How cool is this?
Two of country music’s hottest female stars, Kelly and Miranda, took the stage on Monday night, Dec. 15, to pay homage to a true legend: Reba!
Reba was honored during the show with the first-ever “Nash Icon” award.
During the third and final song of the medley, Reba stood up and joined Kelly and Miranda on her hit song, “Fancy.” So fun!
After the performance, Reba dedicated her award to her fans, and wished that Miranda, Kelly, and all of the other female country artists in the audience were fortunate enough to have the same life and career she had. So sweet!
Reba & Kelly’s Close Family Ties
While it was exciting to see Kelly and Miranda team up for such a wonderful performance, it was touching to see Kelly honor her mother-in-law, Reba. Especially just a couple of months after welcoming Reba’s granddaughter, River Rose!
For those of you who didn’t know, Kelly is married to Reba’s son, Brandon Blackstock, who she met after forming a close bond with Reba
Kelly and Reba met after Kelly hired Reba’s husband, Narvel Blackstock, as her manager in 2007. The pair later teamed up for a duet and a handful of performances, which led to her romantic relationship with Brandon in February 2012.
Kelly and Reba are definitely living a country music fairytale!
