Martina McBride along with Pat Monahan of Train will be performing at the ACM Awards on Sunday night, for what Martina describes as “a powerful moment in the show.” They will be performing a duet “Marry Me” for a LIVE ACM wedding. “Pat had the song out with his band Train as a single about two years ago” Martina states, “and we performed the song on CMT Crossroads.”

As for the ACM Award show wedding story, Martina tells us “I was so moved by it. They both lost spouses in 2009 they found each other through a support group – became friends and fell in love,  just the fact that love can come out of a tragedy like that is so spacial. I got to spend a little bit of time with them. . .they are great people.”

Does she get nervous before a big show?  “Well yes, you wanna do a great job , it’s live television, and my parents are watching, plus it’s a room full of peers. Having a partner to sing with takes some of that a way, makes it easier.”

Martina just celebrated her daughter Emma’s 14th birthday by baking a cake (Yes stars are people too.) Steve Grunwald brings up the fact that it’s like night and day. One minute you are on stage and the next you are home baking cookies and cupcakes.

Pat Monahan adds, “thats the best part of life – sometimes being creative and having to be on – has to have a balance – baking cookies and cakes – that’s a good balance!”

Martina tells how it is “one big life all rolled into one thing.” “I’m lucky that I have such a wonderful family and husband.” She continues by sharing a family tradition. “There’s a cake mix called ‘Funfetti’ and my kids love me to make that for their birthdays.”

Pat jokingly adds that “the only thing the guys in Train want me to bake is vodka.”  Maybe Martina needs to adopt them!  Pretty certain her teenage daughters wouldn’t mind that a bit!

“Marry Me” lyrics

Forever can never be long enough for me

To feel like I’ve had long enough with you

Forget the world now we won’t let them see

But there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted

Love has surely shifted my way

Marry Me

Today and every day

Marry Me

If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Together can never be close enough for me

Feel like I am close enough to you

You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you

And you’re beautiful

Now that the wait is over

And love and has finally shown her my way

Marry me

Today and every day

Marry me

If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Promise me

You’ll always be

Happy by my side

I promise to

Sing to you

When all the music dies

And marry me

Today and everyday

Marry me

If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Say you will

Marry me

Mm-hmm
