Reba McEntire will perform in June in
Sparta, Ky., at the Country Stampede.

The powerful female duo will join CMA and Academy of Country Music (ACM) award nominees Darryl Worley and Terri Clark, along with fan favorites Chris Cagle, Clay Walker, veteran artists Chris Ledoux, Mark Chestnutt, Joe Diffie and Neal McCoy on the festival mainstage. Up-and-coming musicians taking the stage include Andy Griggs, Craig Morgan and Cowboy Crush.
McEntire is currently climbing the charts with her most recent single “Somebody” from her 2003 release “Room To Breathe,” which also features the hit single “I’m Gonna Take That Mountain.” In addition to two Grammy Awards, she has earned musical and performance honors too numerous to mention. During her 23-year recording career, she’s charted one quintuple platinum album, “Greatest Hits Vol. 2,” a quadruple platinum album, “For My Broken Heart,” as well as multiple triple-platinum, double-platinum, platinum and gold albums. McEntire also is the star of hit WB Network television comedy, “Reba,” and earned accolades for her Broadway performance as “Annie” in “Annie Get Your Gun.”
McBride was crowned 2003 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year for the second consecutive year and the third time in her career this past November.
The four-day festival will feature more than 30 hours of country music and is expected to attract nearly 140,000 music fans to the $152-million venue. Title sponsor Meijer is offering a $50 single-day pass for $30 at its Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana locations.
