Kelly Clarkson starts to mend things up by hiring a new manager. The singer who parted with long time manager last month has hired Reba McEntire's manager slash husband Narvel Blackstock to manage her music career.
The deal comes after Clarkson left ex-managing company The Firm for Starstruck, a company with Blackstock sitting as CEO. Trisha McClanahan, Starstruck VP of Marketing, will assist with Clarkson's day-to-day operations.
"Kelly is an incredible talent with an unlimited future," Blackstock said in a statement. "We are thrilled to be working with her."
Blackstock is the replacement of Jeff Kwatinetz who decided to cut the tie with Clarkson after a creative difference. Kwatinetz took it hard when Kelly decided to go darker in third album “My December”.
Clarkson assists McEntire on the country singer's new single "Because of You," which will appear on McEntire's next disc, arriving this fall.
