We finally have a Reba spotting! She attended Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XX. I’ve added over 60 HQ from the event! Enjoy!
Country singer Keith Urban has compiled a star-studded line-up of famous friends, including Carrie Underwood and Reba Mcentire, for his upcoming Country Music Hall of Fame benefit.
The You’ll Think Of Me hitmaker and veteran musician Vince Gill are serving as co-musical directors for the fifth annual All 4 the Hall Benefit Concert, which takes place on 6 May (14) in America’s country music capital, Nashville, Tennessee.
Taking the Bridgestone Arena stage will be artists such as Brantley Gilbert, Deana Carter, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Ronnie Milsap.
Urban shares his excitement for the event in a statement, which reads: “I think this is going to be an extremely unique and revealing night for everyone. Not only are we going to see extraordinary ‘one of a kind’ performances, but we’re going to hear some stories that just may have us hearing these well known songs in a whole new way.”
Over the past four years, the concert has raised over $2 million (£1.2 million) for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s preservation efforts, exhibitions and educational programmes.

A pair of Fall-Line Motorsports drivers won the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge on Friday but didn’t get to celebrate in Victory Lane.
Ashley Freiberg and Shelby Blackstock originally finished second in the race, but the winners were excluded several hours after the race by a technical infraction.
Officials with the sanctioning body for the race, the International Motor Sports Association, did not release an explanation of the exclusion, which tossed out the finish by drivers Bill Auberlen and Paul Dalla Lana of Turner Motorsports.
Freiberg became the first woman to win an overall race in Continental Tire Challenge History, said officials with Daytona International Speedway. Her co-driver, Blackstock, is the son of country music legend Reba McEntire.
“It’s awesome,” said Blackstock in a news release. “I can’t describe the feeling – it’s everything I could ask for.
“I’m pretty speechless right now. I’m a little disappointed I didn’t get to celebrate on the podium, but I couldn’t be happier.”
Their victory resulted in a 1-2 sweep of the top spots for Fall-Line, as teammates John Edwards and 18-year-old Trent Hindman finished second.

A MUCH-NOTICED, much-parodied relationship between a star and a brand is ending as a campaign for Activia probiotic yogurt, scheduled to begin on Monday, replaces the actress Jamie Lee Curtis with three endorsers.
The new endorsers — Laila Ali, a retired boxer and a daughter of Muhammad Ali; the singer and actress Reba McEntire; and Dr. Travis Stork, a former “Bachelor” who is now a host of “The Doctors” — are also introducing a new theme for Activia advertising: “Activia tummies. Happy people,” along with a new tag line, “Feeling good starts from the inside.”
Other new elements include a Twitter feed; a hashtag, #happytummy; and a song that supplants the long-running “Ac-TIV-i-AHH” jingle. The campaign is being handled by several agencies, led by Y&R Spain for the creative duties. The budget for 2014 is estimated at $35 million.
Ms. Curtis began promoting Activia in 2008, two years after the brand was brought to the United States by Danone, the French food giant. Almost immediately, her campaign was generating japes and jests.
A crucial part of the next phase is to make Activia “relevant to a broader audience” of “everyday people,” Mr. Rothman said, including younger consumers and men. By contrast, Ms. Curtis, 55, has primarily “appealed to women 35 plus,” he added.
Ms. Ali is 36 and Mr. Stork, the brand’s first male star endorser, is 41. That Ms. McEntire is 58 may help signal to older women that Activia still wants their business. Also, Ms. McEntire, a country singer, is popular in the Southern states where Activia sells particularly well, Mr. Rothman said.
One new commercial begins with Ms. McEntire declaring, “I won’t settle for just anything when it comes to what I eat.” Ms. Ali also appears.
In a second spot, Ms. McEntire confides that “the secret to a great day” is “starting with a big smile,” concluding, “And when your tummy is smiling, you won’t miss a beat.” Ms. Ali and Mr. Stork join her in that spot.
“We looked for celebrities who could amplify” the concept of “how you feel when you feel good inside,” said Rudy Dunand, global account director for Activia at Y&R, part of the Young & Rubicam Group unit of WPP. “We think we have found three who could inspire people.”
(Different endorsers, or “Activiasts,” will be used outside the United States; Activia is sold in more than 70 countries.)
Saying “tummy” is a lighthearted way to “connect with real people” on the issue of digestive health, said Manu Diez, global creative director for Activia at Y&R Spain in Barcelona.
“We want to explain that feeling good always starts with the tummy,” he added. “If it’s not happy, you’re not happy.”
In addition to commercials and social media content, the campaign includes print, outdoor and digital ads; public relations; ads in stores; and content marketing, in the form of Ms. Ali’s promotion of Activia on “The Rachael Ray Show.”
