Martina McBride Announces Band Against Cancer Tour Details
The news of Martina McBride's partnership with Sarah Cannon and Band Against Cancer for a tour came earlier this year, and the singer has finally announced details.
The tour kicks off mid-September in Dallas, and hits a couple of other Texas cities before stopping in Colorado and finally making its way to Nashville. When the tour comes to Music City, McBride will be performing at a historic venue — the Grand Ole Opry. That's one impressive final tour stop!
McBride is bringing along Thompson Square, Cassadee Pope and Hudson Moore for the shows. The Nashville stop will include more artists who are yet to be announced. They'll all come together for these shows, with some of the proceeds benefiting the Sarah Cannon Fund at Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Be the Match. These programs go towards helping individuals fighting cancer — a cause that is near and dear to McBride's heart.
McBride released her latest album, Reckless, earlier this year, and one of the album's songs will be the campaign's anthem. Her emotional "Just Around the Corner" is the perfect anthem for such an important cause. It'll also be used in a contest which fans can enter, but only one will win. The winner and one friend will join McBride at the Grand Ole Opry show on Oct. 26.
