Reba McEntire and her boyfriend Rex Linn are mourning the loss of their seven-year-old French Bulldog, Riddler.

The three-time GRAMMY Award winner took to social media on Friday (Nov. 18) to share the sad news with fans.

“If we’re really lucky, an Angel will place something in our laps that will affect us for a lifetime…and we got really lucky,” McEntire wrote. “This particular “Angel delivered” life companion, Riddler (aka Budders, Budski, Squareheaded Bastard), said goodbye to us at 11:20 AM PT on Wednesday.”

McEntire went on to explain that her and Linn’s beloved pup was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma and survived less than three weeks with the illness before he succumbed to the disease.

“Only seven years old, lymphoma took his life less than three weeks after diagnosis,” McEntire explained. “He was a GRAND CHAMPION in the Show Ring, but a grander one in life. He impacted everyone that came across his path. He was a good man to ride the river with, the Best.”

McEntire and Linn recently attended the 56th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, November 9, where the pair presented and McEntire performed

Ahead of the coveted awards show, the beloved couple walked hand-in-hand at the CMA Awards red carpet. McEntire donned an elegant velvet blue gown and glittery heels, while Linn opted for a more traditional look in a black suit and black shirt.

Reba’s latest tour kicked off on October 13 in Lafayette, Louisiana at the Cajundome and features support from Terri Clark and virtual collaborations with Brooks & Dunn and Vince Gill. The Oklahoma native’s show boasts impressive production, with costume changes, pyrotechnics, and more.

Reba will also return to the road in 2023 for an extension of Reba: Live In Concert. Kicking off on March 9, the next trek will conclude with the “Fancy” singer’s first-ever headlining performance at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City.

“I am very grateful we’re continuing this tour on into 2023,” Reba said. “I’ve had so much fun being back out on the road and doing what I love to do most, entertaining people. And now getting to headline places like Madison Square Garden and bring my buddies Terri Clark and The Isaacs with me? Well, that’s just the extra icing on an already triple-layered, stuffed and filled, iced and frosted cake!”

In addition to touring, fans can catch Reba starring on Big Sky alongside her boyfriend, Rex Linn. The ABC drama airs Wednesday nights at 10pm ET.

In 2023, Reba will star in The Hammer on Lifetime. The much-anticipated film was inspired by the life of traveling circuit judge, Kim Wanker.

According to a press release from the network, McEntire will play the role of Kim Wheeler, who is described as “outspoken, firecracker lawyer” who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada. As one of the few traveling judges left in America, Wheeler finds herself covering a new circuit after the reigning judge passes away under what is described as “suspicious circumstances.”

Additionally, McEntire recently released a holiday project, dubbed Reba: The Ultimate Christmas Collection, which features hits from her previous Christmas project, as well as “I Needed Christmas,” from Lifetime film, Reba McEntire’s Christmas In Tune.

“I’m excited to share this newly packaged collection of my all-time favorite Christmas songs,” McEntire shared. “It was so hard to narrow down to just twelve songs, but I hope my fans enjoy this journey through time!”

Reba McEntire’s next scheduled tour date will take place on Saturday, November 19 at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas, with special guest Terri Clark.

Some people might say building a friendship before dating is more beneficial to the success of a romance. For Reba McEntire’s relationship, that could very well ring true. The country music icon has been dating actor Rex Linn for over three years, and the pair are still inseparable!

But, long before revealing their boyfriend and girlfriend status, McEntire says she and Linn took things slow and bonded on an emotional level before becoming intimate with each other.

McEntire, who will be featured in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE, caught up with the publication to talk about her relationship with Linn. She told the outlet the two have known each other through various projects they worked on since the ‘90s. But they never took things to the next level until they truly understood each other’s personalities, quirks, and ticks, which – in turn – brought them closer together.

“I’d known Rex since ’91, when we worked on the movie The Gambler Returns with Kenny Rogers,” McEntire says. “Then, in January 2020, I saw him again when I shot an appearance on the TV show Young Sheldon, which he is on. He said, ‘Let’s have dinner when you get through.’ And I said, ‘OK!’ He made me laugh my butt off on our first date, which we didn’t even know was a date.”

Even though McEntire, 67, and Linn, 65, had a chance to spend time with each other in person – and ultimately developed a spark during their reunion – the World Health Crisis of 2020 forced people everywhere – including McEntire and Linn – to keep a distance.

After having developed a strong connection, not only were the two unable to isolate themselves together, but they also weren’t in the same city. They spent the early part of 2020 living in separate states.

“He was in Los Angeles, and I was in Oklahoma because my Mama had just died,” the three-time Grammy winner shared, adding that the two needed to get creative with their meet-ups. “We didn’t get to see each other from March to June, but we’d talk over Zoom and FaceTime four to five times each day. We created a bond and an intimacy that was getting to know each other without being physical.”

McEntire now calls Linn “the love of my life.” But it took her a while to get there. For over two decades the legendary artist, who now goes by the name of “Tater Tot” – a nickname Linn gave to her – was married to her former long-time manager Narvel Blackstock. The two announced their split in the fall of 2015 and finalized their divorce later that year.

