Reba McEntire Celebrates 69th Birthday Alongside Supportive Partner Following Past Marital Challenges

Celebrating her 69th birthday, esteemed country singer Reba McEntire reflects on a remarkable career that has witnessed over 46 million records sold. Beyond her musical triumphs, the Grammy-winning artist has found enduring love beside a steadfast partner, navigating through the challenges of two turbulent marriages.

Born in 1955 in Chockie, Oklahoma, Reba McEntire hails from a family deeply rooted in the world of rodeo, with her father excelling as an Oklahoma steer roper. Growing up as the third of four children on a cattle ranch, McEntire developed a passion for the rodeo at a young age, aspiring to become a barrel racer.

During her time as a student at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in 1974, Reba McEntire received a remarkable opportunity. Asked to perform the national anthem at the National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City, her talent caught the attention of recording artist Red Steagall, who was present at the event. Impressed by her performance, Steagall played a pivotal role in securing McEntire a record deal with Polygram Mercury.

Renowned as an actress and producer alongside her musical prowess, Reba McEntire celebrated her 68th birthday on March 28, 2024. Throughout her illustrious career, McEntire has remained a fixture in the music industry. In 1982, her single “Can’t Even Get the Blues No More” soared to number one on the charts, swiftly followed by her Grammy Award win, solidifying her status as a music icon.

In addition to selling over 46 million records, embarking on numerous tours, and gracing both television and Broadway stages with her presence, Reba McEntire has established herself as a multifaceted talent. However, despite her thriving career, the music star has faced challenges in her personal life, particularly in her marriages, where success has been elusive.

Following her previous marriages, Reba McEntire has discovered love anew in the arms of actor Rex Linn. Their paths initially crossed in 1991 on the set of the movie “The Luck of the Draw,” where they both starred. Their connection resurfaced in January 2020 when McEntire encountered Linn again while filming a guest appearance on the TV series “Young Sheldon,” in which he was also involved.

During an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” the country star delved deeper into her affectionate relationship. When two fans virtually joined her and host Andy Cohen, they asked McEntire if she would consider marrying her Linn.

McEntire answered, “My Sugar Tot? That would be up to him. I’ve been married twice, he’s never been married, so if he wants to, that’s totally up to him.”

Digging deeper, Cohen probed McEntire about her thoughts upon discovering that Linn had never experienced marriage. Pausing briefly for reflection, the singer candidly confessed to feeling a bit puzzled initially. Nevertheless, she reassured Cohen that they had addressed the topic openly and had effectively resolved any uncertainties.

So, after two failed marriages, Reba McEntire and her boyfriend Linn, are inseparable. The singer advised people, “You gotta find somebody that makes you laugh… Most important thing and I found that. It’s priceless.” The lovebirds have fans on the edges of their seats, cheering for their love and hoping that they will get married.
