A New Start
Back in 1980, Narvel was the steel guitar player in Reba’s band. Narvel became her manager in 1987, and their working relationship turned into friendship. Narvel helped Reba go through her divorce during that time. They became closer and the friendship turned into a romantic relationship. In 1989, the two shared their love promises in a private marriage ceremony on a boat, in Lake Tahoe.
With the marriage, Reba became the mother of Narvel’s three kids from his previous relationship. In 1990, Reba gave birth to their son Shelby, who became a race car driver. Reba and Narvel were very strong and successful over the years, building Reba’s career, and establishing Starstruck Entertainment.
Born And Raised In The Country
On March 28, 1955, a country diva was born in McAlester, Oklahoma: Reba Nell McEntire. She, her brother (Pake), and two sisters (Susie and Alice) were raised in a small community, enjoying the simple country life on her family’s ranch. They would tend to the cattle together, and do the cooking and cleaning as well.
She learned the importance of hard work and one’s involvement in the family unit. These values helped shaped her success, not only in her career, but also in her life as a whole. Reba has an excellent work ethic. No matter what she was going through, she did not let it affect her professionalism.
