CMT will honor the one and only Reba McEntire with the Artist of a Lifetime award at the upcoming 10th Annual CMT Artists of the Year event.

Reba joins previous Artist of a Lifetime award recipients, including Loretta Lynn (2018), Shania Twain (2016), Kenny Rogers (2015), and Merle Haggard (2014).

“I have loved entertaining people since I was a little girl and after being in the music business more than 40 years, I’m still having so much fun! For CMT to recognize me as the ‘Artist of A Lifetime’ is pretty special,” Reba shared in a statement.

The iconic entertainer will receive the award on Wednesday, October 16 when CMT Artists of the Year airs live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett will be crowned Artists of the Year during the live broadcast.

Performers and presenters for the 2019 CMT Artists of the Year special will be announced at a later date.
