Kix Brooks & Ronnie Dunn Say Reba’s Boyfriend Has “Passed the Test, He’s a Great Guy”

Kix Brooks & Ronnie Dunn Say Reba’s Boyfriend Has “Passed the Test, He’s a Great Guy”

Reba McEntire’s boyfriend, Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo, has the seal of approval from two of her longtime friends, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn.

Reba and Skeeter have been together for about 18 months, first making their relationship public at the 2018 Grammys. Since that time, Reba has filled her Instagram page with numerous pics of her beau, from red carpets and industry events to vacations in the U.S. and trips abroad.

In a sit-down interview on The Blair Garner Show, Kix and Ronnie told Blair that they are happy Reba has found a companion after her 26-year marriage to Narvel Blackstock ended in October 2015. Skeeter, a retired geologist and avid photographer, is a “good find.”

“Skeeter’s passed the test,” said Ronnie. “He’s down to earth, he’s an outdoors guy via West Texas and now lives in Jackson Hole, [Wyoming].”

“Skeeter’s the brother of one of my oldest friend’s wives,” added Kix. “My wife’s probably more responsible [for fixing them up] than I am. He’s a great guy. They’re having fun.”

“He’s dragging her out there, taking her beyond her comfort zone in some things—you see her all wrapped up in Jackson Hole in the Tetons chasing elk around. He’s a big photographer. Skeeter’s a good find.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
