Kelly Clarkson Ex-Husband Brandon Blackstock Seen Branding Cattle, Living the Ranch Life Amid War Over Montana Property

Kelly may have lost a husband, but she gained a ranchhand as he continues to take care of the Montana ranch, which he was recently declared the owner of by a judge in the divorce case.

Blackstock, who is the stepson of country legend, Reba McEntire, has been handling daily operations at Vintage Valley Ranch, a property originally purchased as a family ranch.

Blackstock can be seen standing over a calf while pressing a scalding hot iron into it’s body for a unique brand. “Another year of branding in the books!” the ranch’s IG page posted.

Another pic showed him wearing the full cowboy getup with chaps and a sweet belt buckle, having a conversation with a pretty cowgirl.

As The Blast first reported, the divorce with Clarkson revealed Blackstock’s intention to leave his post as a music manager in Hollywood and commit full-time to being a rancher.

Holding true to his word, Blackstock has been living the cowboy life and was seen this week on social media operating heavy machinery during some daily work on the farm.
