Reba McEntire lucked out by having a co-host at this year's ACM Awards. With Blake Shelton there to take half of the work, McEntire had more time for fun, and took a minute to meet and pose for a funny photo with the hunky Thunder From Down Under strippers.

From the looks of it, Miss Reba loves a nice piece of man meat -- and the topless Australians don't seem to mind the fiery redhead, either. It wasn't all play and no work at the MGM Grand, though. McEntire also laid down a stellar performance of her new single, 'When Love Gets a Hold of You' at the ACMs -- a song about how life plans can run astray when love comes knocking.

'When Love Gets a Hold of You' is the third single from Reba's 2010 album, 'All the Women I Am,’ and the song has big shoes to fill following the success of 'Turn on the Radio' and 'If I Were a Boy.' But anyone who knows country music knows that the carrot-top chart-topper always has her beefcake and eats it, too -- and we're excited to watch the single continue to climb.
