|Martina McBride to Perform Labor Day Weekend at 2010 Nebraska State Fair|
Grand Island, NE– Martina McBride, four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, adds an additional element of excitement to the final weekend of the 2010 Nebraska State Fair. Her consistent level of musical integrity has been rewarded with more than 18 million in album sales and 22 Top 10 singles, six of which hit the top of the charts.
The concert begins at 8:00p.m. on Sunday, September 5, 2010 at the Heartland Events Center. Tickets are $25 plus gate admission to the Fair and standard Ticketmaster fees. Tickets will be available mid-June.
Martina’s tenth studio album (all on RCA Records Nashville), Shine, is titled not only as a nod to the lyrics in three of the songs encompassed within, but because of what the word ‘shine’ suggests: Powerful. Positive. Strong. The fresh sound is immediately noticeable right from the opening guitar lick of "Wrong Baby Wrong Baby Wrong." However, not everything on Shine falls under the realm of new. Always one to successfully straddle that fine line between staying innovative and remaining familiar, Martina brings her signature bombastic vocals to songs like "Walk Away" and "What Do I Have To Do." The songs that make up Shine are, as always, the essence of Martina.
The 2010 Entertainment Series is presented by the Nebraska Lottery and sponsored by Bristol Windows. Additions to the 2010 Entertainment Series will be released soon.
It’s a Grand Affair! The 141st edition of the Nebraska State Fair opens Friday, August 27 and runs through Labor Day, Monday, September 6, 2010 at Fonner Park in Grand Island, NE. For more information on the Nebraska State Fair, visit www.statefair.org.
