HOUSE PLAYLIST

One of my favorite parts of country music is how it draws in so many diverse talents to produce some of music’s most memorable songs. That’s why I’ve created this new Morning Hangover #MixedDrinks Playlist on Spotify to celebrate some of my favorite collaborations and country music duets including: FGL & Nelly, Bebe Rexha, Jason DeRulo & the Backstreet Boys, Thomas Rhett + Maren Morris, Kenny Chesney with Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley teaming-up with Carrie Underwood, Mick Jagger, Alabama & Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert with TI, Jason Aldean and Ludacris, Blake Shelton feat Trace Adkins, Kelsea Ballerini and The Chainsmokers, Chris Lane + Tori Kelly and so much more.

The pair went on a visual journey as well, walking the halls in Reba’s office and reflecting on her illustrious career as a singer, businesswoman, actress across film, television & Broadway.
