Cowgirls Don’t Cry — but they might on Saturday: Reba’s dad to be honored by the National Cowboy Museum

With Sunday’s 54th ACM Awards behind her, Reba McEntire has yet another major awards show coming up this weekend.

“My Daddy, Clark McEntire, is being inducted into the Hall of Great Westerners at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City this Saturday!” she shared on social media on Wednesday, along with a link to a feature article from the Tulsa World.

To understand just how prestigious the honor is, you only need consider who’s also being inducted in 2019: actor Kevin CostnerDallas star Howard Keel, and country hitmaker Michael Martin Murphey, among others.

“It’s going to be a really, really huge night for our whole family,” Reba’s younger sister Susie McEntire tells the publication.

It’s not the first time Reba’s dad has been honored by the museum, either: In 1979, he was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame as a steer roper.

Clark McEntire won world steer roping championships in 1957, 1958, and 1961. He died in 2014 at the age of 86.
