Country music icon Reba McEntire is doing quite well these days after her highly-publicized divorce from longtime husband and manager Narvel Blackstock. She told FOX411 Country she wouldn't have been able to get through the divorce without faith.
“Without [faith], I don't know what I would have done.” she told us. “I guess I would have been a puddle on the floor. You’ve got to have somebody to talk to. And God is my therapist and best friend. I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.”
The singer-actress said God is what gets her through every single day.
“My faith is the most important thing in my life. I don't know how I would get through the day or even a moment without a relationship with God. That is the first thing I do in the morning is thank Him for a good night sleep and I say good morning and I’m thrilled He is going to guide me through the day.”
Reba is getting ready to hit the stage again in December with Brooks and Dunn in Las Vegas. She revealed that being on stage provides an instant gratification.
“That instant response from an audience whether it is a yes or no you are getting it,” she said. “And hopefully it’s applause and they love whatever you are doing. But it’s live…it’s like live TV, if you mess up there [are] no retakes.”
McEntire has recently partnered with Cracker Barrel for her accessories line—Rockin’ R By Reba. It includes purses, hats, games, jewelry and more. The 61-year-old also has a Christmas acoustic album that will hit stands September 2nd at the Cracker Barrel.
“We are right here in the middle of the country. I grew up in Oklahoma and now I’m in Tennessee. I am very patriotic, I am very pro-USA and to be affiliated with Cracker Barrel, it exudes being an American.”
