As we continue to honor the Everly Brothers, in the wake of the passing of Phil Everly, we remember one of their classics that was a hit for Reba McEntire.

In 1989, Reba McEntire released a version of the Don and Phil Everly composition ‘Cathy’s Clown.’ The Everly Brothers originally released the song as their first single on their new record label Warner Brothers Records in 1960. The song spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Charts, but unlike their other hit singles, the song did not chart Country.

In 1989, Reba McEntire changed the arrangement of ‘Cathy’s Clown’ to deliver an updated ‘female’ version of the song on her album Sweet Sixteen. Moreover, the music video featured a Wild West theme with actor Bruce Boxleitner that helped create a buzz around the song. The tribute single would become Reba McEntire’s 14th Number One Song on the Billboard Country Charts.
