Reba Pays Tribute to Loretta with “You’re Lookin’ at Country”

0  comments

Loretta Lynn is certainly one of the living legends of country music. She, together with the likes of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, and others, continues to inspire budding artists in the music industry. To mention, Reba McEntire, another country music icon, has long been inspired by these country music legends.

So, when the time came Reba got the chance to honor them, she never hesitated to do so. As a matter of fact, Reba was among the tribute artists for Loretta Lynn in the 2003 Kennedy Center Honors.

For almost 60 years of a colorful music career, Loretta is one of the few women, who has withstood time with her inspiring story and immense talent. She is one of country music’s shining stars. In a genre dominated by men, Loretta stood out as the shining beacon of hope for women who dreamt of being on the spotlight.

With these achievements, Kennedy Center Honors chose her as one of its honorees in 2003. And, Reba McEntire got to be invited to render a tribute to the “coal miner’s daughter.” (Interestingly, Reba is one of the honorees of the same award this year which will happen in December.)

To note, as stated by Kennedy Center Chairman David R. Rubenstein in 2016,

“The Kennedy Center Honors celebrates the spectacular talents of artists whose brilliance has left a lasting impact on our society.”

In addition, each ceremony features performances from selected musical tributes. All these artists are not revealed to both viewers and honorees until the day of the show. As for Loretta, Reba rendered her 1971 hit, “You’re Lookin’ at Country” to which surprised the former. The latter then also made a point to personalize the song a bit. At one point of the song, Reba sang:

“If you’re lookin’ at Loretta, you’re lookin’ at country.”

True enough, both Loretta and Reba are amazing ladies, and they deserve to be called a “National Treasure.”
