Reba Celebrates Her Biggest No. 1
Reba McEntire celebrated the success of her four-week No. 1 single, “Consider Me Gone,” at an industry party in Nashville, Jan. 25.
“Consider Me Gone,” marks a milestone for Reba, as it has spent more weeks at No. 1 than any of her previous chart-toppers. “It’s really hard to put into words what that means to me,” Reba told reporters before the event. “It’s pretty overwhelming. I give total credit to the songwriters. We are all really thrilled.” During the party, songwriters Steve Diamond and Marv Green were presented with plaques and honors from Country Weekly, the CMA, Music Row magazine and others. Reba had her first No. 1 in 1983 with “Can’t Even Get the Blues,” and has scored several multi-week chart-toppers during her career, including "For My Broken Heart" and “Is There Life Out There.”
