Reba McEntire will always be grateful for Kenny Rogers' help when she lost most of her band in a plane crash in 1991.
She says that taking part in his made-for-television movie seven months after the accident really helped her move forward. "Kenny saved my sanity in '91 when he asked me to come do The Gambler movie," she shared in a recent interview. "I was still in a state of disbelief and not knowing what I was gonna do moving forward after the plane crash. I miss him so much. He's such a special person and a big-hearted giver."
