[via press release from CBS]

MARTINA McBRIDE AND PAT MONAHAN TO PERFORM THE SONG "MARRY ME," AND LIVE WEDDING CEREMONY TO TAKE PLACE ONSTAGE DURING THEIR PERFORMANCE, ON THE "47th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS," TO BE BROADCAST LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS SUNDAY, APRIL 1 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Country music star Martina McBride and Train frontman Pat Monahan are scheduled to perform McBride's new single "Marry Me" on the 47th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 1 (8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. To celebrate the message of the song, McBride and Monahan will perform the duet during a very special moment in the show, when a couple will get married live onstage during their performance.

For the first time in ACM Awards history - and perhaps any awards show history - a live wedding ceremony will take place onstage during the performers' "Marry Me" duet, which is McBride's current single from her latest album, Eleven. The song was written by Monahan and originally released in 2010 as the third single from Train's chart-topping fifth studio album, Save Me, San Francisco.

McBride personally selected the lucky recipients of the onstage nuptials. Couple Christina Davidson and Frank Tucci thought they would never find love again. In July 2009, Frank lost his wife, Danielle, to thyroid cancer and in that same year, Christina lost her husband, Paul, in a tragic drowning accident. As a way to deal with the grief of losing her husband and raising her two sons, Stephen and Paul, on her own, Christina started a support group for young widows and widowers in Washington Township, N.J. where she met Frank. Slowly their friendship blossomed into love as they bonded over their shared views about the challenges of single parenthood and the struggles to keep the memories of their spouses alive. Their wedding will mark a new chapter in their lives, an intimate moment which they will graciously share onstage. The bride will be wearing an Oleg Cassini gown as she recites her vows. Fans can also follow Christina and Frank along their journey to the chapel at www.ACMwedding.com.

McBride and Monahan join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Chris Young, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts.

Martina McBride is a three-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year and is nominated again this year in the same category. She was awarded the Academy's Humanitarian Award in 2003 for her charitable work and, in 2011, was honored by ACM Lifting Lives(R) for her dedication to raising social consciousness of domestic violence and encouraging female empowerment through songs. Her latest album, Eleven, includes 11 new tracks, six of which she co-wrote. Her current single, "Marry Me," features Train's Pat Monahan and is the follow-up to her 25th career Top 10 single, "I'm Gonna Love You Through It."

Pat Monahan is the lead singer and songwriter for the GRAMMY(R) Award-winning band Train. The San Francisco-based multi-platinum group's fifth studio album, Save Me, San Francisco, was certified platinum with three Billboard Hot 100 singles - "If It's Love," "Marry Me" and the GRAMMY-winning smash hit, "Hey, Soul Sister." "Hey, Soul Sister" was the biggest-selling single of 2010 and hit #1 on the radio in the U.S. and 15 countries abroad. Train's new album, California 37, is due out April 17 and will include the single "Drive By."

The 47th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, dedicated to honoring and showcasing the biggest names and emerging talent in the country music industry, is produced for television by dick clark productions. Orly Adelson and R.A. Clark ar Ge executive producers. Barry Adelman is producer, and Bob Bardo is the executive in charge of production. Bob Romeo is executive producer for the Academy of Country Music.
