She’s back! Reba McEntire will host the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

News of Reba’s return broke during the 2019 GRAMMY Awards, Feb. 10, when a commercial for the ACMs aired during the live broadcast.

“I’m on my way to Vegas to host the Academy of Country Music Awards,” said the famous redhead as she walked down an abandoned desert highway. As the camera panned out, the “Fancy” singer was seen strolling on a moving sidewalk. “You didn’t really think I was walking, did ya?” she asked.
