After two decades in the music business, Martina McBride is starting over. Now signed to Republic Nashville, Martina is swinging into high gear. And she couldn’t be more thrilled.
The most significant aspect of Martina’s new album, Eleven, is the fact that Martina herself co-wrote six of the 11 tracks on the album. In the past, she admits she wasn’t always secure about her songwriting, but this album has brought her new-found confidence. “I love songwriters, and I’m not an artist who thinks I have to write everything I record.”
As for the superstar herself, she’s frankly exhilarated by the chance to experience what she calls first-time opportunities the second time around. In a career that’s already taken her to breathtaking heights (four CMA Female Vocalist of the Year trophies, three ACM Female Vocalist awards, a GRAMMY win, numerous national magazine covers and features, and appearances on such shows as VH1’s “Divas,” “TODAY Show,” “20/20,” “American Idol” and “Dancing with the Stars”), Martina is ready to take it up a notch with the help of her new label.
