Brandon Blackstock Education
As both of Brandon’s parents are very informative and well knowledgeable people, they always emphasized the importance of education in Brandon and his siblings’ lives. This helped create a very positive environment in the family, which helped every child look forward to going to schools later on.

After studying and establishing himself as a very wise student, Brandon eventually graduated from high school with very good scores. Unfortunately, any detail about Brandon continuing his further studies remain absent at the moment, and we do not know if he went to college at all or not.

When the couple first met, Brandon was married to another woman. Yes, that is right, Brandon was married earlier. Brandon and his wife also welcomed two children from their 11 years long marriage. Later, Brandon and his first wife Melissa Ashworth called it quits over their marriage and Kelly got all the green signals to go in. This is because Kelly always kept her distance from Brandon because he was married at that time.
Since his marriage ended, Brandon and Kelly started to bond on a different level. As Kelly once revealed, when things started to get interesting between her and Brandon, she said to herself how she thought both were getting married for sure.
As luck would have it, Brandon and Kelly did get married on October 20, 2013, in a private wedding ceremony. Brandon started to work as Kelly’s manager who established a great work and love life balance for the couple and also allowed them to remain close to each other at all times.

Blackstock most notably started in his father’s footsteps as a talent manager. While there lies no information regarding his higher educational degree, we also remain very suspicious towards when he started his career as well. Certainly, getting into the career as a talent manager took some time.
However, Brandon received all the help he ever required because his father, Narvel Blackstock is a very competent man who also happens to come from a managing background. Also, this is how Brandon met his wife, Kelly Clarkson. As we already mentioned, his father Narvel Blackstock introduced both of them, and things went off that way.
At the moment, Brandon serves as a manger to Kelly Clarkson as well as other famous entertainment personality. But out of all his clients, Kelly remains the most special one. During a concert, Brandon took himself to the stage and replaced Kelly’s guitarist. While performing, Kelly turned behind and saw Brandon playing the guitar.
This is how Brandon relishes the perks of a career as a manager for wife Kelly.
