Reba McEntire has denied participating in a fundraiser for South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem.
The 66-year-old country music star told her followers on social media on Friday that her name was misused in advertising for the event.
“Last night, without my knowledge, and without our permission, an invitation to a political fundraiser was sent out in my name.” McEntire wrote.
“I did not have any plans to attend this event and I have communicated this to the organizers,” she continued. “Throughout my career I have stated that I will not get involved in politics and that is still the case today.”

Noem has been Governor of South Dakota since January 2019. A Noem representative did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
The event poster was shared by a reporter on Twitter and featured actors Red Steagall and McEntire as “special guests”.

Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, Montana Senator Steve Daines and Montana Congressman Matt Rosendale are also listed as attendees for the event, which will take place on Sunday June 13 at the Cross Ranch Track in Gallatin Gateway, Montana , to be held.
Tickets listed are $ 500 per person and $ 1,000 per couple.
McEntire is notoriously private about her political standpoint. In 2017 when she appeared on The View, she told the hosts, “I take it this way: [Fans] paid their hard earned money to get in there and occupy a seat – park, buy something from the food stand, eat before the concert – I’m there to entertain them, to take their worries away, so when they go out, they can have a little boost in their crotch and [go]’Aw, that was such a great change from all the problems I struggle with in everyday life.’ “

“So I’m not going to share my political views with them. It’s not my place, ”she explained. “That is my job to entertain. It shouldn’t be my platform to be on stage and express my political views. “
