Why were they there?
There is no official word on why Reba McEntire, Rex Linn, and others were at the dilapidated building. There is speculation that the tour was part of an upcoming project for the singer. Taste of Country notes that Akota is just 16-miles south of Reba’s hometown Chockie.
People take to the comment section of local news anchor, Lisanne Anderson. Many of the first comments were from other media outlets asking for permission to use the video. Others show concern about the situation. It seems that everyone is well aware that this could have been worse. Luckily, all it took was a ladder to get the group out of the second-story window.
Reba McEntire takes to Twitter as this is written to let her fans know that everything is okay. She still doesn’t explain why she and her group were at the old building. She expresses gratitude that no one was seriously injured. The country legend writes, “We were safely evacuated from the building thanks to the quick response from the Akota fire and police departments.”
