MARTINA MCBRIDE'S "THE JOY OF CHRISTMAS" TOUR TO PLAY THE RYMAN
(Nashville, Tennessee...) -Superstar singer/songwriter Martina McBride is set to bring her Joy of Christmas Tour to Nashville for a one-night-only extravaganza at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday, December 4, 2013. Holiday revelers young and old will celebrate the season, as Martina and her 12-piece band bring their love of the holidays to the Mother Church of Country Music. Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster locations or by calling 800-745-3000, the Ryman box office and www.ryman.com beginning at 10:00am CDT on Friday, August 16, 2013.
"I had so much fun on the Joy Of Christmas tour last year," said Martina. "We didn't get to play Nashville, so I'm really looking forward to bringing the show to my hometown and especially excited to be playing the Ryman again. I love performing there!"
Last year's 16-city tour was a highlight of the holiday season, and at each stop, an athlete, popular radio personality or local celebrity read "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" story, while Martina sang "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch." Former Chicago Bears bone-crunching linebacker Brian Urlacher, Green Bay Packer Jordy Nelson, Pittsburgh Steeler Brett Keisel, tv personality Storme Warren, hockey great Jim Dowd and others shared the stage with the Grammy winner.
In addition, young ballerinas from local studios and schools danced at each concert last year. A large video screen behind the stage depicted wintery street scenes, busy shoppers, snowy mountains and a home video of the McBride's on Christmas morning. Martina delighted the crowed with at least six wardrobe changes each night, and a unique "duet" with Elvis Pressley put fans in the Christmas spirit.
A three-time Academy of Country Music "Top Female Vocalist" award winner, four-time Country Music Association "Female Vocalist of the Year" and GRAMMY®-winning recording artist, Martina McBride has sold more than 18 million albums and garnered numerous #1 hits throughout her career.

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!
Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
