Reba McEntire Revives ‘Fancy’ for 2019 CMA Awards — Including a Red Dress!
Reba McEntire's revived her classic song "Fancy" for the 2019 CMA Awards, including another iconic throwback. The country icon brought the '90s country staple to the Bridgestone Arena stage on Wednesday night (Nov. 13).

As the song began to reach its conclusion, McEntire had another outfit change in store for the audience, revealing a bright red pantsuit that had the crowd roaring. Even Trisha Yearwood was bowing down to the country legend by the end of the performance!
McEntire's version of "Fancy," a Top 10 country hit, is a cover. "Ode to Billie Joe" singer Bobbie Gentry released the song in 1969, and it became a pop hit.
A six-time CMA Awards winner, McEntire has 50 CMA nominations to her name since the start of her career. Her turn as awards show host in 2019 is her fourth time in that role; previously, she hosted the show with Randy Travis in 1990, solo in '91 and with Vince Gill in '92.
