Reba McEntire validated all her fans who claim the singer is ageless by sharing a throwing a throwback photo of herself with friends. She went all the way back to the 80s. 


On Thursday, Reba McEntire took to Instagram to grace fans with a dazzling photo taken straight out of the 1980s. Her inspiration? A guest appearance on CBS' "Young Sheldon." 

McEntire, 64, appeared on the comedy show as a woman named June in an episode titled "A Boyfriends Ex-Wife and a Good Luck Head Rub." The resulting post is found below.

Reba appears on "Young Sheldon"

In the episode, young Sheldon in college is forced to do a group project with reluctant fellow students. We've all been in similar positions when it comes to group work. 

McEntire's character June is the ex-wife to Meemaw's new boyfriend, Dale. On the show, she also gets a love interest in Wallace Shawn, who plays Dr. John Sturgis. 

The show, which is set in the 80s, prompted young McEntire to share a photo from her 80s days. In the picture, the "Fancy" singer stands with five other women.

Throwback to old "Galentine's Day"

All of them are wearing very dazzling outfits — except for McEntire, who's donned in a solid royal blue suit with shiny cowboy boots. It's hard to not catch what decade the picture is from. 

McEntire listed the names of her old friends in the caption. "...Debby Boone, Tammy Wynette, Donna Fargo, Sylvia, and Janie Fricke!" she wrote. The singer also hashtagged "Galentines Day." 

The new term was created recently for ladies who have decided to spend Valentine's Day with their girlfriends instead of their male partners or friends.

Reba's new album and tour

McEntire's flashback follows a nod she received for her latest album "Stronger Than The Truth," last month. It was nominated for Best Country Album at the Grammy Awards.


The "Does He Love You" singer has certainly not lost any of her God-given talents since the 80s. She still acts, produces, and delivers strong vocals for her loyal fans. 

Additionally, she's going on a national tour next month, which will run throughout the year until mid-December. Retirement is certainly not in sight for the country legend.


Fans point to Reba's ageless look

And rightly so. Fans are not only happy to hear McEntire's voice is still on point, but it's nice to see that the "Consider Me Gone" singer appears ageless, too. 

Last November, McEntire's admirers were especially in awe when she stepped out on stage for the Country Music Academy Awards and delivered a breathtaking performance. 

Fans went crazy on Twitter as they showered praise on her for both her looks and her top-tier execution — not to mention her three outfit changes, which were all as impressive as her timeless 80s look.
