Reba McEntire is nothing short of a country music legend. 

Throughout her career, the Grammy winner has been an inspiration for many in the industry. After she was discovered singing at the National Rodeo Finals in Oklahoma City in 1974, Reba kicked off a career full of chart-topping albums and record-breaking singles.

The "Does He Love You" singer even starred in her own successful television show called Reba, which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination. But wait, there's more!

She is also known for her incredible style in what has come to be known as truly all-American. And she plans on bringing her true country style to the stage when she hosts the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards this weekend.

"We're at seven [costume changes], and you never know," she teased in an interview with E! News' Carissa Culiner. "It could happen to go eight or nine."

With her new album Stronger Than The Truth coming out April 5th, the hostess is sure to wear looks just as iconic as her hits. 

"My favorite part about fashion is comfort. You gotta look good and I like the term tough sexy, but its gotta be comfortable," she explained to us. 

And while some occasions require a designer dress, sometimes it's a-okay to go a bit more casual. "If you're going to wear boots and jeans and a sexy top and like a jacket over it, I love that the best," Reba professed to us.
