It seems as though everything Reba McEntire touches turns up roses. From a stellar singing career in country music that has spanned four decades, to the hit prime time sitcom, Reba, where McEntire starred in the leading role, her success seems to grow more with every endeavor. Reba McEntire shares what she believes is the secret to her amazing career.
In an interview with Fox411,Reba McEntire says her faith in the Lord is what guides her life. Reba prays to God and follows what she feels he asks her to do.
“[Faith] guides me on everything I do. I ask for guidance, I ask the Lord to give me wisdom when I speak, when I think and I always try to be positive and say nice things and it gives me strength throughout every minute and every day.”
Speaking of her song “Pray for Peace,” Reba McEntire says the words came to her as she was outside praying one day.
“It’s a song that was started 2-3 years ago when I was out walking. My front yard is my church and that’s where I go out and I talk to God…so ‘Pray for Peace’ came to my mind and I started praying for peace. A month or two later I’m like, ‘Lord, what have you got in mind for me? What’s my next project?’ And He said, ‘I want you to pray for peace.'”
After “Pray for Peace” was written and recorded, Reba says she felt that God was asking her to give the song away, so she released it on YouTube. However, Reba McEntire decided to add the song on her latest album, the first in five years, entitled “Love Somebody.” To Reba, the song is a gift from God that she wants to share with fans.

Faith does not only lead Reba in her professional life, but her personal life as well. McEntire enjoys helping worthy causes, and is currently working with Outnumber Hunger. As a Christian, Reba McEntire’s view on the gay community is refreshing.
“…if [coming out] makes them happy I don’t see a problem with it at all. We’re supposed to love everybody, not be so judgmental. If they’re happy, then I’m happy for them and I hope they don’t get too much flak or criticism [over who they are] because they’re talented singers.”
Though Reba McEntire is a gorgeous woman on the outside (come on, who wouldn’t love that hair!) her true beauty shines from the inside out.
