I watched Blake grow up in Ada. That kid would sing at everything. Never seen anyone but Reba work as hard to make it. If there was anything going on downtown in Ada, you could bet Blake would be there by the Thompson playing. Tall and skinny with a ton of talent.
Reba was born and raised not far from me. She too sang at every thing. Even when that girl was a child, she had the talent. It was funny running into her at the local Walmart in Atoka when she came to visit her family. No makeup, hair might even be in curlers but there she was with a basket full of food. She was so cool. Lots of freckels as well and a beautiful as a fresh picked rose.
