Reba McEntire will be honored with the Artist of a Lifetime award at the CMT Artists of the Year celebration on Oct. 16 at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
“I have loved entertaining people since I was a little girl and after being in the music business more than 40 years, I’m still having so much fun,” says Reba. “For CMT to recognize me as the Artist of a Lifetime is pretty special.”
This year’s Artists of the Year celebration will honor five artists—Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett—and will feature surprise musical pairings and guests.
Merle Haggard received the inaugural Artist of a Lifetime award in 2014, followed by Kenny Rogers (2015), Shania Twain (2016) and Loretta Lynn (2018).
The Artists of the Year celebration will air on CMT on Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET.
