LANE, Oklahoma -

A pre-K class has caught the attention of a country Superstar along with nearly half a million people.  

The school in Lane, Oklahoma, decided to start a reading program. And to prove to her students people do care about small-town schools, Pre-K teacher Ms. Beckie Eason posted a plea to Facebook. Little did Ms. Eason know she was absolutely right.

Ms. Eason posted a photo of her pre-K students asking Blake Shelton to come read to the class. At the bottom of the sign it says “P.S. bring Reba.”

Well Reba paid attention and shared the post and now it has well over the qualifying amount. At last count, the photo has been shared over 461,000  times.

To compare the town of Lane has a population 414 according to the 20-10 Census. So to say the least, Ms. Eason is awestruck.

"It is so overwhelming we never even thought we'd get 1,000 shares we're just trying to promote reading and show the kids people do care about small towns and to have these shares and the fact I can share that with the kids, it's amazing," said Beckie Eason, Lane Pre-K Teacher.

Now no word yet on if Blake and Reba will come read to the class, but Ms. Eason said sharing the post is enough. She wants her kids to know success in reading means success in life.
