If you had any doubts about Reba McEntire’s ability to take on the role of a small-town sheriff, this photo should convince you she’s up to the task.

The country superstar has begun filming her role for the pilot of a new ABC drama set in Kentucky. A photo of Reba on the set in her sheriff’s uniform has just surfaced, and we’ve got to say she looks amazing in the costume.

Reba wasn’t filming a scene when this photo was shot, so that’s why she’s all smiles. We anticipate Reba will be tackling some pretty heavy subject matter in this role, and that’s a big reason she took the part in the first place.

Reba recently told Rare Country, “It’s deep. It’s dark. And it’s going to be very interesting.”

We’ll have to wait until this fall to see Reba’s dramatic new role. She’ll be keeping things inspirational with her performance on the 52nd Annual ACM Awards Sunday, April 2 on CBS. Look for Reba to sing “Back to God” as a collaboration with Christian artist Lauren Daigle.
