It's no secret that the right song can inspire healing and action, and Martina McBride's recent ballad 'I'm Gonna Love You Through It' is a prime example.

Country quartet Lonestar are doing their part to raise funds and awareness. The band are helping to corral $50,000 for benefit breast cancer research by doing what they do best -- perform.
