Reba McEntire began dating her boyfriend, actor Rex Linn, in 2020. The two of them actually met on the set of the movie The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw in 1991 and kept in touch over the years.
McEntire was married to her second husband, Narvel Blackstock, when she filmed The Gambler Returns. Their marriage ended in 2015. McEntire went on to date Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo from 2017-2019.
Linn and McEntire joined some friends for dinner in January 2020 after she flew out to California to film Young Sheldon. That’s when sparks flew.
“Had a fantastic dinner with this Oklahoma girl. Tater Tots and Ketchup included,” Linn captioned a photo from their outing.
But because of everything going on in the world at the time, McEntire and Linn’s relationship had to be long distance for several months. Once they finally got the chance to see each other in person again, they became inseparable.
McEntire brought Linn to the CMA Awards that year as her date.
