Reba McEntire wore a red outfit in Las Vegas as she stepped out for the American Country Music Awards with her boyfriend Anthony Lasuzzo.
McEntire was all smiles on Sunday, April 7, as she stood next to new beau Anthony "Skeeter" Lasuzzo, who she's been dating for two years now.
The famous country singer wore a sleeveless burgundy fringe dress that showed off her figure. She paired it with black snakeskin boots which helped as she posed for the cameras.
The 64-year-old accessorized with several necklaces and two bracelets. She wore her red hair in her regular flared out style, framing a made up face. Later, McEntire wore a silver fringe dress as she hosted the award show.
Lasuzzo wore a simpler outfit, opting for a black suit and a purple tie for the occasion. The 70-year-old made his debut appearance on the red carpet alongside his sweetheart at the 2018 Grammys.
Just last week, McEntire opened up in an interview with PEOPLE about Lasuzzo. Without reservation, she admitted that the pair was "totally in love — absolutely."
She explained in an adorable way:
“I wouldn’t put up with somebody for two years if I wasn’t in love with ’em!”
McEntire was introduced to Lasuzzo by their mutual friends, Kix Brooks and his wife Barbara. The set up took place in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where the singer believed she was enjoying a simple vacation.
She said that Lasuzzo took the lead in guiding her group towards the best locations to sight animals. "We just had the best time," said McEntire. Two nights later, the wildlife photographer joined her for dinner and paid for the meal.
McEntire said she "was not looking," but love happened. After two months, McEntire and Lasuzzo returned to Jackson Hole together. McEntire said: “I was there almost a week and we spent every day together."
Lasuzzo, a widower, has houses in Wyoming and Texas. Still, he and McEntire enjoying "traveling the world and seeing things and having fun," the singer said on the red carpet.

Last month, the pair celebrated their birthdays together by taking a private jet and flying around the country. Specifically, they hit the states Nashville, Los Angeles, and Phoenix.
McEntire shared photos of their celebrations to Instagram along with the caption:
"Skeeter and I had a wonderful birthday MONTH!!"
McEntire was born on March 28 while Lasuzzi is March 27. The singer was seen with a birthday cake, a birthday pie, and even a birthday banana pudding in various shots.
A belated happy birthday to McEntire. We enjoyed seeing her host the ACM awards for the 16th time and now hope her latest album, released on Friday, experiences the success it deserves.
