8Great: Reba’s 8Great Road-Trippin’ Songs


Now’s the time to head out for a fall foliage road trip, and see trees all over the country burst from lush greens to bright reds, oranges and yellows.

An awe-inspiring drive like this needs the perfect soundtrack. And we think the lush tunes of Reba McEntire would fit the bill perfectly. We asked Reba in a recent interview if she would select some of her favorites for you all to turn into a road rockin’ playlist. Here’s Reba’s very own 8Great!
