Why not McEntire for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 69-year-old singer, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes McEntire so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the singer have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Kiowa Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Kiowa (Reba McEntire's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the singer was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Reba McEntire Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 14 Apr 2024
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveReba”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 14 Apr 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Reba McEntire?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 14 Apr 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Reba McEntire?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2024 Person of the Year.
