Inside Reba McEntire’s Friendship With George H.W. Bush

Reba McEntire has her son Shelby to thank for her relationship with Barbara and George H.W. Bush. She and the former first family met in 1990 when she performed in Washington, D.C, she recalled in 2011 on the “All the Best” podcast, hosted by the Bushes’ grandson, Sam LeBlond. McEntire and then-husband Narvel Blackstock were invited to meet the Bushes and they took Shelby with them, who was then six months old. “Narvel and I took Shelby in and Shelby got a hold of President Bush’s thumb. I said, ‘Oh, my gosh. Mister President, I am so sorry.’ He said, ‘Oh, don’t worry about it. I’m used to this. I’ve got tons of grandkids,'” she told LeBlond.

She said, ‘Hey, would you like to see where we live?'” she told LeBlond,
