Reba McEntire is coming to Lifetime in a new Christmas movie this holiday season, and she shared a first glimpse with her fans in a social media post.
The country superstar and actor took to Instagram on Friday (September 3) to share a new lifetime ad that first aired on Friday, announcing the network’s upcoming holiday movie series It’s a Wonderful Lifetime.
