One of country music’s best vocalists of all-time will be releasing an album of classics on March 4, 2014!
Martina McBride’s new album Everlasting will feature iconic songs. Tracks will include “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” made famous by Aretha Franklin, “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and the Jimmy Ruffin hit “What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted.”
The four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year shared:
“These songs have beautiful melodies and emotional lyrics, which is basically all you can ask for as a singer. While this is a bit of a departure for me song-wise, stylistically I approached these songs the way I always have which is singing with as much soul and emotion as I possibly can.” “I think my fans will love this record because they are some of the best songs of all time done in a very classic style. I’m so excited for them to hear it and to take this record, complete with a horn section, on the road in the spring.”
We can’t wait to hear this!
The album will also feature a collaboration with Gavin DeGraw on “Bring It On Home,” originally sung by Sam Cooke.
Produced by Grammy winning producer Don Was, Everlasting will be released on McBride’s own label through Kobalt label services. The full track listing will be revealed soon and we’ll keep you posted.
