Del Stanley "Pake" McEntire (born June 23, 1953)[1] is an American country music artist. He is elder brother to Reba McEntire and Susie Luchsinger.[1]

He was born in Chockie, Oklahoma, United States,[2] and signed to RCA Nashville in 1986, Pake made his debut on the national country music scene with the release of his first single, "Every Night",[2] which peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. It was followed by his biggest chart hit, "Savin' My Love for You" at No. 3.[1] "Bad Love" and "Heart vs. Heart", also from his first album, were both minor hits as well.[1]

McEntire's second album for RCA, titled My Whole World, was released in 1988.[1] It produced two more minor chart entries before he was dropped from RCA's roster.[1] Since then, he has issued three more albums on independent labels.
