It was 26 years ago (March 16) that Reba suffered a deep loss when eight members of her band lost their lives in a fatal plane crash. The accident occurred shortly after the plane carrying the band had taken off from Brown Field, a private airport outside San Diego. Reba recalled the incident in her 1994 memoir, Reba; My Story.
In an interview with Country Weekly, Reba revealed, “I found solace in the Lord and in my music. Even after I finished writing about it and rereading it hundreds of ties, it never got easier.”
Remembering her band today, Reba posted a message about the crash on her social media accounts.
“How time flies,” she wrote in the post. “26 years ago our friends went to sit on the right hand side of God. I love and miss them. Can you imagine the wonderful music they’re playing up there? And Jim making sure everything is set up just right?:))) God takes the best. He has great taste. #loveandmissthem”
