August Fan of the Month!

August 3, 2014 — 7 Comments

My name is Chad, andP1050150 I’m from Kiln, Mississippi (on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast).  I am a seventh grade teacher and am currently working on a degree in educational administration.  I am honored to be Martina’s Fan of the Month for August (my birthday month)!

I’ve been a Martina fan ever since I saw her perform the song “Whatever You Say” on the ACM Awards in 1999 (fifteen years ago)!  I saw Martina’s show in Montgomery in mid July, and I was so happy to hear her sing my favorite song live!  The Everlasting Tour is very different from other Martina tours, but it is truly amazing!  I love all the musicians with their instruments, “her girls” (she doesn’t like the term “background singers”), and the soulful feel of the show!  I’ve been fortunate to meet Martina a few times at her fantastic fan club parties and a couple concerts!  She’s always so gracious, and you can tell she truly cares about her fans!

Cape Cod Times Review: Martina McBride Belts Out Ballads and Blues

July 28, 2014 — 1 Comment

“It’s one thing to watch a performer who’s clearly talented and shines on stage. But when that performer is truly a superstar, it’s an experience unlike any other.

Martina McBride is a superstar, and the country singer proved that Saturday night when she took the stage at a sold-out Melody Tent as part of her “Everlasting” tour. Looking fierce in a sequined gold suit and sky-high heels, McBride, along with her impressive band — all dressed in matching blue suits — enthralled concertgoers with her 24-song set lasting just over two hours.”

July Fan of the Month

July 4, 2014 — 8 Comments

My name is Jenn, I’m from Sugar Land, TX., and I have been a Martina fan since I was 9 years old. I just graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Victim Studies. My favorite thing to do is sing, and I amjenn currently planning my move to Nashville in the fall to pursue my dream!

My favorite Martina song is Anyway – this song is my life anthem and lifts my spirits when I’m having doubts.  I became a member of Team Martina 2 years ago, and have had the pleasure of meeting Martina  a handful of times, but I will never forget the first time I met her. I couldn’t believe it was actually happening. She was right in front of me and I wanted to tell her how much she meant to me, but I completely froze, and might have cried a little. Instead of words, I just squeaked noises. Thankfully, I am now able to actually speak to her when I get the chance!

“I have a passion for food and entertaining so I’m excited to be putting everything I love into the pages of my new book,” says Martina. “And the response from fans to the cover on Twitter this morning was incredible. I can’t wait for everyone to see the full book.” 

Martina is currently on tour pursuing her better-known passion for music with a U.S tour that has seen the 11-piece band sell out dates in nearly every city. Complete “R&B-revue- style horns” (LA Times) – trumpet, tenor sax, bari sax and trombone – and a trio of back-up singers, Martina’s live show is bringing the iconic sounds of the 50s and 60s from her new
