Reba McEntire has been topping the country charts for over five decades! The singer-slash-actress is on a press tour to promote her new ventures. Earlier this month, she celebrated the 30th anniversary of her Rumor Has It album by reissuing it with new content.
Rumor Has It Came Out 30 Years Ago
Big hair, shoulder pads, oversized hats. The cover photo for Reba McEntire’s Rumor Has It is so 1990s. But the songs on the album are timeless classics. The first single from the album, “You Lie” reached number 1 on the charts. Surprisingly, the uber-popular “Fancy” peaked at #8.
The 2020 reissue of Rumor Has It actually has two new takes on “Fancy.” One version is a live performance from the Ryman Auditorium. Another version is a dance remix. Reba McEntire performed “Fancy” on Good Morning America earlier this week.
In anticipation of the Rumor Has It reissue, Reba McEntire took to her Instagram feed to have some fun with her fans. If you follow her social media, you know that the vocalist loves to troll old photos of herself from the 80s and 90s.
Using the effects tab on Instagram, fans can insert their face into the Rumor Has It cover, big hat and all! Check it out:
