In what could very well be a first for country music, Martina McBride will be performing with Train‘s Pat Monahan in a very special ceremony during next week’s 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The pair will perform their duet “Marry Me” from her album “Eleven” during the telecast.. and a lucky couple will be married right on the stage! It will be a dream come true for Christina Davidson and Frank Tucci, who were invited by Martina for this ACM first.
Christina met Frank while grieving the loss of her husband and raising two sons on her own when she was working with a support group she started for widows and widowers in Washington Township, New Jersey. Frank had tragically lost his wife, Danielle, to to thyroid cancer the same year. Their friendship quickly blossomed into love as they bonded over raising a family on their own, and their emotions. They will share their exciting new chapter of their lives together in front of millions on the ACM stage. Fans can follow all the details on their wedding at ACMWedding.com.
The ACMs air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on CBS at 8 pm EST on April 1st.
