TRAIN TAKES THE STAGE WITH MARTINA MCBRIDE IN THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF "CMT CROSSROADS" PREMIERING SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20

NASHVILLE - October 28, 2010 - Country superstar Martina McBride and chart-topping rockers Train will join forces onstage in what promises to be a sensational musical event when CMT CROSSROADS: TRAIN and MARTINA MCBRIDE premieres Saturday, November 20 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT. The one-hour show will tape in Nashville in the upcoming weeks. This will mark McBride's second time appearing on the hit CMT series, the first being paired with Pat Benatar in 2003.

"Performing on CMT CROSSROADS with Martina McBride is an exciting honor for Train," said Pat Monahan, lead vocals, Train. "Martina is an icon in the country music world because her voice is amazing and her songs are timeless. We can't wait to share the Crossroads stage with her and her band."

Over the course of 15 years, Train has made its mark on music history with their GRAMMY(R)-Award-winning song "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)" and popular singles "Hey Soul Sister," "Meet Virginia" and "Calling All Angels." Since forming in San Francisco in 1994, the multi-platinum selling band has traveled a long, successful and sometimes arduous journey. Following their 2006 release, For Me, It's You, the band took a three-year hiatus, and in that time, Train has, for all intents and purposes, experienced an epiphany as a whole. Now, with their fifth album, Save Me San Francisco, Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force - and, in turn, the band is united stronger than ever before. "Hey Soul Sister," the first single from this latest album, is currently the biggest selling single of 2010 and the biggest single download in Columbia Records' history.

One of the most spectacular voices in any genre of music, Martina McBride is a four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year and GRAMMY(R) winning recording artist with more than 18 million in album sales and 24 Top 10 singles, including six that hit #1. The breadth of her talents - as recording artist, producer, songwriter, and concert entertainer - has made her an in-demand performer and personality, appearing on such high-profile programs as VH1 Divas (singing with Jordin Sparks), Dancing with the Stars, the Today show's "Today Throws a Wedding," American Idol, Oprah, The Bachelorette, Private Sessions, a 20/20 special, and much more. Celebrated for her beauty and sense of fashion, as well as her everywoman perspective in life and music, Martina is a wife and mother of three girls who has been featured on the covers of publications like Redbook and Shape. Among her hits are such anthemic and empowering songs as "Independence Day," "This One's for the Girls," and "Ride," all of which have underscored her incredible popularity as one of music's preeminent female vocalists. Her latest album is the chart-topping Shine.

CMT CROSSROADS is produced by Tom Forrest and Kathryn Russ. John Hamlin, Margaret Comeaux and Bill Flanagan serve as executive producers for CMT.
