Reba and Rex began dating in early 2020. The country icon first revealed she was dating the CSI: Miami star during an episode of her Living & Learning with Reba McEntire podcast.

“I am [dating], a very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn and we’ve been talking during the pandemic,” McEntire shared.

“It’s good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what’s going on, discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor and me being an actress,” she went on to say. “He’s very into my music. I’m very into his career. It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart and is interested in me too.”
