Last.fm Trends: Reba McEntire Hunts For 14th ACM Win
Country Music Hall of Fame inductee Reba McEntire continues her illustrious career with a nomination at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Hoping to win the award for Top Female Vocalist, Last.fm Trends takes a look at what Reba McEntire has been up to recently.
Not many musicians are as prolific as Reba McEntire. With twenty six studio albums and various other releases to her name, she has conjured up 1,742,893 scrobbles on Last.fm - one of the highest under the ‘Country’ tag.
2010 saw the release of her latest album – All the Women I Am, which peaked at #3 in the US Top Country Albums chart and #7 in the US Billboard 200. Since its release on November 9th, the album has been scrobbled 20,530 times, with the lead single “Turn On The Radio” being scrobbled 13,649 times.
Despite this, fans are showing an affinity with older material. “Turn On The Radio” only comes in at #18 in her latest Top Weekly Tracks chart and is the highest placed from All the Women I Am. 1991′s “Fancy” comes out on top.
Going up against her at the Academy of Country Music Awards is Taylor Swift, arguably the biggest current female country artist in the world, with a huge 32,910,835 scrobbles.
