Kentucky Fried Chicken recently announced that Country Music Superstar Reba McEntire is next up to play Colonel Sanders in the next ad campaign for the chicken giant. I knew this would be good, but after watching this new KFC commercial, it's better than I ever thought it could be.

In a new KFC commercial, Reba McEntire plays Colonel Sanders singing an ode to KFC's "Smoky Mountain BBQ''. She even makes a cameo as herself in the new commercial.

The new ads are set to start airing January 28th, but you can get a sneak peak of the awesomeness below.

Reba and KFC, thank you.
