The 2010 leg of the SunnyD Presents the Shine All Night Tour starring Martina McBride and Trace Adkins kicks off this weekend and fans are getting even more music than they anticipated. Lyric Street recording artist Sarah Buxton will be joining headliners Martina McBride and Trace Adkins for a fun-filled evening of superstar entertainment.
USA Today has declared Sarah Buxton to have “one of the most immediately arresting voices I’ve heard in a while.” She’s appeared on The Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live and has also appeared in the pages of People, Redbook and Country Weekly magazines.
The SunnyD Presents Shine All Night Tour Starring Martina McBride & Trace Adkins kicked off before the Thanksgiving holiday and night after night fans and critics praised the unique pairing.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote, â€œThe two musicians brought together opposite ends of popular country music spectrum to create a cohesive package,â€ â€œMcBride was comfortable straddling the lines between pop star and country girlâ€ and Adkins performance was â€œa hit-filled set that traveled from rowdy fun to emotionally gripping nostalgia and romance.â€
The Oklahoman wrote, â€œBetween McBride’s powerful voice and sassy energy and Adkinsâ€™ rowdy honky tonk and heartfelt ballads, the pair’s Shine All Night tour seemed to thrill the near capacity Ford Center crowd.â€
The evening runs the gamut of emotional release combining countless radio hits and award-winning music. Songs flavored with boisterous revelry, sexy romance and honest reflection leave fans no choice but to dance in the aisles, fist wave, chant and hold on tight to loved ones while remembering what matters most.
Enthusiastic crowd reaction and highly animated audience participation has proven McBride has shattered all illusions of a sit-in-your-seat-and-clap-politely evening as the superstar entertainer unveiled surprise after surprise during her impressive 90 minute set of hit country music, costume changes, and elaborate production and staging.
A well-seasoned performer, Adkins delivers a solid, crowd-pleasing show that includes a string of hits the platinum-seller has collected since launching his career in 1996. He balances each show with light-hearted romps like “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing,” “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” “Hot Mama,” and “Ladies Love Country Boys,” with emotionally charged ballads such as “I’m Tryin,'” “Arlington,” “You’re Gonna Miss This” and “All I Ask For Anymore.” The Grammy-nominated singer instantly energizes his audience the minute he steps on the stage and keeps concertgoers pumped up throughout the entire set.
The Shine All Night Tour, also sponsored in part by GAC, kicked off November 20th and covers 40 cities across the U.S. through the spring of this year. Both McBride and Adkins will each perform full-length shows and Sarah Buxton will be their special guest.
