It looks like Reba McEntire is a fan of Ted Lasso

The country music icon took to Twitter early Monday morning (Sept. 20) to congratulate the comedy series on its four Emmys wins. 

“Congratulations to everyone on Team @TedLasso on your #Emmy wins,” she wrote. 

In true Reba form, she made a joke, referencing the fact that in the show, Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis), leaves tickets for Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) at will call under the names of famous country singers. 

Throughout the show, tickets were left under the pseudonyms Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Shania Twain. And, *spoiler alert* tickets were finally picked up by Kent when they were left under the alias Reba McEntire. 

“I tried to get in to the show, but someone forgot to leave my ticket at will call… #RoyKent,” she joked. 

Ted Lasso, which airs on Apple TV, won a total of four Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series – Jason Sudeikis, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series – Brett Goldstein, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series – Hannah Waddingham and Outstanding Comedy Series. 

Reba McEntire’s comedy, Reba, was previously nominated for two Emmys in 2005 and 2006, however, the beloved comedy series never took home a win. 

Although she has yet to win an Emmy, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Hollywood Bowl member has won 16 ACM Awards, 15 American Music Awards, 9 People’s Choice Awards, 6 CMA Awards, 3 GRAMMY® Awards, a GMA Dove Award and was a 2018 Kennedy Center Honors recipient, in addition to multiple philanthropic and leadership honors.
