Country Superstar Martina McBride made a Midwest trek over the weekend as part of her One Night theater tour and sold out all three shows. The powerhouse vocalist shared stories, favorite songs and more with packed houses at the Shooting Star Casino (Mahnomen, MN); Surf Ballroom (Clearlake, IA) and Honeywell Center (Wabash, IN).
Wanting to share a special experience with her fans, McBride also took to Twitter for setlist ideas and giveaways, providing yet another way to connect. Just before the Wabash, IN show, McBride helped make a special moment for a mother and daughter, gifting them tickets to the concert.
McBride is not only helping create memories for the audience, but is experiencing them herself. “I love performing in places with history where you can almost hear musicians from the past. Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and The Big Bopper played their last show at The Surf Ballroom where we were on Saturday so I wanted to perform the Buddy Holly classic, "That'll Be The Day," said McBride. The show was over two hours long and earned her two encores.
Throughout most of the summer, she will engage with fans during the One Night tour, but on May 27, McBride will head to Indianapolis, IN to sing the national anthem at the 96th Indianapolis 500. A couple of weeks later, on June 10, she will headline the CMA Music Festival’s LP Field show in Nashville.
