It was final October 28," she wrote, adding "Thanks for all of those sweet messages. Narvel and I are friends. We have always been."
McEntire later talked about Dean Martin's song about being lonely and wrote in the comment section, "For all of you that said sad, I am so sorry. This and Valentine's Day are the hardest. Turn on your favorite songs that make you smile. Don't listen to the sad ones. They just hurt your heart." She also posted a cute video of a 6-year-old girl who wanted peace after her divorced parents had an argument.
