#RebaMcEntire becomes the 1st female ‘Colonel Sanders’ for #KFC! [vid]


There’s a NEW ‘chick’ in town and her name is Reba, ‘Colonel Sanders’ if your HUNGRY!  That’s right, pioneer country music legend and actress, Reba McEntire is the latest incarnation of the venerable KFC pitchman, Colonel Sanders.  Reba is the 1st FEMALE to don the white hat and beard for the companies’ latest set of adverts!


The company unveiled a commercial Thursday which poked fun at that fact, having McEntire sing lyrics asking the audience to ignore the Colonel’s resemblance to a famous country singer and stating that he is “definitely not a woman.”

The singer has been enlisted to promote KFC’s new Smoky Mountain BBQ fried chicken. Reba is in good company, she joins a pretty distinguished list of ‘Colonels’, including Rob Lowe, Norm MacDonald, Jim Gaffigan and George Hamilton.
“I grew up with Kentucky Fried Chicken. It’s part of my story, and I’m so excited to now be part of theirs,” McEntire said in a statement. “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.”
