Martina Mc Bride Discography
Martina McBride is an American country music singer. Her discography consists of ten studio albums, one live album, three compilation albums and 51 singles.
Spending about seven years in Nashville, following arranging a demo tape, McBride was signed to RCA Nashville Records in 1991. The following year she released her first single "The Time Has Come" (a Top 25 country hit) and her debut album shortly after, also titled The Time Has Come. For about four to five years, McBride had a series of Top 10 hits and was marketed as a Neo-Traditionalist country artist with such hits as "Independence Day," "Safe in the Arms of Love," and "Wild Angels" (her first #1). Her next two albums following her debut, The Way That I Am and Wild Angels were each certified Platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America.
In 1997, McBride released her breakthrough album, Evolution. The album spawned five Top 10 hits, including two #1s, "A Broken Wing" and "Wrong Again." The new album put McBride in a more comfortable country-pop format, which set the trend for her next two releases, Emotion (1999) and Greatest Hits (2001). She had further major hits including "I Love You" (which spent 5 weeks at #1), "Blessed", and "Concrete Angel." In 2003, she released her sixth album, Martina which featured the singles "This One's for the Girls" and "In My Daughter's Eyes." Both songs were Top 5 country hits, as well as mainstream hits on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. Two years later McBride released her first album of cover versions entitled Timeless. In 2007, McBride reverted to contemporary country with her eighth studio album, Waking Up Laughing, which brought about her first Top 10 hit since 2003, "Anyway." McBride's final album for RCA Nashville, Shine, was released in March 2009. Her latest album, Eleven, was released in October 2011.
Since her debut, McBride has had nearly all of her albums certified by the RIAA. She has 5 Platinum albums, 2 multi-Platinum albums, and one Gold album, which means she has sold over 14 million albums in the U.S.
Famous quotes containing the word bride:
“Literature transforms and intensifies ordinary language, deviates systematically from everyday speech. If you approach me at a bus stop and murmur Thou still unravished bride of quietness, then I am instantly aware that I am in the presence of the literary.”
—Terry Eagleton (b. 1943)
