WATCH: Reba McEntire Is 1st Female Colonel Sanders

Country music star Reba McEntire is the first woman to portray Colonel Harland Sanders in a KFC commercial.

The 62-year-old Oklahoma native dons the familiar white suit (and facial hair) of KFC’s iconic founder for a campaign that will run through April.

In the first commercial for KFC’s new Smoky Mountain BBQ chicken, Col. Sanders performs inside a honky tonk bar as the real McEntire watches.

“Please ignore any likeness to famous country singers,” Col. Sanders sings. “I swear I’m not a famous woman!”

McEntire told The Associated Press that KFC has been a part of her life “forever.”

She is the latest celebrity to portray Col. Sanders, following the likes of Darrell Hammond, Rob Lowe, Bill Zane and Canada’s Norm MacDonald.
