Fans are getting a first look at the upcoming season of Big Sky, thanks to Reba McEntire. 

McEntire, who signed on to appear on Season 3 of the hit show as a series regular, voices the just-released trailer. 

“Welcome to Montana, a place where the horizon never ends, full of friendly folk, just trying to do right. But in the untamed wilderness, you never know what’s gonna be coming around the bend. One things for certain, once you set foot in this place, you may never want to go home again. And you might not,” McEntire says.
