6 Degrees of Martina McBride (ABC): New. Not a big country music fan, but the idea behind this show sounds interesting. Six country singers from around the country were given the opportunity to show they could get in contact with Martina McBride via the Six Degrees of Separation idea. If they could, then they would sing before and audience and the three best would then get a chance to learn a song and sing in studio with the help of Martina. Then a panel of judges would pick the winner. The winner’s song will be released tonight on iTunes and other online music outlets. Runs two hours.
