* TruckDriversGearChange: "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" pulls off a rather unusual one, going from C [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorian_mode Dorian]] on the verses to G major on the chorus. The second verse also contains a single line ("Well the Georgia patrol was makin' their rounds…") that goes up to G before returning.
* VocalEvolution: One of her trademarks was her {{Melismatic|Vocals}}, vowel-bending, theatrical singing voice. Over time, she's ditched most of the theatrics and now sings in a more straightforward voice (partially because her older style was giving her vocal polyps).

Reba has also dabbled in acting a few times, including a six-season run in the SitCom ''Series/{{Reba}}'' and the role of Annie Oakley in the 2001 musical ''Annie Get Your Gun''. She also played Heather Gummer, Burt's wife in the first ''Film/{{Tremors}}''. Come 2012, she's starring in ''another'' sitcom, ''Series/MalibuCountry'', with nearly the same premise as her first sitcom.

** "Fancy," in the music video. While Bobbie Gentry's Fancy was an 18-year-old lady sent by her dying mother to a dance where she uses her sexual prowess and the connections she makes to build a better life for herself, thus saving her from the vicious cycle, Reba's "Fancy Rae Baker" is, in the video, sent off by her dying mother to become a songstress and actress and to use her talents to gain a better life for herself.

* CoveredUp: Reba's version of "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" is pretty much the only one that gets played and is well known for most casual listeners; it was originally a number on hit in 1973 for Vicki Lewis.
