Tenille Arts confirmed a rumour that was circulating the southeast.
“I’m going to be opening for Reba at her show in Minnesota.”
The Reba in question is country music legend Reba McEntire, who is playing at the Mystic Amphitheatre in Prior Lake, Minnesota on August 11th.
“I'm like pinching myself,” Arts said. “I didn’t really believe that it was real.”
Arts found out from one of her managers by text message around a week ago there was an offer to open for Reba.
“I was like, you’re texting me this? I couldn’t believe it. And then they just confirmed it last night.”
Arts is anticipating the chance to perform for 30 minutes as the opening act for Reba. She is also hoping to have the chance to meet the legend herself.
“I know we’re going to be backstage, and I’m gonna try to sneak my mom back there too,” Arts joked.
The performance is coming up ahead of the release of her latest single in the United States, which is scheduled for August 27th.
