Check out the zany way the “Today” show cast celebrated the icons of country

We’ve come to look forward to seeing what the “Today” show cast will wear every Halloween. They always seem to take it to the next level, and usually have a fun theme that all of the hosts follow.

The real Reba McEntire introduced the cast and for longtime country fans, it will be obvious who Carson Daly, Al Roker, Megyn Kelly, Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford, Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer are dressed like.

Guess away! You’ve got this!

Billy Ray wasn’t the only country star actually on the premises. Blake Shelton was there in person, and after some fun with the “Today” hosts, he headed over to the plaza for a special Halloween concert.

That sounds like a trick- and treat-filled kind of Halloween!
