Watch Reba McEntire Play Colonel Sanders in New Kentucky Fried Chicken Ad

Reba McEntire is no chicken . . . she’s a colonel.

Reba is the latest celebrity to assume the identity of Colonel Harland Sanders in a KFC ad spot.

Over the last few years, a number of actors have donned the Colonel’s white suit and black sting bow tie for the gig, including Rob Lowe, George Hamilton, Ray Liotta, Rob Riggle, Billy Zane, Norm Macdonald, Jim Gaffigan and Darrell Hammond.

Reba is the first music star—and woman—to play Colonel Sanders.

“I grew up with Kentucky Fried Chicken. It’s part of my story, and I’m so excited to now be part of theirs,” said McEntire. “I’ve held a lot of roles in my life – sort of like the Colonel himself – but this is certainly the most unique one yet.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
