When celebrities have harrowing brushes with death, it always captivates the public. However, the fatal plane crash that killed seven members of country music star Reba McEntire's band in 1991 was a tragedy that haunts the singer to this day. The story of how Reba narrowly missed being on the flight that killed ten people is tragic, and highlights how easy it is to lose everything in a single moment.

Reba McEntire is a country music singer who was at her most famous in the late 1980s and early 1990s, right when the crash occurred. At the time, she was one of country music's top female artists, along with other powerhouses such as Dolly Parton.
