Reba McEntire’s love life is looking up!
The singer revealed on her new Living and Learning with Reba McEntire podcast that she’s dating actor Rex Linn, best known for his role on CSI Miami.
“Yeah. Yeah, I am. A very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn,” she shared. “And we’ve been talking during the pandemic.”
She says she first had dinner with Rex back in January, but then the pandemic hit, which wound up not being a problem.
She notes, “we were talking, texting, FaceTime. And that’s a really good way to get to know people.” She adds that it’s great to have someone to chat with and tell stories to.
“He’s very into my music. I’m very into his career,” she says. “It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart, and is interested in me, too.”
The news of the couple comes just a day after Reba was announced as one of the hosts of the upcoming 54th annual CMA Awards. She'll serve as co-host alongside Darius Rucker, who will be hosting the show for the first time.
Reba served as a guest host at last year's CMA Awards and previously hosted for three years straight from 1990-1992.
The CMAs will air live on ABC on Wednesday, November 11 at 8PM ET.
