Reba McEntire has partnered with more than 40 farms across the country as they host Reba-themed corn mazes in celebration of her upcoming lifestyle book Not That Fancy: Simple Lessons on Living, Loving, Eating, and Dusting Off Your Boots.
Reba said in a statement, “While l admit being in a corn maze is one of the more unique things I’ve ever been invited to be a part of, I couldn’t be more excited to be involved with some of the things that matter most to me – farming, family, and friends.”
She added, “Growing up on a ranch in Oklahoma, I know how important agriculture is, and I love being involved with something that brings more people out to farms across the country for good, wholesome fun!”
While navigating the mazes, guests will look for clues and play an interactive game quizzing them on how much they know about the country music legend. Participants will enjoy photo ops, music, and prizes along the way. The farms, designed by The MAiZE Inc. in 23 states across the U.S., will reach more than a million visitors during the fall season.
Reba is just one of a number of superstars on the new tribute album to The Judds, called A Tribute to the Judds, which will be available on October 27.
Artists on the project also include Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Cody Johnson, Ashley McBryde, Jelly Roll, who performs “Love Can Build A Bridge” with The Fisk Jubilee singers.
In May, Dolly Parton revealed to ET Canada that she and Lainey Wilson would release a duet in honor of The Judds. Dolly said when asked about it, “With Lainey Wilson… I just did with her; we’ve got a song we did for The Judds. They’re doing an album for The Judds for mental illness and some of the problems that [Naomi Judd] had.”
She added, “So they’re doing a whole album of the songs, and I got to do ‘Mama He’s Crazy’ with Lainey. I don’t even know her. So, I’m going to get a chance to visit.”
The Judds were inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame in April of 2022; the day before that (4/30), Naomi Judd died after she committed suicide.
