Melissa Peterman joins Reba on Tour

Reba McEntire has brought her friend (and new label mate) Melissa Peterman out on her co-headlining arena tour with George Strait.

During Reba’s set, the two do a hilarious bit on stage, reminiscent Lucille Ball & Vivian Vance’s slapstick synergy as Lucy & Ethel in the classic ‘I Love Lucy’ series.

“Melissa is so much fun to be with on stage or TV,” says Reba, who was surprised during her bit with Melissa Saturday night in Tacoma, WA when Melissa led the arena in a rendition of “Happy Birthday”, commemorating the superstar’s birthday which was the following day, Sunday March 28th.

Here is the crowd in Tacoma singing “Happy Birthday” to Reba:
