It was on Jan. 19, 1990 that Reba McEntire made her Hollywood debut in the movie ‘Tremors.’
Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward and Michael Gross were the stars of the film, which told the story of a small town being attacked by underground creatures.
Reba played Heather Gummer, a tough country gal who is part of a survivalist couple who defends the town from the deadly creatures. Although the role was small, it was a first for McEntire who had long before been showing her acting skill in her over-the-top music videos.
She would go on to do 6 more films, and slew of television shows including Reba, which she was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress.
What’s next for Reba in Hollywood? We’ll have to wait and see! Watch the original trailer for the film Tremors below:
Now that he’s back in the spotlight, Garth Brooks continues to give his fans thanks and show his gratitude and every chance he gets.
Last week at a concert in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Garth put on a show to remember. One fan in particular, Nathan Putnam, managed to capture Garth’s attention when he waved a photo in a air.
To his surprise, Garth recognized the photo as the gentleman handed to him. According to LiftBump, the two had taken the photo back in 2007 at the Oklahoma Special Olympics games. A tearful Brooks accepted the photo, along with 3 medals the Nathan won at the Special Olympics.
Brooks then returned the favor by wearing the medals, and handing Putnam his guitar while singing “That Summer.” What a truly special moment for Garth and one of his devoted fans.
