Reba McEntire previews new exhibit at Country Music HOF

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Fans of country music legend Reba McEntire can see her life up close, including her very first pair of cowboy boots, at a new exhibit, inside the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

The memories brought tears to the country singer's eyes as she spoke about a condolence letter written by her niece in 1991, following the plane crash that killed eight of McEntire's band members.

"That hit hard. I forgot I had [the letter]. It was in the old stuff. Boy, that hit hard," McEntire said.

The exhibit, called "Reba: All the Women I am," lays out the Grammy-Award winner's life and career, including trophies, shoes, letters, and of course her costumes.

McEntire said she thinks most people will come to the exhibit to see the famous red dress she wore during the 1993 Country Music Awards.

"It's probably the most famous outfit that I have. It got the most attention, and the most press after I wore it. My dad even thought I had it on backwards," she said.

The exhibit opens Friday, and will be open for 10 months.
