McBride announces fall tour

Monday, August 25, 2014 – Martina McBride's 'Everlasting' Tour will continue through the fall with 40 additional dates - 7 of which have already sold-out.

Backed by an 11-piece band - including trumpet, tenor sax, baritone sax and trombone and a trio of back-up singers - McBride's live show brings the sounds of the '50s and '60s from her 'Everlasting' album alive.

"We've worked hard to put together a show that is visually entertaining as well as very rich musically," she said. "There's so much for the audience to see and experience."

McBride sings R&B favorites including The Supremes' "Come See About Me," Van Morrison's "Wild Night" and Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long."

"I feel like this show really takes the audience on a musical journey," said McBride. "The songs from 'Everlasting' and my hits blend seamlessly together throughout the night."

CD reviews for Martina McBride

It's the Holiday Season 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 »»»
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. »»»
