Wonderwall spoke to Reba and Brooks & Dunn, the latter of which have reunited to team up with the flame-haired singer for a Las Vegas residency in 2015, about a variety of topics. They spoke about Taylor Swift, reuniting and more.
About T. Swizzle, Reba said, "I'm proud of her. I think she's a very smart, very intelligent young lady. I call her an 'old soul.' She has done so much, so young. For her to go to a pop career, I think it's the next best step, more power to her."
Reba also said that Swift is a good influence on young ladies, too, which she does.
About T. Swizzle, Kix Brooks stated, "I think she's always sort of had a pop career. She's never really done traditional country. She writes great songs. Heck, Johnny Cash was a pop star like Taylor was a pop star. It's called popularity and she's had huge popularity. The fact that she was under a genre umbrella called 'country music' had nothing to do with the music she was making."
As for why Brooks & Dunn opted to get back together and residency, Brooks said, "A number of reasons. Reba obviously brings a fun factor. It's not like Ronnie and I gotta chew on, 'OK, if we were gonna get back together, which we didn't have any plans of, what's gonna be new with Brooks & Dunn?' We're not getting any younger and in 20 years, we did more than we ever dreamed we would have. Reba is like our buddy and our friend. We both admire her music and her talent and we know from touring with her that it's going to be fun. We don't have to try and rig up a bunch of traveling trucks and buses and what buildings would we go to …"
