KFC Made Reba McEntire Its First Female Colonel Sanders
KFC has had a lot of, um, interesting ideas over the years. There was the chicken sandwich that skipped the bread for two extra pieces of chicken.
Then there was the Memories Bucket (available only to Canadian fried chicken fans), which included an instant camera in its base so you could capture all the greasy memories. And let’s not forget the edible nail polish.
Now the OG chicken chain has had its greatest idea yet with its Colonel Sanders casting—Reba McEntire, country singer and star of one of the best shows ever named after a country star, will be the first woman (and first musician) to put on Sanders’s white suit for a new series of ads.
