On March 16, 1991a plan crash killed Reba McEntire’s band. Thankfully, Reba wasn't involved in the crash but many sources claim that she was killed in the crash too (that is not true because she is alive and well)

Yes I read about it and decided not to include it to the list as Reba survived. I might update the list in the future, sort it by date and give more information about the plane crashes...

Reba may have survived it but if I remember correctly, she was DEEPLY affected by the events for quite awhile.
