Country legend Reba McEntire and her husband, Narvel Blackstock, are separating after 26 years of marriage. The singer, 60, and the manager and producer, 58, announced their split on Monday, Aug. 3, in a joint statement.
“Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other,” the statement from Big Machine Label Group read. “They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so. They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.”
According to the statement, the stars have already been separated for several months. No word if the couple had filed for divorce.
McEntire and Blackstock share one son, race car driver Shelby. Blackstock is also dad to three other kids from previous relationships, including Brandon Blackstock, who is married to Kelly Clarkson.
McEntire’s estranged husband runs the management company that reps Reba, along with other high-profile names in country, including Blake Shelton and Clarkson.
