Nearly a year after her divorce from former manager, Narvel Blackstock, Reba is opening up about all of the big changes in her life. One huge change was her split from longtime management and a move to managing herself. Now, the famous redhead admits that that decision, like her divorce, was not her choice. Ouch.
Reba tells The Contributor:
I was pretty much forced to do it. It wasn’t my choice to take over my career as manager. I didn’t see it coming, but you know, that’s life.”
The Queen of Country admits she’s learning as she goes:
I’m getting a business education…Looking back, I’m amazed at how much I didn’t know about how this business works, and I didn’t realize. And I always thought I was a pretty good business woman.”
And ever the eternal optimist, Reba shares her motto for getting through life:
I think the biggest thing is to be kind,” she tells The Contributor. “Be kind and smile. It goes a long way. No matter how bad a day you’ve had, somebody’s had one worse. You never know what it is, so when it happens, that’s when you give them the gentle word that they may need even more than you know. To me, that’s the best thing there is.”
