Reba McEntire reveals surprising confession about her son Shelby

Reba McEntire, beloved music artist and actress, is loved for her down-to-earth demeanor.

This attitude was not created to sell albums but instead began in her country roots. Her country lifestyle would also play a huge part in how she raised her only son, and in a recent interview, she made a rare confession about family life. Reba is one of those rare gems in music, she’s honestly so chill and so down to Earth. The 67-year-old music icon grew up on a family ranch in Chockie, Oklahoma – and she is country through and through. When not in school, she played in a family band or helped with the cattle. Her father and grandfather were decorated rodeo champs – Reba was an avid barrel racer. Look what God gave us 25 years ago!!! Happy Birthday Shelby!! @shelbyblackstock #bestdayever #thankyouGod #thankyounarvel #momclubPosted by Reba McEntire on Monday, February 23, 2015

Growing up in the countryside came with certain values and many of these Reba carried with her later in life. “Mama and Daddy always said to me, ‘If you tell somebody you’re going to be somewhere at a certain time, you show up,” she mentioned. “That’s the way I was raised.”

By 1990, she was already incredibly famous and had just become a first-time mother to her son, Shelby. She knew that she would have to be careful to raise him right despite having a celebrity for a mom. Reba made some tough decisions but stuck to her beliefs when raising Shelby. “When we would play games or cards, I’d never let Shelby win,” she said.

“He wouldn’t have learned anything that way. I always told Shelby, ‘I’ll always love you, but I want other people to like you. So don’t be a little jerk. Don’t be a spoiled brat.’”
