Reba McEntire hasn't sung her swan song.

The country legend and actress, 56, shoots down internet reports that she passed away while filming in Europe.

"There is a rumor going around that I died after falling off a mountain in Austria yesterday while shooting a movie," the songstress Tweeted on Tuesday.

"While I would love to be shooting a movie in Austria, I definitely did not fall off a mountain! Nor am I dead! I am alive and kicking!!! … Have a great day."



The alleged tragedy, which began trending online, stemmed from a report on the Global Associated News web site, citing Austrian Police officials for making the announcement about McEntire's death.

"The actress fell more than 100 feet to her death in a remote area of the Hahnenkamm mountains while on-set during the filming of a movie," the site read.

But at the very bottom of the "entertainment website," a disclaimer reads in very tiny print: "THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE … based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction."
