REBA has parted ways, professionally, with NARVEL BLACKSTOCK, her former husband and manager of nearly three decades. The two divorced last year, but at the time, it was reported the pair would continue the working relationship they began in 1988.
REBA will now direct her own career as President of REBA'S BUSINESS INC. (RBI), maintaining management offices at 40 Music Square West in NASHVILLE. The RBI team will consist of Assoc. Mgr./Tour Manager CAROLYN SNELL, Brand Mgr. LESLIE MATTHEWS, and Controller THERESA CONNELLY. Additionally, JUSTIN MCINTOSH will continue to serve as VP/Creative & Marketing for STARSTRUCK while adding duties with RBI.
BLACKSTOCK will continue to manage the careers of BLAKE SHELTON, KELLY CLARKSON, and CAROLINE KOLE as he leads STARSTRUCK ENTERTAINMENT. It is not known if REBA will retain any ownership in STARSTRUCK, which she founded with BLACKSTOCK, or its studios and writers group.
