One of the longest marriages in Nashville has ended, as country music singer Reba McEntire and her husband Narvel Blackstock split.
Reba McEntire has split from her husband Narvel Blackstock after 26 years of marriage.
The 60-year-old singer and her 58-year-old spouse - who is also her manager - went their separate ways several months ago, but will continue to ''support each other'' and work together.
A statement from Narvel's company, Big Machine Label Group, read: ''Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other. They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so. They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.''
It is not known whether the couple have filed for divorce.
Reba and Narvel married in 1989 and have a 25-year-old son, Shelby, together.
The music executive also has three children from his marriage to Elisa Gayle Ritter, daughters, Shawna and Chassidey and son, Brandon - a talent scout - who is married to 'Stronger' singer Kelly Clarkson.
Reba - a Grammy award winner and multi-platinum artist - is the star of the popular television show 'Reba' and has appeared in 11 films.
Her latest album 'Love Somebody' debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart since its release in April, whilst Narvel's company represent Reba, his daughter-in-law Kelly and singer Blake Shelton.
