Madame Tussauds Nashville is set to feature a wax figure of Reba McEntire when it opens on April 14.
The country superstar met her likeness during an interview with The Insider in Las Vegas ahead of a March residency date at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
The figure, which will be featured in the finale of the attraction on a replica of the Grand Ole Opry stage, depicts Reba mid-performance. Her figure will be outfitted in a stage outfit Reba wore while singing her megahit—and signature encore— “Fancy.”
To ensure an exact likeness, Reba loaned her dress, shoes and jewelry to the costume department of Madame Tussauds.
Last fall, Madame Tussauds Nashville hosted a social contest where fans nominated the artists they would most like to see take the stage at the attraction. Reba was overwhelmingly named the winner of the contest.
“I tried to find differences between me and the figure and there weren’t any,” said McEntire. “I’m really blown away with how great it looks, it’s like looking in a mirror.”
Additional figures hitting the stage at Madame Tussauds Nashville include Beyoncé, Billie Holiday, Blake Shelton, Bob Dylan, Carrie Underwood, Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Kenny Rogers, Little Jimmy Dickens, Louis Armstrong, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Minnie Pearl, Rayna Jaymes & Deacon Claybourne, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and Taylor Swift.
More artists will be added to the bill within the coming weeks.
