Reba McEntire first female Colonel Sanders for KFC

Country music superstar Reba McEntire is the latest celebrity and the first female to take on the role of Colonel Harland Sanders for KFC. “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.” Reba will appear as part of KFC’s ad campaign for its new Smoky Mountain BBQ fried chicken.
