Rejoice! The Blessed Mother Reba McEntire has found love again!

“Minutes and hours and years may go by
But my heart knows nothing of time
So don’t cry, just keep me right there
In your dreams
And hold on to these words of mine
Forever love.”

-Songbook of Reba, Chapter, “Forever Love,” Verse 3.

Have faith in this year of our Blessed Mother Reba McEntire, my friends! Our prayers and pleas have been answered. For once in 2020, we servants of Oklahoma’s Patron Saint and Queen of County (sorry Dolly) have something to rejoice over!


Country music legend Reba McEntire made a major announcement during a recent episode of her podcast, “Living & Learning with Reba McEntire.”

McEntire announced that she has been dating actor Rex Linn since at least early this year, according to the website Taste of Country. During the podcast, McEntire said the two had dinner in late January, “and then February and on. It was the COVID pandemic, and we were talking, texting, FaceTiming, and that’s a really good way to get to know people.”

In the Songbook of Reba, Chapter “I keep on Lovin’ You,” Verse 1-2, our Blessed Mother says,

“Love takes the patience of Job
That’s what my Mama always said
Faith is the belief in something more than what you know
That’s what the Good Book says”

Our Blessed Mother Reba knows that 2020 has been difficult for all of us. Collectively, Reba’s loyal followers rejoice in her joy and celebrate this union! Like a royal wedding at the end of a world war, may our Blessed Mother’s new relationship breathe a new life of hope and prosperity for the rest of 2020. But who is the man who has been graced with the love of Reba?

Although Taste of Country says the exact timeline of McEntire’s and Linn’s relationship is unclear, Linn posted a picture of the two during dinner in late January.

“Had a fantastic dinner with this Oklahoma girl. Tater tots and Ketchup included. @reba,” Linn posted on Instagram.

Linn, who grew up in Oklahoma City after his family moved to Texas when he was young, is a familiar face of television and the big screen. Some of his credits include “Rush Hour,” “CSI: Miami,” “Wyatt Earp,” “Better Caul Saul,” “Waco,” “Nashville,” and “Django Unchained.”

While we are happy to hear of this budding relationship, we Okies are also mindful and protective of the fragility our patron saint’s heart. Should Rex Linn blaspheme, betray, or disrespect our Blessed Mother by breaking her heart, may he remember that Oklahomans still haven’t let go of their Reba McEntire “Read My Mind” cassette tapes from 1994, so they for damn sure won’t let go of a grudge.

  1. Rex seems like a good guy. He basically plays the same character whatever he is in, but it’s been nice to see an actor play a “cowboy banker” in Better Call Saul that actually sounds authentic, and not like someone doing a really bad Yosemite Sam imitation.

    1. I’ve always felt that way about Reba’s too-forced over-done accent too. Nobody actually speaks that way.
      It’s horrible.

      1. You’re not from around here, are you?

  2. Also:
    “Linn, who grew up in Oklahoma City after his family moved to Texas when he was young, ”

    Can you clarify for us what this sentence actually means?

    1. I take it to mean they abandoned him, HOME ALONE fashion. Kinda forgot he wasn’t present in the new house down in Texas.

    2. His family abandoned him at an OKC fire station. He was raised by the adult Del Rancho kid.

    3. Rex grew up in Texass, then moved to OKC with his family.

      Casady prep school grad.

      Daddy is the late Jimmy Linn, who was a high-powered attorney.

      Rex has been in countless TV shows and Hollywood movies over the past several decades. Famous actor Mark Harmon, at one of his annual OKC Redhawk charity baseball games, was asked by a reporter if he knew the local boy. “In my line of work, it’s hard NOT to know Rex Linn”, Harmon replied.

  3. Who could stand that annoying voice day after day.

  4. That picture scared the s**t out of me.

    Because 2020 is the year that anything and everything horrible is likely to happen, I thought for a moment that our beloved Reba had found love with America’s odious weasel of a Postmaster General.

    Just a reminder: if you are voting by mail, do it way early! We can’t necessarily expect overnight delivery of our mail anymore. In Oklahoma, your county election board must RECEIVE your mail-in ballot on or before election day. If it arrives later, state law says that it can’t be counted.

  5. Don’t think Dolly will mind still being Queen of Country and letting Reba be Queen of County.

    1. TLO techies: Yet again my “thumbs up” registered and then disappeared. Came back in and it wasn’t there still. Sorta frustrating. Fixable?

      1. Mine too. It’s done that for weeks.

        1. Yeah, me too. I gave up.

    2. Well, then who’s gonna be Queef of the Count(r)y?

  6. Rex Linn? I thought it was Kiefer Sutherland without his toupee.

  7. Good score Rex!

  8. Rex is a Richie Rich from Honky Hall and Cassidy. His Daddy was lawyer Jimmy Linn who represented Imelda Marcos and David Bowie. Yup, they’re just down home country folks.

  9. Hot take- Pake McEntire is more talented than Chris Gaines.
