Who Is Kelly Clarkson's Husband? Brandon Blackstock Has Strong Ties To Music, Too
From winning the first season of American Idol to becoming a huge musical sensation to sending body positive vibes out into the world, Kelly Clarkson has surely made a name for herself. But if you're a huge fan, like me, and want to learn all you can about her, it's time we talk about her love life. I'm sure if you have her music on a loop (including "Piece By Piece"), then you probably know that the 33-year-old singer is married to Brandon Blackstock. But, have you studied up on him, like I'm sure you have Clarkson? Just who is Kelly Clarkson's husband?
Like his wife, 39-year-old Blackstock also has quite the musical ties. He and Clarkson are both all about the music industry; no wonder they fell in love. On multiple occasions the "Because of You" singer has gushed about her man. In 2013, she told People about the first time she saw Blackstock at a rehearsal for the 2006 American Country Music Awards. "I've only had three other boyfriends that I dated, and not really seriously," she said. "This guy walks by, making everybody laugh. I said, 'I'm gonna end up with him. I know it.'" I guess it was love at first sight, because they ended up marrying in 2013 in an intimate ceremony.
Anyways, back to Blackstock. Here's what you need to know about him.
He's A Music Manager & Pilot
Like Clarkson, Blackstock knows a lot about the music business, especially since he is a music manager. When he isn't busy managing, he is also acting as a pilot. Per Entertainment Tonight, Clarkson shared a post on WhoSay in 2012 about his pilot skills in which she wrote, "I had a really bad day yesterday and my boyfriend is a pilot and flew in to surprise me and be with me because I was so sad. He wins Best Boyfriend Award ....hands down." While chatting with People in 2013, she even gave him this cute nickname: "Mr. Manly Hunter Pilot Guy."
His Dad Is Also In The Music Biz
Blackstock's dad is Narvel Blackstock, a music manager who has been in the business for years. As you can see above, his dad was known for managing and being married to Reba McEntire. The couple was married for 26 years before they split in 2015.
He's A Great Father
Before tying the knot with Clarkson, Blackstock had two kids in a previous marriage. He has a son, Seth, and a daughter, Savannah. After saying "I do" to Clarkson, they had a daughter, River, and are expecting another child together. Based on the photos above, it's clear that they both love their kids dearly. Seriously, they make the cutest family.
He's Head Over Heels For Kelly
I mean, just look at these photos. In this instance, these pictures are definitely worth a thousand words.
There you have it. Now you know all about Clarkson's husband. You're welcome.
