Martina McBride is a multiple Grammy® nominated country icon, whose incomparable vocals have kept her at the top of the charts garnering six No. 1 hits and twenty top 10 singles. Selling more than 18 million albums to date, McBride has earned 14 Gold, nine Platinum, three Double Platinum and two Triple Platinum certifications. Most recently McBride announced it’s The Holiday Season, a 9-song holiday set for release on October 19th. For this album, McBride collaborated with the late Patrick “Pat” Williams who arranged a set of classic Christmas songs with accompaniment from more than 35 world-class musicians at the famed Capitol Studio in Los Angeles and Blackbird Studio in Nashville.
“The Joy of Christmas is a magical show full of beautiful scenery and classic beloved Christmas music as well as a few hits from my career. It’s a show for the whole family,” McBride says in a press release. “With this tour we create a sort of Christmas winter wonderland. If this show doesn’t leave you full of the Christmas spirit I’m not sure what will!”
In addition to a new tour, this year McBride celebrates 25 years in country music. She credits her fans with her career’s longevity. “I think it comes down to the fans. If they hadn’t been interested, I wouldn’t have had a 25-year career,” she admits. “I have great fans and I think I was really lucky to find great songs and songs that made a difference in people’s lives. Songs like ‘Independence Day,’ ‘Concrete Angel’ and ‘A Broken Wing’ and even ‘This One’s for the Girls.’ When you create something that people take ownership in and bring into their lives and attach meaning to, that’s big.”
On October 30, 2018 Martina McBride will release her new cookbook, Martina’s Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life. The new collection includes nearly 300 pages of family recipes and new creations from her own kitchen.
McBride has been honored with more than 15 major music awards, including four wins from the Country Music Association and three Academy of Country Music Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year.
