Reba’s touching tribute couldn’t be more appropriate for her beloved father. He loved horses, cattle, rodeo, it was his way of life. As she shares the story of her childhood Reba chokes back the tears with heartfelt memories of growing up in Oklahoma. Her family often traveled as her father was a World Champion Steer Roper. As they would travel she would sing along with her mother and siblings. When she lost her father, she knew the perfect tribute would be in song and “Just Like Them Horses” couldn’t be more appropriate.
The video was shot where she grew up. Her mother also makes appearance in the video. Reba says her favorite line in the song is “Just like them horses, now it’s time to run.” She says it makes her think of her Daddy, he ran all the way to Heaven, just like the horses. What a touching and beautiful tribute to her father who she loves so much.
