New music hits stores today plus Trace talks about his upcoming CD and Martina talks crossover

Some new music hit stores today! Alan Jackson released his new album "Freight Train" and Gretchen Wilson offers up "I Got Your Country Right Here", her first album for her label, Redneck Records.

Trace Adkins says a big reason he signed with Toby Keith's Show Dog Records was that he just wanted to have more fun and that's just what he's working on doing with his new CD. He says, "It's a real 'up' record. There's only a couple of slow songs included." No word yet on a title for the album, but it should be out in July.

Martina McBride doesn't care if country music crosses over to contemporary charts, or if pop, rock or urban stars record country albums. She tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "I have no problem with how people get here as long as they make good music. Country music has always had music that crossed over."

Wonder how much a lunch with Reba would cost you? Well more than just the price of a couple of sandwiches. A private lunch with Reba McEntire sold for 900-thousand dollars *gasp* at last weekend's 2010 Celebrity Fight Night. Three men combined their cash to win the opportunity to dine with Reba for good cause. Money raised at the event benefits Muhammad Ali's Parkinson's Center.
