Fan Fair Schedule Announced

Posted on Saturday, April 20 2002

Martina will be performing on the CMT Flameworthy Award show on Wednesday night, the RCA Label Show on Thursday night at the Adelphia Coliseum, and she will also once again take part in the YWCA Charity Auction on Sunday.

There is no Fan Fair fan club party this year, and Martina will not have a booth at Fan Fair. Martina will be continuing her fan club meet  and greet program during her upcoming tour, so if you want to meet Martina your best chance is still to sign up for her fan club and attend a show in your area!

They used to be known as the "Music City News/TNN Awards," then the "CMT Country Weekly Awards." This year they're called the "CMT Flameworthy Music Video Awards." They're the fan-voted awards presented during a live show from Nashville during Fan Fair and are regarded as one of the three major country awards shows (along with the CMA's and the ACM's).

Martina is nominated in four categories in this preliminary round of voting:

Female Video Of The Year (Blessed)
Video Concept of the Year (God-Fearin' Women)
Fashion Plate Video of the Year (Blessed)
LOL (Laugh out Loud) Video of the Year (God-Fearin' Women)

In addition, Deaton-Flannigan received a nomination in the Video Director of the Year category for "Blessed." The voting in the semi-final round started Tuesday (April 16) and will continue through Sunday, May 12. This round of voting will determine the
five nominees in each category for the final round of voting. Final  nominees will be announced and second round voting will begin Tuesday, May 14.

Let's help Martina become a final nominee in all five categories. You must register at CMT and each registered user can only vote once. To vote, go to:

The awards will be broadcast live on CMT Wednesday, June 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.


Carolyn Dawn Johnson is launching her official fan club and has tapped our very own Martina-Webmaster Darren O'Neill to run it!
As most of you know, CDJ was formerly a member of Martina's band, so she's family. In addition to being a hot new country artist, she's also an acclaimed songwriter (Chely Wright's "Single White Female"). She can be heard singing harmony on "I Love You" and "Blessed."  Here's your chance to join Carolyn's fan club on the ground floor (and get a really low membership number). For all of the details, go to:

Hey Martina fans,

"Blessed" has hit #1 on both the Billboard and R&R Country Charts for a SECOND week!! Congrats to Martina and songwriters Hillary Lindsey, Troy Verges and Brett James. "Blessed" was produced by Martina and Paul Worley.

Martina wishes to thank all of her fans who support her by calling radio stations to request her singles. And thanks to all of the folks at Country Radio for the spins. It's only with your support and dedication that things like this are possible!!

On eBay you can check out a pair of boots designed by Martina!!

They are chocolate brown and caramel leather upper with stitch detailing. Cut outs form floral design - exposed olive green leather forms "leaves" and red suede forms "flowers." Calf height, full pair, side zip, 2" heel, size 6.5. One-of-a-kind.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund(TM)  , a program created by Citizens' Scholarship Foundation of America to provide educational assistance for post-secondary study to financially needy dependents of
those killed or permanently disabled as as result of the incidents on September 11th. The true sprit of country music is rooted in humanity and sentiment. It is for this reason that Easy Spirit, a brand inspired by the feelings, desires, and realities of life, has chosen to build a call-to-action program that will help the families of the victims of September 11th realize their educational dreams.
Bidding ends on April 11.
