Martina McBride is 7th to cancel SeaWorld performance

Martina McBride became the seventh act to back out of SeaWorld Orlando's Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival amid online pressure spurred by the documentary "Blackfish" which criticized the water park's treatment of whales.

"I've decided that given all the issues that have been aired recently, that time isn't right for me to play at SeaWorld," McBride said on her official Facebook page Saturday afternoon. "I have canceled my scheduled performance."

McBride's announcement came a day after REO Speedwagon dropped out. Cheap Trick, Barenaked Ladies, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood and Heart have also canceled their performances.

The concert series is scheduled to run from Feb. 1 to March 9, 2014. or 407-420-5447