Since going through her divorce and seeing how other couples have communicated over the years, McEntire has learned a few things, including the importance of paying close attention to details.

“The little things mean so much to me,” she says. “It’s also important to be attentive and listen to your partner’s stories, even if you’ve heard them 100 times. I’ll watch couples who have very successful marriages, and that woman will sit there and listen and smile at her husband’s stories, and I’m like, ‘How many times has she heard that?’ I learned a lot from that.”

McEntire and Linn’s relationship is so special it goes beyond reality. In fact, the real-life couple plays husband and wife on Big Sky, which airs on ABC.

“To play husband and wife, it’s natural for us,” McEntire, who also makes Linn coffee every morning, says. “Rex and I rehearse all the time to make sure that when we step on that set, we’re not wasting anybody’s time. We’re professionals. We have our stuff together, we show up on time, and we’re ready. We’re not holding up anybody because time is money on the TV set.”

Acting aside, McEntire is currently playing shows on the road as part of her Reba: Live in Concert tour, which launched on Oct. 13.

Love is going strong for Reba McEntire. The country music icon has been in a romantic relationship with actor Rex Linn since early 2020, and it seems the lovebirds are still head over heels for each other.

While appearing on Live With Kelly and Ryan, where she couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear, McEntire recounted how she and Linn began dating. She also revealed the couple had known each other since 1991 but didn’t begin seeing each other romantically until the stars aligned for them, bringing them together on the set of the popular sitcom Young Sheldon.

“Right before the pandemic, January of 2020, I had gone out to LA to shoot Young Sheldon,” McEntire recalled. “Well, a good friend of mine that I’d met in ‘91, on The Gambler movie with Kenny Rogers, Rex Linn, he was also doing Young Sheldon. So he texted me and said, ‘Hey. You’re coming out to LA. Let’s have dinner.’ I said, ‘Okay.’”

McEntire and Linn planned to get a meal at a place called Mistral, and the two of them were to be joined by other people, including her tour manager Marne J. McLyman, her Reba co-star, good friend Melissa Peterman, and the showrunner of Young Sheldon Steven Molaro. But, McEntire had other plans. It turns out she wanted to take advantage of one on one time with Linn. So she made a break for it when she arrived at Mistral.

“Marne drops me off. She stops at the valet. I hop out. I leave her, and I run in. I see Rex, and I hug him. I say, ‘Oh! It’s been so long since we’ve seen each other!” McEntire shared to which co-host Kelly Ripa inquired, “So you two had a moment together?”

“Mhmm, and I saddled up to him,” McEntire quipped, adding that the crew made their way from Mistral to a wine bar, where the two of them got to know each other even more. So much so that they learned each other’s quirks and favorite snacks.

“The lady [working] said, ‘I know you guys have already had dinner. But, we do have appetizers and that sort of thing. I said, ‘What do you have?’ She said, ‘Tater Tots.’”

McEntire went on to say that she raised her hand at the word “tater tot” to let the waiter know she wanted to order them, and she ended up getting more than just the food. She received a nickname too.

“I love tater tots, and that’s my nickname, tater tot,” McEntire revealed. “Rex gave it to me that night. We’re the tots, sugar, and tater.”

McEntire later learned her boyfriend is a “foodie” too, telling Ripa and Ryan Seacrest Linn loves ice cream, steaks, beef from South Texas, lobster, pie, and more.

And since earning her nickname, McEntire and Linn’s relationship has continued to blossom.

“We had a tour and then we went into vacation mode, going to Montana and Wyoming. Then we went up to Vancouver and shot a movie for Lifetime. Then we went right into Albuquerque, New Mexico to film Big Sky,” McEntire gushed, using the words “we” to let viewers know Linn was in tow for those moments.

Both McEntire and Linn also star together in the upcoming Lifetime film, The Hammer and Big Sky.

And, McEntire has been keeping busy. Along with releasing an upcoming Christmas album titled, Reba: The Ultimate Christmas Collection, the award-winning artist will soon launch the fall leg of her Reba: Live in Concert Tour. The trek, which features support from Terri Clark, begins on Oct. 13 in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Reba McEntire said she and boyfriend Rex Linn are “having a blast” filming Big Sky together. The pair portray married couple Buck and Sunny Barnes who own a business called Sunny Day Excursions.

Speaking with Deadline back in August, McEntire shared more information about her and Linn’s latest venture, including their experience with filming the series.

“We’re having a blast,” McEntire told the outlet. “We’re still in the middle of shooting. We were on set last night [August 11] and there was a full moon. I think we broke around 12:54 a.m. Mountain time. “It was a long night but so beautiful. We are really loving it,” she said.

McEntire’s boyfriend, actor Rex Linn, expressed a similar sentiment.

“Wait until you see her in this!,” he gushed, explaining that McEntire plays a villain in the series.

The series, which is based on a book series by C.J. Box, “follows private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and her former partner, Undersheriff Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick), as they investigate local crimes, taking on drug syndicates, notorious kidnappers, crime dynasties and more along the way,” the outlet indicated. McEntire and Linn will appear in a season three episode where a trip led by McEntire’s character Sunny “goes awry,” also according to the outlet.

