Oklahoma-born and bred country music superstars Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire will reunite on television next month, this time on an upcoming episode of Reba’s sitcom “Malibu Country.”
“Blake Shelton will appear with us on Malibu Country, playing my brother on the March 1st episode at 8:30pm EST on ABC. Can’t wait!!!” McEntire announced today on Twitter (@reba).
“Malibu Country” airs at 7:30 p.m. Fridays on ABC. McEntire plays Reba Gallagher, a once-promising country singer who put her career on hold to raise a family. When she discovers her musician husband has been cheating on her, she opts to ignore Tammy Wynette’s advice and not stand by her man. Instead, she packs up her two teenagers (Juliette Angelo and Justin Prentice) and her feisty mama (Lily Tomlin) and moves from Nashville to Malibu and the beach house her ex used as his love nest, which also happens to be their last remaining asset. While Reba tries to revitalize her music career, her whole brood must adapt to the SoCal life.
The Oklahoma natives have appeared on TV together before: McEntire served as an adviser on Shelton’s team during the first season of the hit reality TV show “The Voice,” which will begin its fourth season March 25 on NBC. Also, McEntire and Shelton co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2011 and 2012; Luke Bryan will join Shelton as co-host of the 2013 ACM Awards in April.
