…we were raised around cattle and horses,” she told Talk Shop Live. “He loves to team rope, I love to barrel race, and we both got into show business. So that was always our passion, to be in a Western. To get to be on one together would be a blast.”

Now, McEntire and Linn are starring in a movie together, though it’s not a Western.

On June 30, Deadline reported that McEntire is the star and executive producer of a new Lifetime movie called The Hammer. The movie is based on the life of traveling circuit judge Kim Wanker.

Deadline cites the film’s logline, which says:

…the film follows Kim Wheeler…an outspoken, firecracker lawyer who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada and is one of the few traveling judges left in America. After the reigning judge dies under suspicious circumstances, Kim finds herself covering a circuit that stretches between Las Vegas and Reno — a rugged, often desolate area where anything and everything can happen. With gavel in hand, she lays down the law with a no-nonsense brand of justice, that quickly earns her the nickname ‘The Hammer.‘”

Deadline explains that McEntire’s character “must work even harder to make certain the appropriate justice is served” when her sister is named a prime suspect. Her sister is being played by Melissa Peterman, McEntire’s real-life best friend and former Reba co-star.
