Is Reba Mcentire song Fancy a true story?
How much is Bobbie Gentry worth?
She was 40 years old. Since that time, she has not recorded, performed or been interviewed. One 2016 news report stated that Gentry lives in a gated community near Memphis, Tennessee. According to another, Gentry lives in a gated community in Los Angeles.
In 1976, a feature film, Ode To Billy Joe [sic], based on the song, was released to modest success. Billy Joe and Bobbie Lee (the narrator) are both white and their relationship is never consummated, but Billy Joe jumps off the bridge after a drunken homosexual encounter.
Who sang Fancy originally?
It was released on Reba’s Rumor Has It album. Reba said it had always been one of her favorite songs, so when she got the chance to cover it, she jumped at it. Reba also played the part in the music video for the song. The story of “Fancy” isn’t a true story, but we wish they would turn it into a movie!
