Reba McEntire Interview: On New Outnumber Hunger Campaign & New Album “Love Somebody”
Last week I was so excited to be invited to a intimate lunch with country music legend Reba McEntire. The event was held at the Soho Houses in Chelsea. Reba is partnering with General Mills and Feeding America for the Outnumber Hunger Campaign which secure meals for people all over the U.S.
Before Reba arrived we were treated to lunch, there were two different kinds of Caesar salads (which I couldn’t touch because of my seafood allergy) but there was an amazing quinoa salad that I couldn’t get enough of! There was also avocado on a heavyweight multigrain toast that was so good, French fries and a grilled cheese that I didn’t end up eating because the avocado toast and quinoa salad did their job! It was a really delicious lunch.
I must admit, it was completely awesome being in a room with such a legendary artist. I have so much respect for her–first she is super talented, has a strong faith and most of all she is down to earth. She never once gave me the celebrity vibe and it felt like even for those few minutes we were all friends hanging out to chat about the Outnumber Hunger Campaign and her new album “Love Somebody”.
What is the outnumber hunger campaign?
Everyday people like you and me who use General Mills products (think Cheerios, Yoplait, Nature Valley and more) can secure five meals for your local food bank by entering a product code at OutnumberHunger.com!
General Mills is no stranger to donating food as they have donated 230 pounds of food in the last 30 years. I volunteered at a food pantry for 7+ years before I had my kids and they depend solely on donations. This is a great and very easy way to get involved and make an impact on your community.
In addition Reba talked about her first album release in 5 years called “Love Somebody“. She even mentioned that she recorded the album live with a band in Nashville–I had no idea artists were still doing that! That alone just raised my respect level of her a few levels! She will also be touring with fellow amazing country artists such as Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw to name a few.
