Reba first partnered with Dillard’s department stores in 2005 to launch her clothing line. Since then, the Reba brand has grown to include a wide variety of products. She gives credit to the team she works with on the success and growth of the Reba line.

“Well thank God I’ve got a great team here at Starstruck and all the vendors that are so creative and help us with thinking up new things to do on the Reba brand and the Reba line,” Reba said.“We’ve got the Reba wear, the clothes, the shoes, the bed, bath, table linens, the dishes, the furniture, the home furnishings and the specialty items, which are in the bridal department there at Dillard’s.”

Reba also has a line of luggage and several new products in the works. Also new from Reba is her latest single, “Somebody’s Chelsea.” Reba co-wrote the single, the first time she has had a hand in writing a single since her 1985 top 5 hit “Only In My Mind.” Reba found inspiration for the song while watching a movie.

“’Somebody’s Chelsea’ is a song that I co-wrote with Liz Henberg and Will Robinson,” Reba said. “I got the idea [for the song] from the movie ‘P.S. – I Love You’ [with] Harry Connick Jr. and Hilary Swank. About ¾ of the way through the movie – maybe almost at the end – they’re sitting there in the booth in the bar café and she’s telling him how special her husband who had passed away was and I don’t know if his name is Frank or whatever, but Harry Connick Jr. says, ‘Why don’t you love me? Why can’t I take his place?’ She [tells him], ‘Because he was this, he was that.’ Harry Connick Jr. gets up to leave and she [asks], ‘Where are you going?’ He [tells her], ‘I’m going to go find somebody because one of these days, I want to be somebody’s Frank. I [gasped] and I got on the computer and emailed Liz saying, ‘This is a great idea for a song!’ So she got Will to help us with it and we wrote “Somebody’s Chelsea.”

Reba is gearing up for a fall tour but first, she will perform “America The Beautiful” on Sunday at the Brickyard 400, at the Indianapolis 400, presented by
