Who is Reba Mcentire Dating 2022? What the Future Will Bring?


It is easier for country artists to compose songs about love and heartbreak if they have personal experience from which to draw inspiration.

Reba McEntire, a country music superstar, has undoubtedly endured heartbreak. In 1976, she wed legendary steer-wrestling champion and rancher Charlie Battles.

They split up in 1987. Reba married her manager, Narvel Blackstock, in 1989. Together, they had a son, Shelby Steven McEntire Blackstock. In 2015, after 26 years of marriage, they divorced.

However, things appear to be looking up for Reba. Since January of 2020, she has dated actor Rex Linn. Recently, she discussed her new relationship on her podcast, Living & Learning.

What is His Name?

Rex Linn is an American film and television actor who is best known for playing Frank Tripp on the television series CSI: Miami. He is a country boy at heart, just like Reba.

Born in Spearman, Texas, he spent the majority of his youth in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. His education was at Oklahoma State University. He worked in investment banking and the oil industry while beginning his career as an aspiring actor.

Floyd Epps was his first major part in the film Night Game, which also starred Roy Scheider. After that, he relocated to Los Angeles to pursue more prominent acting roles.

Reba remarked on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, “We’ve stayed in touch over the years, and we both know the same people, so it was like two old friends having dinner in January.” Consequently, “we began texting and calling each other on the phone to get to know each other better during the quarantine.” After Reba’s mother passed away, the two became closer. They disclosed their relationship to the public via Instagram in October of 2020. Their mutual nicknames are “Tater Tot” and “Sugar Tot.”

Public Performances

In November of 2020, the pair made their first public appearance at the 54th Annual CMA Awards. In March of 2022, they also attended the Oscars together.

Recently, they appeared together at the Gateway Celebrity Fight Night, an event Reba hosted for cancer research. Reba shared this information on her Instagram account. The event raised $5 million; Reba’s velvet dress, which was form-fitting and sold for $120,000. It appears that Rex may be her good luck charm.

What the Future Will Bring

Reba told Extra that the couple had discussed marriage. “We’ve discussed and laughed about it. We thought, “Man, if we ever had a ceremony, we would need a 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, and 8:00 because we have so many friends, acquaintances, and relatives.” Time will tell whether the couple decides to be married. In any case, we are rooting for them.
