Reba McEntire is no stranger in the country scene. She has become queen of her genre and will forever remain an icon in her industry.
But at this year’s ACM Awards, the legendary queen of country performed a powerful duet with a new artist by the name of Lauren Daigle. And now everyone is asking; ‘who is this young lady?’ She must be something special to the stage with America’s most beloved country singer.
The beautiful young artist is far from unknown in the Christian music industry. Lauren Daigle is one of the Christian music industry’s top singers– and God is using her mightily. Especially since sharing the stage with McEntire, Daigle has gained some serious recognition outside of her genre.
McEntire has sold over 85 million records worldwide and has recently made a gospel album, “Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope”. Daigle is accomplished herself since entering the scene in 2015. And now with McEntire taking her alongside her, she’ll be unstoppable.
Daigle tried to hit it big back in 2010 when she auditioned for American Idol, but didn’t make it through. She tried the next 2 years and still didn’t catch the big break she was looking for. She found her footing and her first album debuted in 2015, “How Can it Be”.
Singing a duet with McEntire was a dream come true for Daigle.
Lauren Daigle shared, “I grew up listening to country music with my dad on the way to school. It is such a full circle moment to now be singing ’Back to God’ with Reba on the ACM Awards! This opportunity offers a new platform to share hope and redemption, and I’m excited for us to collaborate in showing the world His unconditional love.”
Daigle is on the rise and has already made a new for herself. She has won New Artist of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year, Song of the Year, Artist of the Year and several more at the GMA Dove Awards. The rising star has been nominated for 2 Grammy’s and holds 3 K-Love Fan Awards.
McEntire loves Daigle and her heart for the Lord. The two released their duet online the same day as their ACM performance.
Reba McEntire explains, “I’m thrilled to have Lauren’s incredible voice add another layer to this song. It’s been really special to see how people are connecting to the message of ‘Back to God.'”

At only 25, Daigle is taking the world by storm. She is sharing her love for The Lord through her story of grace. Look out for this country-loving, God-fearing artist. She is definitely something special.
The world needs more people like Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle who aren’t afraid to stand strong in their faith.
“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” Romans 11:36
Thank you Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle for being faithful women of God in a society that makes that hard sometimes. Please share if their powerful stand for Jesus Christ encouraged your heart today!
