Austin, Texas,—Country Superstar Martina McBride kicked off her Shine All Night Tour to shine the spotlight on teen dating abuse. Martina’s teenage daughter Delaney is joining her mother on a mission to educate teens and parents about teen dating abuse. In a new concert video that plays during the tour to thousands of fans across the country, Delaney interviews her mom and the music industry’s top stars on the Red Carpet at the Country Music Television awards to bring awareness to the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline (NTDAH). The video features messages from Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Trace Adkins, Little Big Town, Randy Jackson, Michelle Branch, Kellie Pickler, Zac Brown Band, T-Pain, Gloriana and many more entertainment stars who are standing up against teen dating abuse.

As the mother of three daughters, the four-time CMA Female Vocalist is passionate about the need to increase awareness for teens and parents about teen dating abuse, and about how to develop healthy relationships. “Sometimes teens aren’t real comfortable talking with their parents and there might be something going on with them. They are thinking this doesn’t quite feel right, but, I’m not sure if it is right or if it is wrong, or if this is what dating is supposed to feel like. You can go to and get the right answers. I think that’s really cool,” said McBride. During the Shine All Night Tour, concertgoers are receiving mech bags that include postcards promoting loveisrespect and exclusive
T-shirts that are only available online at Martina’s website. Ten tickets are also being donated in each city of the tour with proceeds going to the teen helpline.

My Time to Shine was developed for Martina’s Shine CD and tour around the concept that the teen years should be a young person’s time to shine—the time in their lives when they discover who they are, what their talents are and how to have healthy relationships. It is also an opportunity for her to include her teenage daughter, Delaney, in a cause they can both relate to. Recent research has shown that one in three girls who have been in a serious relationship say they’ve been concerned about being physically hurt by their partner. Today’s teens also face added pressures because of technology like constant texting and digital dating abuse.

When Martina released Independence Day in 1994, she never dreamed that the song would resonate so powerfully with victims of family violence. It opened her eyes to the issue and changed her life. On concert tours, Martina began visiting high schools to talk to young women about self worth. My Time to Shine is a new opportunity for Martina to bring awareness to teen dating abuse.
