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.”
