McBride gets "Reckless"

Monday, March 14, 2016 – Martina McBride will get "Reckless" in April.

That's because her new CD will drop on April 29 on a new label for her, Nash Icon. The label was formed by Big Machine Label Group for established artists.

McBride debuted the music video for Reckless" with director Jeff Venable. Sarah Buxton, Zach Crowell and Heather Morgan wrote the song.

"This album feels so good," said McBride. "That's the best way I can describe it. I spent a lot of time finding songs that felt personal to me. I figure if I can relate to them someone else will too. There are songs about love, life, hope, loss, leaving and coming home."

Recorded at Nashville's Blackbird Studios, "Reckless" covers classic country and a contemporary edge with producers Nathan Chapman and Dann Huff, according to a press release.

<"And that's what making this album felt like to me....coming home. We took our time and just let the songs and production develop and even though working with Dann and Nathan together was a new experience, somehow we captured a sound that feels like the music I've done my whole career and yet fresh at the same time," said McBride.

The songs are:
1. Reckless
2. It Ain't Pretty
3. Just Around The Corner
4. Everybody Wants To Be Loved
5. Low All Afternoon
6. That's The Thing About Love
7. The Real Thing
8. Diamond
9. We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off
10. You And You Alone

McBride will tour later this year with tour stops in select cities across the U.S. and Canada.

CD reviews for Martina McBride

Reckless CD review - Reckless
Stephen King tells us "Talent is cheaper than table salt." And what a shaker-full is contained on Martina McBride's latest. Songwriters? Hillary Lindsey, Sarah Buxton and Liz Rose are amongst the world's finest. For a producer, how about Faith Hill's or Taylor Swift's? And lest we forget - McBride herself possesses the best, hemi-powered soprano of any working singer today. This is gaudy, Dream Team level stuff. So, why isn't it better? It's been »»»
Everlasting CD review - Everlasting
When an established artist is somewhat "in between" albums, a greatest hits package can often bridge that gap. Or a live album. Or perhaps a cringe-worthy Christmas album. If you're Rod Stewart you can create a cottage industry from old standards. But few decide to try to enhance or pay tribute to old soul songs that can almost never be duplicated. However Martina McBride decided to go down that road on her latest offering with acclaimed producer Don Was helping out. »»»
Hits and More CD review - Hits and More
If you've ever heard Martina McBride sing O Holy Night or Over the Rainbow, maybe you've felt the goosebumps with her unmistakable, soaring soprano. In a genre full of splendid singers, McBride's voice stands atop them all. But, as anybody's who's spent more than five minutes around show business can tell you, having the most talent is only a good start. McBride has had trouble filling albums with songs equal to her instrument, and she's locked horns with her record company. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»

When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry.  »»»

Jon Langford shifts musical gears as effortlessly as a European race car driver on a Grand Prix course.
