Reba McEntire husband

Charlie Battles (ex-husband)

Date of birth: March 9, 1945

Date of death: April 21, 2013

Reba’s gentle face and clear voice attracted lots of men, and some of them were quite influential. Nevertheless, she had never been looking for some profit in the relationships, and Reba was waiting for someone, who could charm her and steal her heart.

She met Charlie Battles in the middle 1970s. Probably, she couldn’t miss him – so strong and experienced. He was the local celebrity, rancher, and wrestling champion.

He grew up in Tulsa, OK in the family of Earl and Ocey Battles. His parents divorced when Charlie was still very little. The boy was brought up by a single mother and grandparents. In 1962 he was accepted to the army and there he got used to regular sports workouts. He continued training even after the service was over. He participated in many rodeo events and even became a champion in this so dangerous activity in 1968.

To the moment of his meeting Reba, he had already been divorced from his first wife and welcomed two sons with her.

Being a young inexperienced girl, Ms. McEntire fell in love with the brave rodeo champion. She eagerly agreed to become his wife and tried to be the best mother for his sons. They tried to build a happy friendly family, but something went wrong, so they divorced after 9 years of marriage. After that Reba left Oklahoma for Nashville to pursue her career as a country singer there.

In 1998 Charlie married his third wife Donna Granger, and she was his life partner till his death in 2013. Seven years before his death, Battles had a heart stroke, which ruined his health. For many years Charlie was disabled. His wife Donna and sons Lance and Coty cared about him.

Narvel Blackstock (ex-husband)

Charlie Battles


Date of birth: 1966

In the late 1980s, Reba made another attempt to become a happy wife. She tied a knot with her manager Narvel Blackstock, the former musician. To help his loved one with the career, Narvel founded the producing company “Starstruck Entertainment”. They both became the parents of a cute boy Shelby. Besides, Reba cared about Narvel’s kids from a previous marriage, daughters Chassidy, Shawna, and son Brandon (he was a husband of a popular singer Kelly Clarkson).

Reba and Narvel seemed a happy well-balanced couple to their fans. But in 2015 Reba announced through Facebook, that she split from her husband. Later they divorced officially, but Reba confessed, that their separation was not her idea.

Soon after their separation, Narvel started a new chapter in his life. He found the new love – a luxury home seller Laura Putty Stroud.

Reba is not a single woman, too. In 2020, she started dating a famous actor Rex Linn.

Reba McEntire kids

Shelby Steven McEntire Blackstock (son)

Shelby Steven McEntire Blackstock


Date of birth: February 23, 1990

Reba considers the children of her two ex-husbands from their previous marriages as her own. But the only blood-related kid she has is the son Shelby Blackstock.

Shelby is a celebrated car racer. He liked high-speed driving since his teens and dreamed to become a racer. To refine his skills, he entered Bob Bondurant race school. His career was started officially in 2010. That year he successfully participated in the Skip Barber competition. Since that year Shelby regularly takes part in various car racing championships and shows great results there.

Jacqueline was just 16 years old when she graduated from Limestone Gap School. Later she joined her peers at Southeastern Oklahoma State College.

After that Jacqueline Smith tied a knot with a handsome cowboy, named Clark. They welcomed four kids, and the major part of her life Mrs. McEntire shared her time between taking care of her children and many kids at school, where she was working as a teacher. In 1973 she retired and began to work at the rancher, assisting her famous husband.

She passed away peacefully in the tight circle of her children and grandchildren.

The younger sister of Reba McEntire, Susie launched her career as a musician by her sister’s side. She performed with Reba on the stage and went on tours with her. Besides, Susie contributed her vocals to Reba’s two albums, “Unlimited” and “Heart to Heart”.

In the early 1990s, Susie decided to perform solo. She chose quite a difficult genre – Christian music. In 1993 Susie released the debut set of songs “Real Love”, which contained several hit singles and occupied 39th place in Billboard chart, devoted to Christian albums.

By 2020, Susie McEntire has already released 11 studio albums.

In the early 2000s she was known as Susie Luchsinger. Her second name came from her husband Paul Luchsinger, with whom she divorced in 2008. The couple parented three children.

Nowadays Susie’s spouse is Mark Eaton, the public speaker


Reba Nell McEntire is a multi-talented personality. She can do it all – she sings, acts, and produces – and gets a string of awards for her incredible work. Reba is the happy holder of three Grammy Awards (in general she was nominated for this prestigious award 16 times) and a Golden Globe nominee. In the USA and all over the world Reba is known under the nickname “The Queen of Country Music”.

She was born in McAlester, Oklahoma, but she spent the major part of her childhood years in Kiowa, Oklahoma. She attended Kiowa High School. The girl’s mother was a big fan of country music, and she inspired her kids (Reba’s brother and sister) to form the amateur country band “Singing McEntire’s”. The family group reached a high level of popularity in their hometown. They released “The Ballad of John McEntire”, and about 1.000 copies of it were sold in Oklahoma.

Reba launched her career, performing at local rodeos and shows. Singing was her precious hobby at that time, but she couldn’t earn enough money for it. That’s why Ms. McEntire studied elementary education at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Later she worked as a primary school teacher.

Reba met her big break after she had caught the eye of Red Steagall, the famous musician, and poet. He noticed the girl when she was singing the National Anthem at the rodeo in Oklahoma City. With Steagall’s recommendation, she signed a deal with Mercury Records. That very year she released the debut self-titled album, which became a hit.

Nowadays, Reba is a busy singer, who has already released 33 studio albums, and 27 of them were ranked at least as gold. She gained some accolades as an actress, too, having starred in the sitcom “Reba” in 2001-2007.
