Reba McEntire Is the Newest KFC Colonel Sanders!

Move over Rob Lowe, George Hamilton and even Norm MacDonald … there’s a new Colonel in town.

Country legend Reba McEntire was just announced as the fast-food chicken chains newest ambassador.  The first female Colonel Sanders is hawking Smoky Mountain BBQ Chicken.

The TV spot features Colonel Reba singing in a rowdy honky tonk, where the “real” Reba is in the audience.  The lyrics to the song poke fun at the gender switch, singing “I’m Colonel Sanders, the same as always, absolutely nothing’s changed.”

Well done, KFC.
