Reba McEntire is one of many country artists to express their gratitude on this Thanksgiving holiday. Despite the difficulty of 2020, she took the time via Twitter to remind her followers to count their blessings.

“Happy #Thanksgiving! I know this has been a hard year for so many of us, but I am taking time, as I do every day, to count my blessings – for my faith, my family, my friends and you. What are you thankful for today?”

After posing the question, many of her fans replied, agreeing with McEntire about feeling blessed.

Reba McEntire’s COVID-19 Scare

The queen of country music has quite a lot to be thankful for this year. Before hosting the 2020 CMAs with Darius Rucker, she underwent a COVID-19 test after thinking she might test positive for the deadly virus.

In a Tik Tok video, McEntire shared the uncomfortable experience with her fans. She captioned the video by saying, “Thanks to all the medical professionals working so hard right now! We had a great team who tested us multiple times for the #CMAawards #covidfree.”

Thankfully, McEntire’s test came back negative, and she was able to host the awards show with Rucker.

In addition to receiving a negative test and successfully hosting the 2020 CMAs, McEntire’s romantic life seems to be going well too. The “CSI: Miami” star Rex Linn attended the 54th annual CMA Awards with McEntire. The event was the first time the two made a public appearance.

Last month, McEntire let the secret out about her relationship with Linn. Despite the continuous quarantine experienced by many Americans, McEntire’s relationship seemed to flourish because of it. On her podcast, “Living & Learning With Reba McEntire,” her giddiness about Linn was evident.

Reba said: “It’s good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what’s going on. Discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor, me being an actress. And he’s very into my music. I’m very into his career. It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart, and is interested in me, too.”
