Reba is both the first music star and first woman to play the Colonel.“I grew up with Kentucky Fried Chicken. It’s part of my story, and I’m so excited to now be part of theirs,” Reba says. “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.”
The debut of Reba’s Colonel Sanders comes hot on the heels of the brand’s new Smoky Mountain BBQ friend chicken.The flavor option heads to KFC stores January 29.
So she's the first woman to be Colonel Sanders....unless you count Kesha's outfit at the Billboard Music Awards last year.
