KFC Names Reba McEntire the First Woman Colonel Sanders

For the first time, KFC has chosen a female celebrity to play founder Colonel Sanders.

Reba McEntire will play the founder of the fried chicken chain in commercials to launch its Smoky Mountain BBQ flavor.

The country singer wears a grey wig in a sequined white suit along with the classic Sanders mustache and glasses.

"Absolutely nothing's changed," she sings. "Oh, please ignore any likeness to famous country singers. I'm definitely not a woman. Oh wait there’s one thing that's new about me, it's my Smoky Mountain BBQ."

"Back to my chicken, smoky and crispy, tender and amazing too. I swear I'm not a famous woman."
