“It was a really nice shotgun. It’s too nice to open,” he said. “I don’t know. I need a special day to open it up and take it out. It was a really nice gun.”

Reba McEntire, who hosted the Christmas show, said her busy schedule keeps her from spoiling her grandkids each year.

McEntire was married to Narvel Blackstock from 1989 to 2015. Through marriage, she became stepmother to his children, Brandon Blackstock, Shelby Blackstock, Chassidy Celeste Blackstock, and Shawna Rene Blackstock, who all have children of their own. Brandon Blackstock is famously married to singer Kelly Clarkson.

"I'm an invisible grandparent," McEntire told "Everybody is just going so fast. Chassidy and her family live in Houston. Kelly and Brandon, they're in LA half the time longer there than they are in Nashville. Shawna and her daughter, Chelsea, are out in Gallatin, (Tennessee), but I never see any of them."

“I’m not a spoiling grandma,” she said. “Nope. I probably would if I saw them more often, but since I’m not, no I don’t.”

That doesn’t keep the singer from getting her family gifts, however -- she shops online.

“I’m an internet girl,” she said. “So when I see something, I usually buy four, because I want one, and then I get somebody, you know, all my buddies or my nieces and nephews and kids and grandkids, I’ll find something for them, and I’ll buy it immediately.”
