     "The Martha White Theme Song is one of the most popular things we play --
 you can't go to a bluegrass festival without hearing it," said Rhonda Vincent.
 Vincent is currently touring with her band, The Rage, on the Martha White
 Bluegrass Express Tour Bus in the tradition of Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and
 Alison Krauss.
     The Martha White Theme Song was made famous by Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs
 and the Foggy Mountain Boys who were hired in 1953 to barnstorm the
 countryside singing the praises of Martha White.  Soon known as the "World's
 Greatest Flour Peddlers," the group began singing a catchy jingle, "You Bake
 Right With Martha White," that captured the fancy of bluegrass and country
 fans worldwide.  Today, the famous jingle is a bluegrass standard.
     Ten (10) Grand Prize winners will receive a trip for two to Nashville,
 Tenn., to sing on the Opry stage with Marty Stuart and Rhonda Vincent on
 March 9, 2002.  Fifty (50) First Prize winners will receive the Martha White
 Bluegrass compilation CD, signed by Marty Stuart.  Five hundred (500) Second
 Prize winners will receive the Martha White Bluegrass compilation CD.
     Martha White, the leading brand of Southern baking mixes and ingredients,
 was founded in 1899 in Nashville, Tenn.
