To go along with her second sitcom, Oklahoma-born and bred singer actress Reba McEntire now has her second TV show theme song to her credit. In this video, flame-haired belter, who hails from Chockie, takes fans behind the scenes of her recording “Goodbye Looks Good on Me,” the theme for her new ABC series “Malibu Country.”
“Malibu Country” airs at 7:30 p.m. Friday on ABC. McEntire stars as Reba Gallagher, a once-promising country singer who put her career on hold to raise a family. When she discovers her husband, fellow musician Bobby (Jeffrey Nordling), 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.
