A surprise for Martina
-- Martina McBride is the newest recipient of the prestigious Minnie Pearl Humanitarian Award, presented annually for outstanding humanitarian and community contributions.
Vince Gill made the presentation on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, Saturday night.

The Minnie Pearl Award is named after its first recipient, Minnie Pearl (Sarah Ophelia Cannon), who received the honor in 1988.

Although she never met the late Opry legend, McBride said receiving the award was like getting a big hug from Minnie.

Past recipients include Alabama, Roy Clark, Reba McEntire, Amy Grant, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Barbara Mandrell, Tennessee Ernie Ford and Roy Acuff.http://www.countrynation.com/
