Martina McBride Joins Oprah at the State Fair of Texas
Martina McBride helped the people of the Lone Star State welcome Oprah Winfrey to the State Fair of Texas in Dallas on Sunday (Oct. 11). The talk show queen was at the nation's largest fair to tape a special episode the following day.
Decked out western wear, the iconic Oprah told the crowd, ""[I'm wearing] my new Stetson and my new boots I bought yesterday. I'm all 'Texified.'"
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Oprah and best friend, Gayle King, spent much of Sunday sampling a wide variety of fried foods.
"Gayle and I have eaten our way through the fair," Oprah told the crowd that had gathered to watch the show taping. "I think I'm in a food coma." (No word on whether Oprah indulged in one of the fair's signature treats -- fried butter!)
Martina offered up selections from her latest album, 'Shine,' as well as the empowering 'This One's for the Girls.'
The taping also featured designer Nate Berkus hanging out with Dolly. No, not superstar Dolly Parton, but a grand champion dairy cow by that name! Also on hand were the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.
No air date has been announced for the episode, but it is due to run sometime this fall.
