McBride becomes an Icon

Tuesday, December 23, 2014 – Martina McBride has a new home.

McBride announced today she has a deal with NashIcon, the label that is also home to Reba McEntire and Ronnie Dunn.

"So...yes it's true! I'm signed to Nash Icon and could not BE more excited! Making new music in 2015! More details to come," McBride tweeted.

After spending her entire career on RCA, McBride released "Eleven" on Republic Nashville in 2011 and "Everlasting" on her own label in March.

Signing with Nash Icon is a coming home of sorts. Republic Nashville is affiliated with Big Machine, which is a partner in Nash Icon with Cumulus Media.
