For the second time in as many weeks, Reba McEntire has been forced to postpone a concert due to illness. On March 8, McEntire shared on social media that her show scheduled at Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, was postponed due to her having laryngitis. The show was rescheduled for March 16.

But, unfortunately Reba’s sickness has worsened and she has been forced to once again reschedule her concert at the Parx Casino. The singer took to social media Friday night to reveal that her laryngitis has turned into a strep infection.

Reba is known as one of the hardest working women in show business. She boasts a resume that most women in the industry only dream about. Platinum selling albums, a hit television show, a clothing line at Dillards, an ACM Awards hosting gig….Reba has done it all. So, it’s fair to say that the talented lady perhaps needs a break to recover. But, she doesn’t have long to do so.

The legendary female vocalist is due to host the 2019 ACM Awards show live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 7. It will be Reba’s 16th time to host the event!

McEntire will release a new album titled STRONGER THAN THE TRUTH  just two days before the ACM Awards. The highly anticipated album is a follow-up to Reba’s Grammy Award-winning gospel album, Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope. When choosing songs for her latest project, Reba stuck with the formula she used when choosing songs for the gospel project: Record songs that speak to the heart.

“When I started selecting songs for this album, I stuck with that same formula – go with the songs that touch my heart, and hopefully when you hear me singing it, they’ll touch yours too,” Reba said. “That honesty once again revealed itself. I grew up on an 8,000-acre family ranch singing at dance halls, honky-tonks and rodeos with my brother and sister. STRONGER THAN THE TRUTH  takes me back to that kind of country music that I grew up with. I haven’t gotten to do that in a while, so I’m thrilled to pieces to release this new music.”
