Reba McEntire Comes Face to Face With Her Wax Figure [Watch]
Reba McEntire is the latest country artist to meet her wax figure replica. During a recent sound check in Las Vegas for her Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas residency, the singer offered her assistance when her likeness proved a little too stiff.
In the video above, the band members are in place at sound check as the curtain rises to show McEntire. Only, it isn't the real McEntire.
"Hold up, hold up. Reba, what's going on? You missed your cue," a man says as the real singer walks up the stage stairs.
Dressed in black boots and a navy, sequinned outfit, she approaches her wax twin. "It's a lot harder than it looks, huh?" she remarks.

Madame Tussauds caught the entire experience on video. The world-famous wax figure attraction is slated to open its newest location in Nashville on April 14.
“I tried to find differences between me and the figure and there weren’t any,” Reba McEntire says in a press release. “I’m really blown away with how great it looks, it’s like looking in a mirror.”
Last fall, Madame Tussauds Nashville hosted a social media contest where fans nominated the artists they would most like to see take the stage at the attraction. As it turns out, Reba was voted the winner. Her figure will be featured in the finale at Madame Tussauds Nashville, where she'll appear on a replica of the Grand Ole Opry stage. Reba will be shown dressed in a red gown that she often wears while singing her encore of "Fancy." In order to mirror the wax figure in her image, the singer loaned her dress, shoes and jewelry to the costume department of the museum, who sculpted her down to the minutest detail. Get an early glimpse of her wax figure in the video above.
