WHEN OPRAH CALLS… Martina McBride Makes Her 2nd Oprah Appearance in Less than 8 Days!
Nashville, Tenn. (October 30, 2009) – Superstar Martina McBride makes her second appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in barely a week as she follows her performance this past Monday on Oprah’s State Fair of Texas episode with a return visit on November 3rd. Last Monday’s show actually taped two weeks prior but the amazing part was that Martina got the call on a Friday and by Monday morning was on the Texas stage singing. This time, the Oprah segment takes Martina to her home state of Kansas with only a couple days notice.
The theme of the November 3rd show is celebrities’ “first jobs,” and who better to be one of the featured guests than Martina who served up ice cream and burgers at her hometown DQ. Oprah’s crew took Martina back to revisit the Hutchinson, Kansas, Dairy Queen which is still owned by the same couple who employed Martina after high school.
“Getting the call to be on Oprah’s show twice in such a short time period was exciting,” admits McBride. “I’ve done Texas and Kansas … maybe Oklahoma is next,” McBride jokes.
McBride also recently taped a segment in Nashville for In The Spotlight With Robin Roberts: Bright Lights. Big Stars. All Access Nashville. The ABC special gives viewers an unprecedented, all-access pass into the homes and private lives of country music’s biggest stars, and introduces America to the up-and-coming singer/songwriters working to become Nashville’s next hit sensations. The special will air November 10 on ABC at 10:00/9:00pm central.
McBride’s Shine All Night Tour presented by SunnyD starring Trace Adkins 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. Visit www.shineallnight.com for tour dates, exclusive content and more.
Martina is currently nominated for CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, an award she has won 4 times, tying her with Reba McEntire for the most wins. The 2009 CMA Awards will air November 11th on ABC at 8:00/7:00 central.
