Reba’s Aberdeen visit airs tonight on NBC

By NEMS Daily Journal

ABERDEEN – Rumors that Reba McEntire was in Aberdeen on Dec. 6 turned out to be true.
McEntire was in town to film a portion of her episode of NBC’s new show, “Who Do You Think You Are?”
“First she met with a librarian and a genealogist at the Evans Memorial Library to talk about her family history and to see if she could learn more, starting in Mississippi and moving further into the past,” show researcher Rebecca Waer said.
Based on discovering celebrities’ ancestors, McEntire’s show is set to air today at 7 p.m.
McEntire, whose show also took her overseas, sang a song at the library and filmed in front of Aberdeen Elementary School. She even ate lunch at Penny Lane’s downtown.
