Martina McBride joins Dino Martin on Xmas song

Wednesday, August 23, 2006 – Dean Martin may be dead, but that will not stop a new version of a Christmas song coming out with Martina McBride lending her vocals to the song.

Dean Martin's holiday album, "Christmas With Dino," will find McBride sing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" among the 16 songs. The new duet was recorded at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, the same studio where Martin cut his original version of the song in 1959. "Christmas With Dino" will be out Sept. 12.

"There's something about hearing a Dean Martin holiday song," said McBride. "You think, OK, it's time to start the season, it's Christmas time! That's definitely how I feel."

"It's an honor to be able to be a part of this," said McBride. "Dean had such a great voice, and to be able to sing with him all these years later is a thrill."

McBride will perform the new "Baby, It's Cold Outside," duet during her Joy of Christmas tour, now in its fourth year. The 16-city tour kicks off in Chicago on Nov. 24 and runs through Dec. 22.

McBride's version of "Winter Wonderland" is representative of the sort of music she's recorded for this project. It features a full string ...
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 ...
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. ...
