Reba to be honored with statue in her Oklahoma hometown


Reba McEntire is getting her very own statue.

The country singer/songwriter will be honored in her hometown of McAlester, Oklahoma.

According to the McAlester News-Capital, the statue is expected to be 6 feet tall with a base of about 4-5 feet, bringing it to over 10-feet total.

“I get calls all the time from people around the country asking what we have Reba McEntire-wise,"McAlester Tourism Coordinator Eddie Gray told the paper Monday. “I have nothing to offer. This is a void we have to fill.”

The statue cost was an estimated $60,000 and it will be in the city’s downtown area.

“It would be a driver of tourism,” Gray said. “It would get people off the highway to our downtown.”
