OFFSTAGE: Reba Adopts a Holiday Family

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

All Reba really wants this year is for people to just give, give, give to a family who could use some random acts of kindness. That’s what she and her husband, Narvel Blackstock, do every holiday season. Instead of exchanging gifts within their own family, they adopt another family and give them a Christmas dinner, gifts and even decorations. When CMT Radio asked the country superstar what she wanted this Christmas this year, she said, “If anyone wants to give to a charity, pick out a family. Buy them a Christmas dinner. You can say, ‘It’s from our family and Reba.’ And that would be perfect. That would be the greatest Christmas present you could ever give me.” Christmas is now officially only 15 days away, so if you need gift ideas, this is worth considering.
