Reba McEntire will make her Broadway debut beginning Jan. 26, when she takes over the lead role in Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun.

The 45-year-old redhead is taking over the role from Cheryl Ladd -- and Reba admits she's very excited.

"This is a wonderful musical," Reba said. "The songs, the story, absolutely beautiful. It touched my heart the first time I saw the musical, listened to the story of Annie Oakley and how she became a famous sharpshooter that everyone in the United States and Europe fell in love with.

"It's not going to be work," Reba joked, "but I'm not going to tell anybody that."
