Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock
American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock both work in the music industry, but that’s only part of the reason why they ended up meeting. Blackstock isn’t a fellow singer, but an artists manager, like his father Narvel Blackstock. Back in 2006, Narvel was Kelly’s manager, and the two met coincidentally through this mutual connection. However, although Clarkson was immediately infatuated, Blackstock was married at the time.
It was only six years later, in 2012, when Clarkson was set to perform the national anthem in the Super Bowl. As luck would have it, the second performer of the big night was Blake Shelton, who was managed at the time by Brandon. Knowing that Brandon was in the crowd made this performance that much more nerve-wrecking for Clarkson, as she later confessed. By now, Brandon was divorced from his wife, and that’s when the two started their love story.
