Kelly Clarkson Gushes Over Reba McEntire’s New BF: ‘He’s a Great Human’

Kelly Clarkson is a fan of Reba McEntire’s new boyfriend!

Reba, who was previously married to Kelly’s father-in-law Narvel Blackstock, revealed last week that she has found love again. The country songstress has been dating retired oil geologist Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo for nearly two years.

“Extra” caught up with Kelly at the ACM Awards, where she walked the red carpet with her Season 15 “Voice” winner Chevel Shepherd. Clarkson gushed over Lasuzzo, calling him a “great human.”

She told us, “He’s cool, love him, our whole family does.” She added, “He’s a great human and just a solid dude.”

Kelly revealed she was enjoying a date night with her husband Brandon Blackstock, and that they had left their kids at home. “My babies are so great,” she said, but insisted, “No, this is Mommy and Daddy’s date night. Of course, I’m working on my date night, sure… It’s not work, I get to sing, it’s the best job ever.”

The 36-year-old is getting ready to hit the talk-show circuit to promote her new tour, saying, “I’m excited about it. Man, I never thought I would be, but I love talking, there’s music, all the things I love.”

She added with a smile, “Girl, I’m just trying to matter till I don’t.”
