Reba Breaks Breaks Her Silence After Divorce

Reba McEntire is breaking her silence since the sudden divorce from her longtime husband Narvel Blackstock. It turns out the country music industry wasn’t the only thing taken aback by the split, Reba was too.

The divorce was not my idea,” Reba tells CMT’s Cody Alan. “I didn’t want it in any shape, form or fashion. I just want everybody to be happy in their lives, because our lives are too short to be miserable. So, yeah, I just thought it was the best thing to take my marbles and go play somewhere else, is what Daddy used to always say.”

Reba’s faith in God is what got her through the tension and frustration.

I prayed every day to help me have the strength to move one foot in front of the other to continue on with what I’m supposed to be doing and why he put me on this Earth in the first place,” she says.

“You’ve got to have a great team of people around you that you love and they love you and I’m very blessed to have those people and I thank God for it all.”

“People always ask me, ‘What are you going to do next?’ Well, I dunno; God hasn’t told me yet,” McEntire said shortly after news of the separate broke. “God is my manager, my tour manager, my scheduler, everything, and He’ll come up with the greatest things.

“He’s the one who gave me Annie Get Your Gun and the Reba TV show and presents those things to me,” she continued. “And he always lets me have the choice of refusing and saying, ‘No, I don’t want to do that,’ but I know He’ll give it to someone else, so I always step up and say, ‘I’ll take it.’”
