Bring back the ‘90s, because Reba McEntire can still get “Fancy.”
The country music superstar, who hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night, took the stage during the show for a duet of “Does He Love You” with daughter-in-law Kelly Clarkson.
But the stunner came in McEntire’s subtle throwback: The 63-year-old rocked the same low-cut, sequined red dress that she wore during a performance of the same song with Linda Davis at the 1993 CMA Awards.
The dress had been housed in a display at the Country Music Hall of Fame until McEntire retrieved it.

“Sandi Spika made it in 1993,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I didn’t tell Sandi I was going to bring it back and wear it tonight. I saw her reaction, I saw her in the audience, she was crying.”
She also joked that she was “really pleased” that the gown still fit.
McEntire and Clarkson, who is married to McEntire’s former stepson, Brandon Blackstock, performed their duet as part of a flashback theme throughout the night that honored country music’s greatest history.
