Martina McBride, Huey Lewis and the News lead A Taste of Pinellas music lineup




To the best of our knowledge, Martina McBride hasn't played Tampa Bay since the 2007 Strawberry Festival. But with two local shows in three months, she's making up for lost time.

Days after it was announced the country diva would appear on Tampa's Lilith Fair stop on Aug. 11, it looks like McBride is also lined up as one of the headliners at this year's A Taste of Pinellas festival, June 4-6 at Vinoy Park in downtown St. Petersburg.

Huey Lewis and the News, Lonestar and Drew Seely -- the actor and singer who served as the singing voice for Zac Efron in High School Musical -- are also headlining the event, which is a fundraiser for All Children's Hospital and featuers food from dozens of Pinellas restaurants.

You wanna talk about a sweet deal -- admission is only $5 per day on Saturday and Sunday, and free on Sunday. (Tasting tickets are extra.) The complete lineup (so far) by day:

Firday (June 4): Huey Lewis and the News, Greg Billings Band, Shawn Brown Band

Saturday (6/5): Martina McBride, Lonestar, Rebecca Henricks, Suite Caroline, Dive Bar Stalkers, Backyard Bone Band, John Kelly Band

Sunday (6/6): Drew Seely, Gabi, School Gyrls, Michelle Raitzin, Adam 812, Holes and Hearts
