In 2015, country music superstar Reba McEntire had the shock of her life when her husband, Narvel Blackstock, filed for divorce after 26 years of marriage.
The couple's family members, including their daughter-in-law, Kelly Clarkson, tried to keep them together, but Narvel had already made up his mind.
About a year after the surprising announcement, Reba admitted that if it were up to her, she would still be married.
"The divorce was not my idea. I didn't want it in any shape, form or fashion," the singer/actress told CMT a few years ago. "So it was really hard to make the adjustment when someone's not happy. I just want everybody to be happy in their lives, because our lives are too short to be miserable."
However, despite the pain, the 62-year-old entertainer came to accept that this was all part of God's plan.
"I have a long list of so many questions for God. Why did this happen? And how did you allow this?" she revealed in an interview. "I can never forget some of what [Narvel] did. But going on with life is what's really important."
Reba's focus on faith inspired her next venture: Gospel music. She released her album "Sing it Now: Songs of Faith & Hope" in February 2017, and it earned her a Grammy nomination in the Best Roots Gospel Album category.
The country queen won the trophy at the 60th Grammy Awards ceremony, which took place on January 28, but there was something else about her that caught everyone's attention: she looked happier than ever beside her new boyfriend.
Nearly three years after getting her heart broken, Reba's moved on and she finally stepped out with him for the world to see.
