Blackstock grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. He comes from a musical family, with his father being the TV producer, former guitar player and music manager Narvel Blackstock, and his stepmother the legendary country singer Reba McEntire. His half-brother is the racing driver Shelby Blackstock.
Blackstock worked as the tour manager for the country band Rascal Flatts, and he is now the CEO of Starstruck Management Group, a company founded in 1988, today owned and operated by Blackstock’s father. It manages talent including singers, songwriters, producers and recording engineers. Some of the clients the company has managed are singers Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Sara Evans, Faith Hill, Hilary Duff, Jon Bon Jovi, among many others. The company has been quite successful and has provided Blackstock with considerable net worth.
Among his other clients, Blackstock has served as the manager of the singer, songwriter and TV personality Blake Shelton, and has worked as a TV movie manager for the movie “Blake Shelton Live: It’s All About Tonight”. In addition to managing music talent, Blackstock is also a pilot.
Brandon really came into the national spotlight when he became involved with the pop singer Kelly Clarkson, who rose to fame in 2002 after winning the first season of the TV show “American Idol”. She has since released several albums and sung numerous pop hits, and has won three Grammy Awards. Blackstock’s father has been Clarkson’s long-time manager. In addition to that, Clarkson and Blackstock’s stepmother McEntire duetted several times, and that is how the two met. Reportedly, they have known each other for years, having been introduced to each other while Blackstock worked with the Rascal Flatts but, as Clarkson has revealed to the media, Blackstock was married during that time, and she never viewed him in a romantic way. They were reintroduced by Blackstock’s father at the 2012 Super Bowl, where Clarkson performed the National Anthem. As Blackstock became single around this time, the two soon started dating, and in December the same year, the couple became engaged. Blackstock designed the engagement ring for his fiance, a canary yellow ring with diamonds studded all around it. They married in autumn the following year in a small, private ceremony at Blackberry Farms in Walland, Tennessee.
When it comes to his personal life, Blackstock was previously married to Melissa Ashworth with whom he has two children. After the couple had divorced in 2012, he married Clarkson in 2013. They have two children together and the family resides in Nashville.
