When Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock announced their separation last summer, the pair vowed to continue working together despite no longer being romantically involved. Despite those initial intentions, and considering some salacious rumors about Mr. Blackstock, Reba revealed that she is now her own manager.
According to MusicRow, Reba spilled the details during a young artist mentoring session at Nashville’s famous BlueBird Cafe. She announced that she’ll direct and manage her own career as the President of Reba’s Business Incorporated (RBI).
“I thought it was a good time now to break free from management,” Reba explained. “My team at Starstruck, which is now RBI, joined together and had a powwow at lunch [brainstorming] ideas…We all get along and love the business. We’re always trying to find out new ways to do things.”
Additionally, when the subject of last year’s infamous tomato-gate came up, McEntire responded in true Reba fashion, “Tomatoes are more nutritious than lettuce.”
And when it comes to managing her career, Reba needs no lettuce. Tomato power, indeed.
