Susie McEntire will perform at Heritage Center’s ‘Sterling & Spurs’ gala

ENID, Okla. — Native Oklahoman Susie McEntire will be featured entertainer at Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center’s fifth annual gala, “Sterling & Spurs.”

The gala will be Sept. 5 at the Hiland Partners Ballroom.

“We are thrilled to have Susie McEntire as our special guest for the gala. She puts on a marvelous show of songs and inspirational life stories,” said Director Andi Holland. “It’s also really fun for Enid that both McEntire sisters will be coming to town this year.”

Susie McEntire-Eaton is another prodigy of the McEntire singing and rodeo family. Like her brother Pake and sister Reba, Susie began singing in the back seat of the family car as they drove from one rodeo arena to the next. After graduating from Oklahoma State University, Susie toured with Reba until she began her family.

Later, Susie began singing and recording Christian music. She was signed with a recording label and garnered numerous awards as her music climbed the charts. Today she performs at rodeos, fairs and numerous special events.

In addition to her singing career, Susie and her husband Mark Eaton launched the Eaton Leadership Foundation and are speakers for schools, seminars and retreats.  

The Heritage Center’s Cherokee Strip Days Gala is the museum’s major fundraising event of the year to support museum operations. McEntire has generously agreed to auction off a private concert at the event, and she and Mark will be the special dinner guests at the gala sponsor’s table.  

For information on the fifth annual Cherokee Strip Days Gala, tickets or event sponsorship, call Director Andi Holland at (580) 237-1907, extension 223.
