Reba McEntire had known her husband-manager Narvel Blackstock for a while before she fell in love with him. The two met when he joined her band as a steel guitar player and later became her manager. They unexpectedly fell in love and were married in Lake Tahoe on June 3, 1989.
“When I fell in love with Narvel, it was like ‘ Wow! You’ve been here how many years? I’ve respected you all of these years, but wow?!’” Reba said. Reba and Narvel will celebrate their 22nd wedding anniversary this year. In a day when so many celebrity marriages end in divorce, Reba has said the secrets to her marriage are “respect, faith, love, trust and a whole lot of patience.”
You can catch Reba hosting the ACM Awards along with Blake Shelton on April 3 at 8/7CT on CBS.
