Reba McEntire's name may have appeared on a recently circulated flyer for a political fundraiser, but she says the invitation was released without her knowledge or consent, adding that she has no plans to attend.
The event in question is a barbecue fundraiser taking place in Montana this weekend. It will benefit Kristi Noem, the governor of South Dakota, who is a Republican. Red Steagall, who Reba has credited with helping her get her first contract with Mercury Records, is also billed as a guest at the event.
CBS News journalist Stephen Sanchez tweeted an image of the flyer on Thursday afternoon. By the next morning, Reba had responded to the rumors that she planned to attend the fundraiser, saying that the flyer was distributed "without my knowledge or permission."
