Martina McBride Speaks Out Against Teen Dating Abuse

Martina McBride will be the spokesperson for the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline’s new program, called My Time to Shine. She will promote the organization during her media appearances and will also show a public service announcement prior to her concerts. “Young people today have more opportunities to make decisions about their lives, and it places a lot of pressure on them early,” said McBride. “If we can help them to form healthy relationships at an earlier age in life, they will make better choices for life partners, and as a mom, I want to be part of that.” McBride is the mother of three daughters. Her new album, released Tuesday (March 24), is titled Shine.
