Country superstar Reba McEntire is addressing her political stance on social media, and she’s making it perfectly clear.
According to CBS News reporter Stephen Sanchez, a political flyer was sent out with the singer and actor listed as a special guest. The invitation was for a June 13 event to benefit North Dakota’s Republican governor Kristi Noem. This did not sit well with the country singer.

I had and have no plans to attend this event and had told the event organizers as such,” she began. “Throughout my career, I have stated that I do not get involved in politics and that remains true today,” she added.
