The New KFC Colonel is Ground Breaking!

If you've noticed anything different about the new Colonel Sanders, maybe it's because, for the first time ever, the Colonel is a woman.  

Country star Reba McEntire is the latest celebrity to wear the iconic white suit, black string tie, glasses, white wig and, yes, goatee.     She's part of the campaign for the fast-food chain's new Smoky Mountain BBQ fried chicken.       Reba says "I've eaten KFC my whole life. It’s been a favorite. It’s American. It’s wholesome."    

Reba becomes the 11th person to play KFC's Col. Harland Sanders, joining the likes of Rob Lowe, George Hamilton Ray Liotta,  Billy Zane, Norm Macdonald  Jim Gaffigan and Darrell Hammond.
