McBride loves her Cheerios
Tuesday, June 29, 2010
– Martina McBride apparently believes in eating her Cheerios because she is partnering with Cheerios, in the "Do What You Love" Contest.
Winners will have the chance of a lifetime to tour McBride's Nashville recording studio or to play catch with baseball star Cal Ripken Jr.
"I've been fortunate to do what I love my entire life, and I take care of myself now more than ever. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America, but far too few of us understand how our everyday habits affect our heart health," said McBride. "Making smart, heart healthy lifestyle choices is key, which is why I am excited to team up with Cheerios to award people who put their hearts first."
One music lover will tour the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with McBride, hang out with her in her recording studio and get VIP tickets to one of her upcoming concerts.
To enter, Americans must submit a 150-250 word original story and photo. The story and photo must showcase what they love to do and how they take care of themselves so they can continue to do it.
The Cheerios "Do What You Love" The contest runs through July 23 with winners notified the week of Aug. 10.

And lest we forget - McBride herself possesses the best, hemi-powered soprano of any working singer today. This is gaudy, Dream Team level stuff. So, why isn't it better?

When an established artist is somewhat "in between" albums, a greatest hits package can often bridge that gap. Or a live album. Or perhaps a cringe-worthy Christmas album. If you're Rod Stewart you can create a cottage industry from old standards.
But few decide to try to enhance or pay tribute to old soul songs that can almost never be duplicated. However Martina McBride decided to go down that road on her latest offering with acclaimed producer Don Was helping out. ...
