Martina McBrideThis year’s YWCA celebrity auction hosted by Martina McBride raised $102,289 during the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. Sunday’s (June 13) event benefited the YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee. The highest bids of the day were two $11,000 offers for handwritten, autographed and framed lyrics for “She’s a Butterfly.” Big Kenny, who co-wrote the song, assisted McBride in the auction. Other high bids included $6,000 for a Brad Paisley meet-and-greet and guitar, $4,600 for an autographed and framed Grand Ole Opry poster announcing McBride’s induction into the Opry and $3,800 for a Keith Urban meet-and-greet and an autographed DVD. The money raised at this year’s auction is a 29 percent increase above last year’s total. McBride has hosted the charity auction since 1995.

Hard to believe it’s been decades since country music’s big renaissance blossomed in the ’80s when Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis and Clint Black became household names. To celebrate the genre’s big week with Billboard’s Country Summit and the CMT Music Awards, we’ve combed the Billboard Hot Country Songs and Top Country Albums charts to rank the top 25 country artists of the last 25 years (1985-2010).
Check Out where Martina ranks!
