In a heartwarming display of camaraderie, country music icon Reba McEntire recently took to her Twitter/X account to show her unwavering support for a fellow talent in the industry. The recipient of McEntire’s endorsement is none other than the impressive country singer and rodeo queen, Kylie Frey, who recently graced the stage of America’s Got Talent Season 18.

Reba McEntire Reposts Kylie Frey’s Audition

Frey’s audition, which aired on the August 1 episode of AGT, showcased her remarkable talents as both a singer and a performer. Hailing from a rodeo background in Opelousas, Louisiana, Frey delivered an original song titled “Horses In Heaven” that paid a heartfelt tribute to her grandfather.

However, what truly caught the attention of fans and the industry was Reba McEntire’s support for the aspiring star. In a tweet/post that accompanied the reposted video of Frey’s AGT audition, McEntire wrote a simple yet impactful message that not only highlighted the special bond shared by women who’ve embraced the rodeo lifestyle, but also demonstrated McEntire’s genuine and nurturing nature within the country music community.

As an industry veteran with an illustrious career spanning decades, McEntire’s words carry considerable weight and encouragement. Her acknowledgment of Frey’s AGT performance not only brings attention to a deserving talent but also underscores the importance of lifting each other up and fostering a sense of unity among artists.

Kylie Frey Takes Inspiration From Reba McEntire During Her AGT Audition

Country singer and rodeo queen Frey’s recent audition on AGT not only showcased her impressive talent. Additionally, it also revealed a profound connection to none other than the legendary McEntire who recently showed her support on Twitter/X.

Surprisingly, Frey explained that Reba McEntire had been a driving force behind her decision to pursue her aspirations in the music world. The influence of McEntire’s style and artistry was evident in Frey’s performance, as her stage presence and vocal delivery echoed the timeless qualities that have made McEntire an icon.


What makes this even more significant is McEntire’s own journey through the music industry. Like Frey, McEntire also began her career with a deep connection to the rodeo world, and her determination and talent eventually led her to become a country music powerhouse.

As Frey’s AGT journey unfolds, the chance of seeing her perform with Reba McEntire later in the competition, adds another layer of anticipation to her story. Since McEntire is a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice, there’s a strong possibility that she’ll attend the AGT finale to promote The Voice.

McEntire’s involvement with The Voice as a coach and mentor presents a unique opportunity for a heartfelt reunion between mentor and protégé, should Frey make her mark on AGT and end up in the finale.
