– Martina McBride and Trace Adkins may not seem to be the most obvious of partners, but the two will hit the concert trail together starting in November and ending in April.
The Shine All Night Tour, sponsored by SunnyD's and in part by GAC, covers 40 cities across the U.S. Both McBride and Adkins will each perform full-length shows. In a few select cities, Blake Shelton and The Lost Trailers will be joining McBride.
"I want fans to leave here knowing they got more than their money's worth," said d McBride. "My goal is to have this on their list of memorable nights for years to come."
"I think this tour is going to give people a lot more bang for their buck," said Adkins. "And that's important - especially in today's economy."
This is SunnyD's first music partnership. Sunny Delight Beverages, based in Cincinnati, is a producer of juice-based drinks in North America and Europe.
McBride and Adkins starred in a series of irreverent TV commercials which will be featured on GAC, local television and online. In the spots, the two go for the laughs at their own and each other's expense.
