Reba Is Ready for Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert to Wed
Reba McEntire is hearing wedding bells. No, she's not planning a recommitment ceremony to husband Narvel Blackstock, but she is watching several of her 'adopted' children tie the knot. Reba recently attended the nuptials between JoAnna Garcia, who played the superstar's daughter Cheyenne on 'Reba,' to New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher.
"I loved that," Reba tells The Boot. "I had a wonderful time. It was down in Florida, I wish we could have spent three or four more days down there."
There's another wedding on the 'Turn on the Radio' singer's horizon as Blake Shelton, who is managed by Reba's stepson Brandon Blackstock, and Miranda Lambert are 'Makin' Plans.' "I'm excited," Reba says. "I really do have a maternal relationship with Blake, so I'm looking forward to it."
Reba's feelings for her fellow Okie were more than obvious at this year's CMA Awards as she was overcome by emotion when he was named Male Vocalist of the Year. "They are a company, but they're a family," Blake explained backstage at the CMA Awards. "When you're brought into that, they treat you like family. When Reba was standing there emotional and was crying, and Narvel was crying ... I've been with them for five years now, and it's been a battle [for us]. I mean, every day has been a grind and it's just not been easy. [It's] like when you've been pushing on a wall and pushing, and that moment when it finally hits the ground, that's kind of what it felt like [to win the CMA award]. It's awesome!"
While Reba shares the same relationship with each couple, she is prepared for the events to entirely dissimilar. "It's going to be totally different from JoAnna and Nick's wedding," Reba adds. "That was in Florida, this is going to be, I'm sure, in Texas. I don't know, though."
She's also ready for whatever Blake and Miranda come up with, venison-filled menu and all. "It's going to be a very different wedding but I'm looking forward to it," Reba assures. "Anything to do with Blake and Miranda is always a lot of fun."
Reba just wrapped up filming of a guest appearance on CMT's new sitcom 'Working Class,' starring another former 'Reba' castmate, Melissa Peterman. The series debuts January 28 at 8pm ET/PT.
