Martina McBride takes a train ride into Los Angeles

Country music superstar Martina McBride took a train ride into Southern California.

McBride arrived at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles Monday morning. It's all part of her 11-city, four-day cross-country train tour, powered by Amtrak.

Even the train was dressed up for the occasion. McBride is promoting the release of her 11th studio album named "Eleven."

She's also promoting breast cancer awareness. The star says her new single "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" inspired her to get involved.

"We all obviously know about breast cancer, but for some reason the song awakened a new passion in me," said McBride. "I've just heard so many stories since I released the song that I just really wanted to get involved and do something to make a difference."

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, McBride also helped present an $11,000 donation to Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
