by Quentin Blount

If you had any questions as to whether Reba McEntire and Rex Linn were getting along, you should squash those right now. The happy couple is doing so good, in fact, that they are talking about marriage.

Now, don’t get your hopes up country music fans. Reba McEntire hasn’t announced any kind of official marriage plans just yet. With that said, however, it seems like she has been tossing the idea around with her boyfriend. And the two seem open to the idea. McEntire explained as much in a sit down with Extra’s Alecia Davis.

“We’ve talked about it and giggled about it,” McEntire said. “We thought if we ever did have a ceremony we’d have to have a 2 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and an 8 o’clock because we have so many acquaintances and family.”

McEntire and Linn first got together back at the start of 2020. But even in just the short amount of time that they have been together, the two have overcome quite a few obstacles. Not only did they both get through a tough sickness, just last month they were saved from a collapsing building. However, what may be making them closer than ever is the fact that they both understand each other’s jobs.

“He loves to work. I love to work,” she said. “We were both wannabe cowboy/cowgirls and then got into the entertainment business…we get along so well. I’m just very grateful.”

In addition to those things, McEntire noted that Linn also has some other great qualities.

“(He’s a) great storyteller, a total gentleman and he’s hysterical,” she added.
