“I ended up marrying her oldest son, and you got stuck with me more”
To which Reba quickly remarked,
Clarkson also couldn’t help but go on about her ex-stepmother. She said,
“Out of all the fun we’ve had, I always have my little moments with you because I know we’re friends and we’re family, but you’re always like that hero to me, especially musically. You’re just a beast, like a pioneer for women.”
“It’s insane. Not just musically, I think what’s amazing about your career is you’re a businesswoman, you’ve conquered Broadway, you’ve conquered TV, you’ve conquered movies, animated films. You’ve done everything you could possibly want to do!”
Kelly’s endearing admiration and respect for Reba!
It’s no secret as to how much close these two are with each other. Clarkson even paid a tribute to Reba with McEntire’s 1990 hit “Fancy” last year at the Kennedy Center ceremony where Reba was getting honored. She even gave a tearful and sincere speech dedicated to Reba prior to her performance.
Clarkson said as she tried and held her tears back,
“I’ve been a fan of Reba since I was a little girl. Her voice has always felt nostalgic for me. Even as an adult, there’s something about her tone and her storytelling that just feels like home,”
“Sometimes when we meet our heroes, it doesn’t always pan out how you hope. But meeting Reba — being friends with her, and eventually becoming family — has been one of the highlights of my life, truly,” Clarkson added. “So thank you so much for listening to me vent as an artist. Thank you so much for comforting me on the phone through my tears, like a friend. And thank you for being a really rad grandma for my kids.”
Regardless of Reba’s split with ex-husband Narvel Blackstock, Reba still manages to stay close with all of the Backstock family. And especially close with old friend Kelly Clarkson which is adorable.
