NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country star Martina McBride is on track to release her new album, "Eleven," next month with a cross-country train ride.

The four-day, exclusive trip will take her from Los Angeles to New York and make 11 stops along the way. She'll perform intimate concerts for fans in Albuquerque, N.M., Chicago and New York.

The tour is called "'Eleven' Across America Powered By Amtrak."

The Grammy-winning singer says she's excited about this journey.

"Eleven" is McBride's 11th studio album. She was recently named the most played female artist on country radio for the past 11 years by Mediabase and Broadcast Data Systems.

McBride has sold more than 18 million albums. She's had six No. 1 hits including "Wild Angels" and "A Broken Wing."
