The singles discography of American country music singer Reba McEntire comprises 93 singles.

After being discovered by country artist Red Steagall, McEntire signed a recording contract with Polygram/Mercury Records in 1976. In 1977, she released her debut, self-titled album, which yielded four singles that failed to become major hits on the country chart. It was her next album, released in 1979, titled Out of a Dream that produced her first Top 40 hits and her first major hit, a remake of Patsy Cline's "Sweet Dreams". Between 1980 and 1984, McEntire had a series of Top 10 and 20 country hits, including "(You Lift Me Up) To Heaven", "Today All Over Again", "Only You (And You Alone)", and her first number one country hit, "Can't Even Get the Blues". However, she was not pleased with the music she was recording under the label (country pop-styled ballads) and signed with MCA Records in 1984, where McEntire had more control over what she recorded and how she recorded it.

Under MCA, McEntire began to have her biggest success with the release of her 1984 album, My Kind of Country, which celebrated traditional country music. The album spawned two number one hits, "How Blue" and "Somebody Should Leave", setting the trend for a string of number one hits McEntire would have in the late 1980s and into the early 1990s, including songs like "Whoever's in New England", "Little Rock", "The Last One to Know", "One Promise Too Late", "Love Will Find Its Way to You", "Rumor Has It", and "For My Broken Heart". Her success in the late '80s helped revitalize traditional country music, and McEntire was considered one of the leaders in the traditional country sound of the late '80s and '90s, along with George Strait, Garth Brooks, Patty Loveless, and Randy Travis.

McEntire's success continued into the late 90s, especially after the release of 1996's What If It's You, which yielded her first number one single in almost two years and three additional major hits. After the release of 1999's So Good Together, McEntire branched out into acting and created her own television sitcom, Reba (2001–2007), and didn't record or tour for nearly three years. In 2004, she returned to music with her 24th studio album, Room to Breathe. The album produced her first number one hit since 1998 and three additional major hits between 2004 and 2005. In 2007, she released her 25th and final album for MCA, Reba: Duets, a collection of duets with other recording artists, including Kelly Clarkson, Kenny Chesney, and Justin Timberlake. In 2008, she signed with the Valory Music Group, which released her first single, "Strange", to radio in early April 2009.

In her thirty-five year career Reba McEntire has produced 25 number one singles, tying the record with Dolly Parton for the most number one singles by a female country artist. In addition, McEntire holds the record for the most Top 10 hits by a female country artist, surpassing Parton's record in 2009 with her 56th Top 10 hit, "Cowgirls Don't Cry", a duet with Brooks & Dunn.
