Reba McEntire, 68, divides opinion in fur coat and boot combo

During Sunday night’s Super Bowl at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, Reba McEntire delivered an unforgettable rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” leaving both the live audience and viewers at home with goosebumps. Chris Jones, the Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive lineman, was visibly moved, shedding tears during the emotional performance.

While McEntire’s performance garnered immense applause, she also made headlines for her outfit choice before the show, sparking divided opinions among viewers. Read on to discover the reactions and controversies surrounding her pre-show attire.

Known for its grandeur, singing the national anthem at the Super Bowl is an unparalleled stage, and following Chris Stapleton’s stellar rendition the previous year, expectations were exceptionally high for the legendary Oklahoma native.

Taste of Country reported that 2024 marked the fourth consecutive year the NFL enlisted a country singer to perform the national anthem.

A month before the Super Bowl, the 68-year-old country star shared intriguing details about her performance in an interview with CBS Mornings. McEntire mentioned that she accepted the invitation for a specific reason after her boyfriend, Rex Linn, a devoted football fan, enthusiastically supported the idea.

Before her Super Bowl appearance, McEntire took to Instagram, posting images of herself in an all-blue ensemble. Draped in a powder blue fur coat by Pinto Ranch, denim jeans from Dillard’s, and knee-high royal blue boots by Old Gringo Boots, she seamlessly blended her country music roots with contemporary fashion flair.

The reactions to McEntire’s post were mainly positive, with fans expressing adoration in the comments. Comments like “Hello Queen! We see you and we are here for it!!” and “Looking like royalty!” filled the section, with some even comparing her look to a “western mob wife.”

Rapper T-Pain also took notice, sharing the post on X (formerly Twitter) with the caption: “The whole club lookin at herrrrrrrrr [sic],” referencing his 2007 hit song ‘Low.’

However, not everyone was impressed, and some commented that the outfit was “not a good look.” McEntire, no stranger to discussing her fashion choices, has previously mentioned her fondness for Levi’s, emphasizing her ranch upbringing. In 2018, she revealed a preference for Justin Boots but occasionally dons heels, especially for awards ceremonies.
