Reba McEntire Named Farm Bureau Keynote Speaker
Iconic entertainer Reba McEntire is no stranger to agriculture—she grew up in rural Oklahoma on her family’s 8,000 acre ranch. Now, this multi-media mogul and mom is a household name with a successful career that spans across music, television, film, theater and retail.
Reba will join AFBF President Zippy Duvall during the Closing General Session on Monday, January 8, 2018, for a Q&A Keynote touching on her rural roots, family, career, and, of course, country music.
