Martina McBride is the latest artist to cancel her March 2014 appearance at SeaWorld in Orlando due to the allegations of orca whale abuse at the park, alleged in the documentary, Blackfish.

McBride posted a message on her Facebook page, saying, “I’ve decided that given all  the issues that have been aired recently, the time isn’t right for me to play at SeaWorld.”

Willie Nelson and Trisha Yearwood are among the other stars in recent weeks who have cancelled concerts at SeaWorld’s upcoming Bands, Brews & BBQ event. The park plans to begin the weekend concert series February 1, 2014, despite the cancellations.
