Reba McEntire cuddles up to boyfriend Rex Linn at the CMA Awards in couple's red carpet debut

REBA McEntire cuddled up to her boyfriend Rex Linn at the CMA Awards in their red carpet debut as a couple.

The couple had confirmed their relationship only a month ago.

The 65-year-old country singer and actress walked hand-in-hand with her new man, while making sure to socially distance from the photographers.

The Living and Learning podcast host rocked a stunning blue glittery long coat with black pants and boots, she accessorized her look with a plastic face shield due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Rex, 63, also wore a blue suit and black pants to match his new leading lady.

The two paraded together happily as they took their relationship to the red carpet.

Reba was getting ready to host and perform this year's CMA awards along with singer Darius Rucker.

Back in October, the country singer confirmed her new relationship during the latest episode of her podcast Living & Learning With Reba McEntire.

Reba told co-host Melissa Peterman: "Yeah, yeah, I am [dating].

"A very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn. And we’ve been talking during the pandemic."

The 65-year-old said: "We had dinner with Rex, was it in January?

"And then February on it was the Covid-19 pandemic and we were talking, texting, FaceTime. And that’s a really good way to get to know people.”

She continued: “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, me being an actress.”

The singer added of her new love: “And 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."

Back in January, the 63-year-old actor teased a potential relationship when he shared a snap of the pair cuddling close at dinner.

He captioned the shot: “Had a fantastic dinner with this Oklahoma girl. Tater Tots and Ketchup included.”

Reba was previously married to Narvel Blackstock from 1989-2015.

They share a son, Shelby Blackstock, while the singer also became the stepmother to Narvel’s kids Chassidy, Shawna and Brandon.

Brandon, 43, married Kelly Clarkson, 38, in 2013, while the talk show host filed for divorce in June.

The pair share two children: daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4.

Back in July, Kelly admitted her mental health had been up and down following her divorce.

The American Idol alum also revealed that she was suffering from "depression" during lockdown.

The mother-of-two shared: "I have suffered from depression and it’s one of those things where I don’t do well.

"And I’m an extrovert, so this not seeing humans and not interacting, I really feed off of people’s energy and I love the people that I’ve chosen to surround myself with in my life.

"So, yeah, I definitely missed even like my glam squad, you know?"
