Ronna Renee Reeves, 21 September 1958, Big Spring, Texas, USA. After starting singing and tap-dancing in local talent shows as a child prodigy, she fronted her own band at the age of 11. She went on to play Texas clubs and in the mid-70s, she was the opening act for George Strait and others, including Randy Travis. She joined Mercury Records in 1991 but her debut, Only The Heart, proved disappointing. In March 1992, her first country chart success, The More I Learn (The Less I Understand About Love), reached number 49. Two further chart entries that year and two in 1993 just reached the Top 75, What If Youre Wrong, a number 70, being the most successful. In 1993, after two more albums she left Mercury. Reeves then signed with the River North label and released After The Dance. The follow-up, Day 14, was produced by Peter Cetera and moved away from country towards pop and rock.
