Never has one dress received so much publicity in Country Music than Reba McEntire’s red dress she wore to the 1993 CMA Awards.

“I got more press off that dress than if I’d won Entertainer of the Year,” said Reba.

It’s remarkable that by today’s standards, this dress would hardly receive a second glance on the red carpet. But nonetheless, this iconic red gown now sits in the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Watch the unforgettable duet of “Does He Love You” with Linda Davis that turned heads at the CMAs back in 1993, and a hilarious interview with Ralph Emery where Reba dishes on what it was like to wear that legendary red dress.

1. Big, soft curls

Use a thick curling iron to keep your curls bouncy and beautiful.


2. Small, messy curls

Run a brush or your fingers through your curls for this effortless style.


3. Pin straight

Try sleek and chic.


4. Beachy waves

Keep it chill and relaxed.


5. Side braid

Go three-strand or fishtail, messy or prim and put together.


6. Two braids

Keep them low and loose for this cool country look.


7. Low, messy ponytail

Alright Shania Twain haters. Be gone! Yesterday was the greatest day of all time for Shania fans. The Man! I Feel Like a Woman singer is back on tour. In honor of her return, we’re looking at 11 reasons why Shania Twain is still the one.

1. Shania Twain started singing at bars at the age of eight to try to help pay her family’s bills; she often earned 20 dollars between midnight and one in the morning performing for remaining customers after the bar had finished serving.

2. Twain spent some time working in her stepfather’s reforestation business, where she couldn’t wear any makeup, use deodorant, or shampoo. She could only bathe in the lake, and learned how to be rugged. If that ain’t country we don’t know what is!

3. When Twain’s mother and stepfather died in a car accident, she took in her siblings and raised them until they were old enough to live on their own. She supported them by earning money performing at the nearby Deerhurst Resort.
