It isn’t every day that Reba McEntire and Luke Bryan get together with Reba’s estranged husband and manager, Narvel Blackstock, and have champagne over a very long lunch.
Last Wednesday, Reba McEntire, Narvel Blackstock, and Luke Bryan were spotted together at Del Frisco’s Grille in New York City. McEntire had lunch with her friends just a few hours before she went on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote her new single, according to People.
McEntire, Bryan, and Blackstock lunched for two hours on cheesesteak eggrolls, ahi tuna tacos, and oven-baked flatbreads. Sipping on champagne, a bottle of Veuve, the party seemed like it was a mix of business and pleasure, according to one source.
“It seemed as if it was business mixed with pleasure. They celebrated with a bottle of Veuve. They both were incredibly courteous and wonderful to the entire staff.”
Reba and Luke have been promoting their music while in New York City, and they both visited Jimmy Fallon on his late show. Luke Bryan was on the show just days before Reba promoting his new album, Kill the Lights.
Fans are wondering why Reba McEntire had lunch with Luke Bryan and her estranged husband and manager. Could they possibly be working on a song together? Perhaps the country music superstar is giving Bryan some advice about his career? Maybe it was just a friendly lunch?
According to US 99.5, the trio could have talked about anything, including McEntire’s split from Blackstock. McEntire and Blackstock were married for 26 years. The two recently separated, and they publically announced their split on August 3. Reba McEntire’s first public appearance since the split announcement was on Fallon’s late show that night after the lunch with her estranged husband and Luke.
While on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Reba McEntire serenaded an audience member with Fallon. She got extremely up close and personal with the audience member while singing, which made for a hilarious skit.
The 60-year-old singer is working hard to promote her new album, Until They Don’t Love You. Perhaps Reba McEntire has something up her sleeve, which may include Luke Bryan, to help them both promote their new music.
