Congratulations Dave!

My name is Dave and I live in Devore, California.  I’ve been a big Martina fan since the early 90′s.  I’m married with 2 boys and enjoy doing anything with my family – going to concerts, camping etc.  My favorite Martina song is “Ride” – I like the energy in it. I also love “Anyway” – our home burned down in a California wildfire, and the words got me through rough times after we lost it.  Our home is rebuilt now.  I’ve had the chance to meet Martina 3 times, I got choked up all 3 times and could hardly talk!  If I get a chance again, im going to talk choked up or not!  I think Martina is an awesome singer and a great role model.  Her songs are all so inspiring.  Of all the country singers, Martina’s songs are the ones I can listen to over and over and over!  I have to say Tracy makes the Martina Fan Club great!  I feel like we’re one big family!  I hope Martina and everyone had a great Christmas…I’m very proud to be Martina’s biggest fan!!!!!  Martina IS the best country singer of ALL time!!!

Congratulations Kim!

My name is Kim, but most of you know me as Curlygirl!  I am SO excited to be December’s Fan of the Month!  Not only is it an awesome Christmas surprise, but my birthday is this month, too!  What a great gift!  I live in the PIttsburgh area with my husband and two little girls, who happen to love singing Martina songs, too!    I’ve always loved listening to music, but I have to say, that I never really listened to music until Martina’s songs started playing on my radio.  Her songs have opened my eyes to how lyrics can truly move a person.  A few of my all-time favorites are “Anyway,” “Concrete Angel,” and “In My Daughter’s Eyes.”  They all have made me cry!  I think Martina is THE BEST artist in the music industry today, but is overlooked too often.  So, as a proud member of Team McBride, I get to help spread the word to the world about Martina and her amazing, God-given voice!  I have been insanely lucky enough to have met Martina, and she is even more gorgeous in person!  I am praying really hard that I can attend the fanclub party next year (if there is one), so I can meet a lot of my new Martina friends, too!  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!!!!

Shows Added!
