The 60-year-old singer and her longtime manager, 59, have been working together for 35 years and tied the knot in 1989. In August, they revealed in a joint statement, "Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other."

The two also plan to continue their professional relationship.

"I look forward to what's next. People always ask me, 'What are you going to do next' Well, I dunno," Reba said in her first post-split interview this summer. "God hasn't told me yet. God is my manager, my tour manager, my scheduler, everything, and He'll come up with the greatest things."

Shortly after writing about her divorce, the Grammy winner told Facebook followers that she was listening to Dean Martin's Christmas music about "being lonely" and Frank Sinatra's cheerier holiday tunes.

OK Dean Martin sings Christmas songs about being lonely and then Frank Sinatra sings about let it snow! I wish they would get their stories straight! Are you happy or sad?

"For all of you that said sad, I am so sorry. This and Valentine's Day are the hardest," she continued. "Turn on your favorite songs that make you smile. Don't listen to the sad ones. They just hurt your heart."

Reba also reblogged a video that went viral earlier this year, where a 6-year-old tells her mom that she just wants her divorced parents to be friends. "This child speaks with so much wisdom," the singer-actress wrote.

You have to watch this. This child speaks with so much wisdom.
