McEntire was born in McAlester, Oklahoma, in 1955[8] but was raised on a ranch in Chockie, Oklahoma.[9][10] She was the third of four children born to Clark (1927–2014) and Jacqueline McEntire (1926–2020).[11] Her grandfather, John Wesley McEntire, was a world-champion steer roper in 1934, while her father held the same title three times (1957, 1958 and 1961).[12] Jacqueline McEntire had aspirations of becoming a country singer,[11] but instead became a public school teacher, librarian and secretary.[13] While her mother was tender and loving, her father had trouble showing affection. “When we were growing up I used to regret that Daddy never told us that he loved us,” she recalled in her autobiography.[14] The McEntire family owned a cattle ranch in Chockie. Each family member contributed to running the cattle operation. The McEntire children helped with ranch chores before and after school. This included castrating bulls and giving them worm medicine.

The McEntire siblings also developed an interest in singing, which was encouraged by their mother.
