Reba McEntire’s Father Continues Recovery Following Stroke
Reba McEntire’s father, 84-year-old Clark McEntire, continues to make progress following a stroke, which left him in a coma earlier this year. All smiles, Reba described her father’s road to recovery.
“He’s doing very well. They’ve moved him from the hospital to the rehab center,” Reba tells The Boot. “I’m not kidding you. We have planned the funeral three times. We’ve selected songs. We’ve picked out where he’s going to be buried, and now he’s just done a complete turnaround.'”
Reba had told her father she was going to be inducted just two days before he slipped into a coma, and she wasn’t sure he would be alive for the official ceremony later this year. Now she has hopes the three-time World Champion Steer Roper will be able to make it.
Reba wrapped up the latest leg of her tour dates with George Strait and Lee Ann Womack and has plans to spend much of her summer with her parents in Oklahoma, before heading back on the road this fall.