Ahead of the episode, McEntire and Linn posed for a promotional photo that was posted by the series’ official Facebook page. In the photo, Linn can be seen wearing a plaid shirt, jeans, a dark vest and a matching hat, while McEntire sports a denim shirt and dark jeans.

McEntire and Linn also appear in a new trailer for the series, which features Patsy Cline’s voice, singing “Happy Trails.”

Big Sky is not the first time McEntire and Linn have teamed up on an acting project. The pair co-starred in a new Lifetime movie called The Hammer, which is slated for release in 2023. McEntire plays the role of “outspoken firecracker lawyer” Kim Wheeler who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada. Meanwhile, Linn portrays Bart Crawford, “a mysterious cowboy with unknown motives.”

Besides working alongside Linn on Big Sky and The Hammer, McEntire shared that she’d love to have Linn appear on a reboot of her popular show, Reba.

Reba McEntire and her boyfriend Rex Linn will soon take their relationship to the small screen on the upcoming season of ABC’s Big Sky: Deadly Trails.

The real-life couple will portray a husband and wife on the show, according to Deadline. Linn will act as Buck Barnes, the husband of McEntire’s character Sunny Barnes.

“We’re having a blast,” McEntire, 67, told Deadline. “We’re still in the middle of shooting. We were on set last night [Aug. 11] and there was a full moon. I think we broke around 12:54 a.m. MT. It was a long night but so beautiful. We are really loving it.”

Linn, 65, couldn’t help but gush over McEntire’s performance on the popular ABC series.

“Wait until you see her in this,” he raved.

McEntire recently gave fans a first look at the new season of Big Sky as she voices the brand-new season 3 trailer.

“Welcome to Montana, a place where the horizon never ends, full of friendly folk, just trying to do right. But in the untamed wilderness, you never know what’s gonna be coming around the bend. One thing’s for certain, once you set foot in this place, you may never want to go home again. And you might not,” McEntire says.

The mystifying clip showcases scenes from the upcoming season, which has been dubbed “Deadly Trails.”

“You never know what’s coming around the bend. A new mystery begins in the season premiere of #BigSky: Deadly Trails, September 21 on ABC,” the country music icon captioned the clip.

McEntire and Linn will also appear together in the upcoming Lifetime film, The Hammer, which is set for release next year.

The Hammer will feature McEntire, her good friend and former Reba co-star, Melissa Peterman, and her longtime boyfriend, Rex Linn.

The upcoming movie was inspired by the life of traveling circuit judge, Kim Wanker.

According to a press release from the network, McEntire will play the role of Kim Wheeler, who is described as “outspoken, firecracker lawyer” who is appointed Judge of the 5th District of Nevada. As one of the few traveling judges left in America, Wheeler finds herself covering a new circuit after the reigning judge passes away under what is described as “suspicious circumstances.”

The plot description goes on to read: “With gavel in hand, she lays down the law with a no-nonsense brand of justice, that quickly earns her the nickname ‘The Hammer.’ As the investigation of the former judge’s death heats up, Kim’s sister Kris (Peterman), who runs the local brothel, suddenly becomes the prime suspect, and Kim must work even harder to make certain the appropriate justice is served.”

Linn is set to play Bart Crawford, “a mysterious cowboy with unknown motives.”

Reba McEntire revealed if she and boyfriend Rex Linn will ever get married in an interview with Extra. McEntire spoke with Extra while promoting her Revived Remixed Revisited box-set back in 2021.

McEntire discussed her relationship with Linn after mentioning that her song, “I’m A Survivor,” which was included in the box-set, had trended on TikTok. McEntire used the song in a video where she could be seen feeding her and Linn’s two donkeys, telling the program’s Alecia Davis the video was Linn’s idea.

“Rex Linn my boyfriend… He directed and did the camera work on my part with our two donkeys,” McEntire said of the video. “I think Rex was really promoting their career more than mine,” she joked.

In sharing more about her relationship with Linn, McEntire told Davis the pair’s nicknames for each other.

“I’m Tater Tot, he’s Sugar Tot — we’re the Tots,” she said before labeling Linn as a “great storyteller, total gentleman, and hysterical.”

“He loves to work, I love to work… We were both wannabe cowboys, cowgirls and then got into the entertainment business. We have a lot of similar loves and passions… We just get along so well and I’m just very grateful,” McEntire added when asked what made her and Linn so well-suited for each other.

The singer also answered one very important question: whether or not she and Linn will ever get married.

“We’ve talked about [marriage] and giggled about it. We thought, ‘Man if we ever had a ceremony, we would have to have a 2 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 6 o’clock and at 8 o’clock ‘cause we have so many friends, acquaintances, and family,” she explained.

Prior to dating Linn, McEntire was married to Narvel Blackstock for 26 years, divorcing him in 2015. Before Blackstock, McEntire was married to Charlie Battles for 11 years, ending things with him in 1987.

Linn has made appearances in a couple of McEntire’s TikTok videos, including one where the pair duels for their French Bulldog, Riddler’s love with a twist on McEntire’s hit song, “Does He Love You.”
