Reba McEntire has some big shoes to fill on The Voice. She’s stepping up to fill the chair left vacant after longtime coach Blake Shelton leaves the show.
McEntire will join a panel of experienced coaches on Season 24. Niall Horan, Gwen Stefani, and John Legend are those coaches.

Both Legend and Stefani have won The Voice once. It’s yet to be determined if Horan will earn his own win, but there’s a chance he will. His contestant Gina Miles will compete in the Season 23 finale.

McEntire is hopeful she’ll score a win during her first season as a coach on The Voice. Although Season 24 hasn’t started yet, she’s already forming a plan to ensure she’ll emerge victorious.
“The country lane — I’m taking over for Blake so I’m gonna represent country music,” McEntire told PEOPLE. ” [He’s got] big boots. I don’t know what size those boots are, but they’re big, so I’m gonna really work hard to make him proud.”
McEntire has her eye on Shelton’s wife, Stefani, as the coach to beat in Season 24. Her plan is to bring the “razzle-dazzle” to stand out next to her on the show.
“I do understand that I need to go razzle-dazzle with Gwen being on there,” she said. “Gwen’s always got the nicest outfits, so I really need to step up my game on that.”

“…I’m sure that I’ll have lots of help, lots of advice, lots of people coming around saying, ‘You can do this. You can do that.’ And I’m not afraid at all. I think it’ll be a very fun adventure,” she said.
