Reba McEntire Has a New Bestie: Shay Mooney’s Baby Boy
Who wouldn't want to hang out with Reba McEntire? Well, certainly not Dan + Shay scion Asher Mooney, son of Shay Mooney, who recently found himself enjoying not only the singer's company but apparently a spread of some really nice snacks as well.
McEntire posted a photo of her encounter with the toddler, who will turn 2 in January, noting, "Made a new friend today. Asher Mooney. We’re foodie pals!!!"
The two appear mesmerized by a plate of pastries, which Asher seems to be happily sharing (in his striped PJs) with the superstar.
McEntire hashtagged the post #CMACountryChristmas, which she will be hosting this year and where Asher's dad will also be performing along with musical partner Dan Smyers, so it's safe to guess the two new buddies met while the special was being taped.
Asher's dad noted the moment on his own social media, commenting, "Asher wandered into Reba’s dressing room today... lookin for food I’m sure. And this wonderful, kind, gracious, beautiful woman shared her biscuits and pumpkin rolls with him. He has no idea how cool this was. But he will one day."
McEntire will be joined at CMA Country Christmas 2018 by artists including Tony Bennett, Brett Eldredge, Amy Grant, Diana Krall, Dustin Lynch, Martina McBride, Old Dominion, Brad Paisley, Michael W. Smith, Lindsey Stirling, the Isaacs and Brett Young.
The show, which is in its ninth season, is relocating in 2018. It will be held at Belmont University’s Curb Event Center in Nashville Sept. 27, with an air date to be determined later. In previous years, the event was held at the Grand Ole Opry.
