[Video] Reba McEntire’s “special” reaction to watching Lady A Beautifully Covered 2 of Her Biggest Hits

Lady A Beautifully Covered 2 of Reba McEntire’s Biggest Hits — in Front of Her

McEntire looked as proud as ever from the crowd!

Reba McEntire has some wonderful country hits in her repertoire, and in 2018, another talented country band got together to honor her in the best way.

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

At a Kennedy Center Honors event tributing McEntire, Lady A performed two gorgeous songs by McEntire herself — while she sat in the audience. They chose to do renditions of “Is There Life Out There” and “The Greatest Man I Never Knew,” and both were flawless.

Before the band’s performances, Lady A vocalist Hillary Scott gave a heartwarming speech about how McEntire has influenced her career. When she began to sing “Is There Life Out There,” the raw emotion on McEntire’s face as she watched from the audience was moving.

And when Lady A switched things up to sing “The Greatest Man I Never Knew,” Charles Kelly and Scott crooned the introspective lyrics together with passion. See the gorgeous performance, below.

About “Is There Life Out There” by Reba McEntire

Released in 1991, “Is There Life Out There” reached the top spot on the American Country Singles Chart in 1992. The narrative lyrics tell the story of a woman who begins to question her decision of settling down at a young age. The accompanying music video was noted for being one of the first to have lines of dialogue to explain the message behind the song.

“Is There Life Out There” by Reba McEntire lyrics

She married when she was 20
She thought she was ready, now she’s not so sure
She thought she’d done some living


But now she’s just wonderin’ what she’s living for
Now she’s feeling that there’s something more

Is there life out there? So much she hasn’t done
Is there life beyond her family and her home?
She’s done what she should, should she do what she dares?


She doesn’t want to leave, she’s just wonderin’, is there life out there?

She’s always lived for tomorrow
She’s never learned how to live for today
Oh, she’s dyin’ to try something foolish
Do something crazy or just get away
Oh, something for herself for a change

Reba McEntire’s Cover of “So Far Away” by Carole King Is Deeply Moving

Is there life out there? So much she hasn’t done
Is there life beyond her family and her home?
She’s done what she should, should she do what she dares?
She doesn’t want to leave, she’s just wonderin’, is there life out there?

There’s a place in the sun that she’s never been
Where life is fair and time is a friend
Would she do it the same as she did back then?
Oh, she looks out her window, and she wonders again

Is there life out there? So much she hasn’t done
Is there life beyond her family and her home?
She’s done what she should, should she do what she dares?
She doesn’t want to leave, she’s just wonderin’, is there life out there?
Oh, is there life out there?

Is there life out there? So much she hasn’t done

Is there life beyond her family and her home?
She’s done what she should, should she do what she dares?
She doesn’t want to leave, she’s just wonderin’, is there life out there?

Oh, she doesn’t want to leave, she’s just wonderin’, is there life out there?

About “The Greatest Man I Never Knew” by Reba McEntire

The fourth single off Reba’s 17th album, For My Broken Heart, the touching song tells the story of someone wishing they were closer to a person who has passed away. It reached the Number 3 position on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks in 1992.

“The Greatest Man I Never Knew” by Reba McEntire lyrics

The greatest man I never knew
Lived just down the hall
And every day we said, “Hello”
But never touched at all
He was in his paper
I was in my room
How was I to know he thought I hung the moon?

The greatest man I never knew
Came home late every night
He never had too much to say
Too much was on his mind
I never really knew him
Oh, and now it seems so sad
Everything he gave to us, took all he had

Then the days turned into years
And the memories to black and white
He grew cold like an old winter wind
Blowing across my life

The greatest words I never heard
I guess I’ll never hear
The man I thought could never die
Has been dead almost a year

Oh, he was good at business
But there was business left to do
He never said he loved me
Guess he thought I knew
