June would regularly have to steal Johnny’s drugs and flush them down the toilet and take him to rehab throughout the marriage, but still, they stayed together. Johnny was so heartbroken that he himself died four months later.
The two got married on a boat in Lake Tahoe in 1989, and Reba became the step-mother to Narvel’s three children who she became very close too.
Reba became pregnant with her first and only child with Narvel immediately after the honeymoon, giving birth to her son Shelby a short time after.
The husband and wife also team up to help support charitable causes, having taken supplies to Gulfport, MS following Hurricane Katrina, and donating over $375,000 to victims of the bombing of the USS Cole by Al-Qaeda.
Narvel met Reba while he was a steel guitar player for her, and continued the relationship when he became the manager of her band.
The two ended up falling in love, getting married in 1988.
