Reba McEntire has had an astoundingly successful career. Ever since the ’70s she’s been at the top of the country music game. She’s one of the best-selling artists of any genre. She’s acted too, most notably in Tremors and her own self-titled sitcom Reba. But the Queen of Country’s personal life hasn’t gone so well.
McEntire’s first marriage took place before she made it big. In 1976 she wed Charlie Battles, a successful steer-wrestler ten years her senior. The relationship began well, with the two owning a ranch in McEntire’s home state, Oklahoma. But once she started to make it big, their romance started to fade.
