Krista Marie Partners with
Proceeds from "Drive It Like I Stole It"
Ringtone Donated to Cause
Nashville, TN (3/13/2009) - Singer/songwriter
Krista Marie and her powerhouse label Broken Bow/Holeshot
Records are donating 100% of their profits from
the sale of her "Drive It Like I Stole It"
ringtone to B.R.A.K.E.S., the nonprofit organization
founded by drag racer Doug Herbert that promotes
safe and responsible driving. Fans can purchase
the ringtone by texting DRIVEIT to 26220.
Krista Marie co-wrote and sang, "Drive It
Like I Stole It," which is the theme song
for ESPN's coverage of NHRA drag racing's 2009
season. She recently connected with Harley-Davidson
motorcycles and Screamin' Eagle racing in support
of Harley-Davidson's efforts to encourage women
"With my motorsports background and the
fact that I'm traveling more and more with my
music career, I couldn't think of a better organization
to partner with than B.R.A.K.E.S.," said
Krista Marie. "Doug (Herbert) started this
organization so parents wouldn't have to go through
the heartache his family has gone through, and
I'm so thankful Benny (Brown) is right beside
us on this."
Herbert formed B.R.A.K.E.S., which stands for Be
Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe, after losing
his two sons, ages 12 and 17, in a tragic automobile
accident early last year. The mission of the organization
is to prevent injuries and save lives by training
and educating teenage drivers and their parents
about the importance of safe and responsible driving.
"I think it's great that Krista is supporting
B.R.A.K.E.S.," said Herbert, a 10-time national
event winner. "I met her last year when she
was filming the video for 'Drive It Like I Stole
It', and I told her about the organization and
what we're doing to keep teen drivers safe. She
came to me with this idea and I was very excited.
I think it's a really fun and creative way to
raise money for B.R.A.K.E.S."

"Krista has a passion for anything that
has to do with music and horsepower, and that
includes safety on the road," said Broken
Bow Records founder Benny Brown. "I'm proud
of this partnership and look forward to raising
a lot of money for B.R.A.K.E.S."
Krista is finishing work on her debut album
for Broken Bow/Holeshot Records. Her first single,
"Jeep Jeep," will begin hitting radio
airwaves April 27, 2009. Fans can learn more about
