsiders can definitely get behind.

Actually, Reba seems to find herself in a rather nostalgic mood at the moment. After releasing a brand new remix of a past cover from ’91, the star also took to Twitter to share an epic throwback photo. It shows Reba beside the self-proclaimed “one and only country music legend,” Loretta Lynn.

Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn Share Sweet Moment from their Friendship

The caption on Reba McEntire’s post is short and sweet. She simply states “I sure do love this woman!” and tags @LorettaLynn. That’s not why fans are flocking to the comments, however. No, the best feature of the post is the photo that it’s accompanied by. It throws it back to Reba and Loretta adorned in beautiful crystals rocking that classic decade’s hair. There’s. So. Much. Hair.

Fans are eating it right up, too. Not the hair, but rather the nostalgia…

@KareBear_Kare writes: “2 Queens of Country. Love to see it!”

@ester_connie shares: “Love you both & have been a fan of you both almost 58 yrs now and will always”

Some fans even shared their own sweet throwbacks to catching the Country Queens on tour back in the 70s.

We’ll bet a few of our Outsiders shared similar ‘do’s back in the day, or maybe even looked to Reba McEntire and Loretta Lynn directly for “hair-inspo.”

The Remix

On the opposite end of the spectrum from nostalgia comes the idea of a remix. Reba McEntire actually just released a brand new remix of “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.”

She worked on the remix with Eric Kupper. Although she put out her own cover of the country classic back in ’91, the original actually comes from another duo. The song was written and composed in ’72 by songwriter Bobby Russell and then sung by his then-wife, Vicki Lawrence.

Before you dive into the new version, you can also check out this ’91 performance from Reba in Nashville that’s been remastered in HD. A recent Tweet details where to stream the remix, while also sharing some of its most widely recognized lyrics.
