STARRING MARTINA MCBRIDE AND TRACE ADKINS
The Beverage Company’s First Endeavor into Music Delivers a Unique Pairing to Celebrate the Spirit of America
Nashville, Tenn. (October 5, 2009) – She’s one hot mama and he’s a tall drink of water. His rich baritone voice can bring the house down while her soaring, unparalleled vocals lift the roof off. He’s garnered legions of fans with his anthems that inspire and champion America’s heroes and she’s made a name worldwide as a premier female vocalist with hits that entertain, raise awareness and deliver hope.
Together, country music superstars Martina McBride and Trace Adkins have created an exceptional evening flavored with boisterous revelry, sexy romance and honest reflection. With their countless hits and fan favorites combined, fans will be dancing in the aisles to “God-Fearin’ Women” and “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” fist waving to the likes of “This One’s For the Girls” and “Songs About Me,” holding on tight with “I Just Call You Mine” and “All I Ask for Anymore” and remembering what matters most with “In My Daughter’s Eyes” and “You’re Gonna Miss This.”
Add heartbreak with “Every Light in the House” and “Concrete Angel,” a touch of vengeance with “Independence Day” and “Fightin’ Words” and this event covers the gamut of emotional release.
The Shine All Night Tour, also sponsored in part by GAC, kicks off November 20th and covers 40 cities across the U.S. through the spring of 2010. Both McBride and Adkins will each perform full-length shows. In a few select cities, Blake Shelton and The Lost Trailers will be joining McBride ensuring that every night will be packed with great music and fun times — both on stage and in the audience.
“I want fans to leave here knowing they got more than their money’s worth,” says Martina. “My goal is to have this on their list of memorable nights for years to come.”
“I think this tour is going to give people a lot more bang for their buck,” says Adkins. “And that’s important –especially in today’s economy.”
