McBride’s big break came when her friend Garth Brooks gave her an opening slot on his 1990 concert tour. From there, McBride became one of the most successful country stars of the 1990s and 2000s.

More than 18 million McBride albums have been sold, thanks to her 20 top-10 singles and six No. 1 hits. Among them are “Concrete Angel,” “A Broken Wing,” “This One’s for the Girls,” “My Valentine” and “Independence Day.”

McBride is a four-time Country Music Association female vocalist of the year and three-time Academy of Country Music female vocalist of the year.

In 2014, she released her first book, “Around the Table,” a full-color illustrated collection of her favorite recipes, hosting tips, practical menu planning advice and themed décor inspiration. She released her second book, “Martina’s Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life,” in October 2018.
