Martina McBride announces new CD, tour for April

Thursday, January 18, 2007 – Martina McBride will release a new album in April and start her tour that month as well, she announced Thursday.

McBride will release her ninth album, "Waking Up Laughing," which she solo-produced, April 3. "Anyway," the debut single, currently sits in ninth after eight weeks on the country charts, making it her fastest-rising single ever and marks her first songwriting credit. She co-wrote two additional songs on the album as well.

The tour starts in Kansas City on April 12 and a show in Chicago April 14. Joining her for the tour will be 2006 breakout artists Little Big Town ("The Road to Here") and Rodney Atkins ("If You're Going Through Hell").

"As exciting as it is to create a new album, there's nothing quite as thrilling as getting the immediate feedback from a live crowd," said McBride. "I'm especially happy about being joined by Little Big Town and Rodney Atkins. We put a lot of thought into which artists to include on this tour, and I really feel like this show is going to be a treat for my fans from beginning to end. I can't wait to get out there on the road."

CD reviews for Martina McBride

CD review - It's the Holiday Season Martina McBride's second holiday album is called "It's the Holiday Season," and some of this album was tracked at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. So, as you might expect, this music is a throwback to the kinds of albums The Rat Pack (and their contemporaries) once recorded at that same studio mostly in the '60s. 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. ...
