Martina McBride to Sing 'Marry Me' as Couple Gets Married Live at ACM Awards


Martina McBride


The 'I Just Call You Mine' singer is scheduled to make a duet with Train's frontman Pat Monahan to provide a theme song for the live wedding ceremony.

There will be something special at the upcoming Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards. In the history of ACM Awards, and perhaps any awards history, a live wedding ceremony will take place onstage with Martina McBride serenading the bride and the groom.

McBride is scheduled to perform "Marry Me", a song taken from Train's CD "Save Me San Francisco". The country music singer re-recorded it for her latest album "Eleven", and will perform it at the ACM Awards with Train's lead singer Pat Monahan.

Christina Davidson and Frank Tucci will tie the knot on the ACM stage. They were handpicked by McBride who's moved by their inspirational story. Frank lost his wife, Danielle, to thyroid cancer in the same year when Christina lost her husband, Paul, in a tragic drowning accident.

As a way to deal with the grief of losing her husband, 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.

Celebrating its 47th anniversary, 2012 ACM Awards will be held on April 1 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Other performers include Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts.
