When David Lowman says he has performed as Reba McEntire, he’s not just being an over-the-top drag queen.

“I actually toured with Reba McEntire for two years, in her concert,” says Lowman, who works as a female illusionist under the name Coti Collins. Lowman acted as McEntire’s surrogate, lip-synching onstage while the country star made quick costume changes. “It was kind of a magical illusion. I was never revealed” — other than being listed in the credits. McEntire had personally hired Collins for the work after catching an illusion show in Nashville.
