Martina McBride Biography
Contemporary country singer Martina McBride rose to stardom in
the late '90s, starting out with a more traditionalist approach and
later moving into pop-friendlier territory. She was born Martina Mariea
Schiff in Medicine Lodge, KS, in 1966 and discovered country music
through her father, who led a local band called the Schifters. By her
teen years, she was singing and playing keyboards with the Schifters,
and after high school she gigged around Kansas with several different
bands. She married soundman John McBride, and in 1990 the couple moved
to Nashville, where John worked for artists like Charlie Daniels and
Ricky Van Shelton; Martina, meanwhile, worked as a demo singer, and her
husband produced her demo tape, which got her signed to RCA in 1991.
Around the same time, John was hired as Garth Brooks' production
manager, which helped land Martina an opening slot on tour with Brooks.
Her debut album, The Time Has Come, was released in 1992, offering a
set of songs indebted to traditional honky tonk and progressive-minded
country-folk. The pop-inflected 1993 follow-up, The Way That I Am, was
her commercial breakthrough, with the lead single My Baby Loves Me
zooming up the country charts to the number two position. The affecting
story-song Independence Day became something of a signature number,
and another single, Life #9, also reached the Top Ten.
McBride's 1995 follow-up, Wild Angels, gave her a second Top Five hit
in Safe in the Arms of Love, and its title track became her
first-ever number one single. 1997's Evolution became her first Top Ten
country album, and the Jim Brickman duet Valentine not only went Top
Ten, but crossed over to become her first big hit on the adult
contemporary charts. Evolution went on to spawn two number two hits
( Happy Girl and Whatever You Say ) and two number one hits ( A
Broken Wing and Wrong Again ), and sold over two million copies,
launching McBride into the top rank of country stardom. She issued a
Christmas album in late 1998 and returned with a proper follow-up,
Emotion, in 1999. Its lead single, I Love You, hit number one country
and also crossed over to adult contemporary radio, and the follow-ups
Love's the Only House, There You Are, and It's My Time were all
successful as well (the first two also reached the Top Ten). 2001's
Greatest Hits compilation was the first McBride album to top the
country charts, and sold well enough to make the pop Top Five as well.
It contained four new tracks, all of which were eventually released as
singles; Blessed hit number one, and When God-Fearin' Women Get the
Blues and Where Would You Be both reached the Top Ten. Martina from
2003 celebrated womanhood, while Timeless from 2005 was a collection of
country classics; both became Top Ten album hits, the latter reaching
number three. Waking Up Laughing appeared in 2007 from RCA Records. ~
