Reba McEntire Remembers Band Members Who Died In Plane Crash 30 Years Ago

Reba McEntire paid tribute on social media to her band members who died in a plane crash 30 years ago.

While on tour for her 1990 album, seven members of the country superstar’s band and her tour manager were killed when their plane collided with a mountain near San Diego, California, on March 16, 1991. McEntire dedicated her sixteenth album, For My Broken Heart, to the deceased members of her road band.

On Tuesday, marking the 30th anniversary of the tragic incident, McEntire wrote on Instagram, “No matter how long ago a tragedy happened and no matter how much time goes by after losing people we love…the anniversaries of losing them still sting and memories come rushing in.”

“Praying for peace today along with all the families of Chris Austin, Kirk Cappello, Joey Cigainero, Paula Kaye Evans, Jim Hammon, Terry Jackson, Tony Saputo and Michael Thomas,” she added.

The 65-year-old singer, songwriter and actress shared black-and-white photos of her band’s tour manager Jim Hammon, keyboardist and bandleader Kirk Cappello, fellow keyboardist Joey Cigainero, drummer Tony Saputo, guitarists Michael Thomas and Chris Austin, bassist Terry Jackson and backup singer Paula Kaye Evans.
