The breathtaking soprano of Martina McBride is one of the greatest vocal instruments in contemporary popular music. That she applies it to songs of uncommon integrity makes its impact all the more thrilling. The proof is presented on her landmark Greatest Hits collection. This super-sized serving of music offers 13 of the performances that have made her one of the most cherished artists in country music, revives one of her favorite prior album tracks and offers four new recordings that place her at the forefront of the style in the new millennium. "I'd like to be known as someone who records songs that are intelligent and emotional," says Martina. "I don't want to be thought of as 'fluff.' Night after night, you have to be able to stand up there and believe in what you're singing. And I'm really lucky--I still love everything that I have done. I think I have chosen well." Indeed. With a catalog that includes such chart-topping singles as "Wild Angels," "Wrong Again," "A Broken Wing" and "I Love You," Martina McBride has surely 'chosen well'.

Muze PNote Cynics might suggest that pop-country star Martina McBride's greatest assets are here pearly whites and piercing blue eyes. Those who've followed the trajectory of McBride's career (a decade and six albums at the time of this compilation's release) know that the real reasons for her success are a set of super-strong pipes and a knack for picking material from some of Nashville's most hit-bound songwriters. One of those writers, Gretchen Peters, provided McBride with a signature song early on, in the form of "Independence Day," a bold narrative that deals unflinchingly with spousal abuse.
Muze PNote To her credit, McBride didn't try to repeat that song's success by becoming Nashville's poster girl for social causes. The rest of the songs on GREATEST HITS cover a variety of topics, but mostly center around the timeless biggies like celebration of love ("My Baby Loves Me"), glory of God (the previously unreleased "Blessed"), and surviving doomed relationships ("Broken Wing"). With its all-encompassing coverage of McBride's career highlights and its bevy of never-before-heard songs, GREATEST HITS is the definitive introduction to McBride's career.

Engineer: Clarke Schleicher; Mike Poole

Artist Overview

With her incredible vocal prowess and talent for choosing meaningful songs, Martina McBride became one of the top female country stars of the mid-'90s. After Garth Brooks hired the still-unknown McBride as his opening act, the beautiful singer got lots of attention, but her first commercial success came with her second album, THE WAY THAT I AM. Critical success followed soon after. McBride became the go-to gal for songs of female empowerment. In the late '90s, she crossed over to the pop charts, first by collaborating with Jim Brickman and Bob Seger, and then on her own.
