“I never really thought, ‘Will this be a hit? Will this be a single’ I just recorded it because I wanted it to be part of my body of work. I take pride that I stood up for what I believe in, that I didn’t necessarily play it safe.” — Martina McBride about the song “Independence Day”

About Martina McBride
Martina Mariea McBride, an American country music singer-songwriter and record producer, was born on July 29, 1966. Her estimated net worth is $40 million. Martina McBride is renowned for her country pop songs and stunning soprano vocal range. She has an elder brother named Steve, a younger sister named Gina, and a younger brother named Marty who plays in her band. McBride is the second of four children. The tune “The Time Has Come” marked her debut as a neo-traditionalist country singer.
The “The Schiffters,” a musically inclined family, began performing at South-Central Kansas dances under the name of Martina’s family. After graduating from high school, she went to college for one semester before leaving to join another group of close friends who play rock music full-time. Martina wed John McBride in 1988, and the two of them settled in Nashville in 1990. Martina and John both received employment with Garth Brooks.
Martina put a biography, some pictures, two sample recordings, and the words “Requested Material,” on the exterior of a large purple package and submitted it to RCA with the intention of getting a record deal. Three weeks later, she received a call asking her to come in for an interview. This resulted in the label requesting her to participate in a showcase to show off her live performance skills, which ultimately led to her signing with RCA.
The Time Has Come, Martina’s debut album, was released in 1992, although none of its three singles were particularly successful for the artist. However, she achieved her first Top 5 song with “My Baby Loves Me,” which peaked at No. 2 with her follow-up album The Way That I Am in 1993. The song “Independence Day.” which wasn’t a No. 1 for her but is still what most people think of when they think of her, was also on the album. She won the 1994 CMA Video of the Year award for the song’s music video.
Number One Achievement
With the title track from her third album, Wild Angels, she eventually achieved her first No.
With the help of Jim Brickman, Martina had some crossover success in 1997 with the release of her subsequent album, Evolution. She also added “A Broken Wing,” and “Wrong Again.” which both reached No. 1.
When Martina’s album Emotion was released in 1999, “I Love You.” became another No. 1 song for her. Martina received the CMA Female Vocalist of the Year honor for the first time in 1999. She has received it four times in total.
Returning to Her Roots
Martina made a risky move in 2005 by releasing an album of classic country tunes, Timeless, following her success with the country pop genre. The song, “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden,” garnered a lot of attention and peaked at No. 18 despite the album’s No. 1 debut and widespread critical acclaim.
Martina Right Now
Waking Up Laughing by Martina was published in 2007. She co-wrote songs for the first time on this album, which was released. She embarked on the Waking Up Laughing Tour in 2007, with Rodney Atkins and Little Big Town serving as the opening acts. She will continue the tour through the summer of 2008, with Jack Ingram, Chris Young, and Jason Michael Carroll serving as the opening acts.
Martina will release Martina McBride: Live in Concert, a CD/DVD Set, in the spring of 2008.
In 2016, McBride issued a brand-new song titled “Reckless” via Nash Icon Records. A brand-new tour dubbed “Love Unleashed” was also announced by her. Along with being chosen as one of the 30 performers for “Forever Country”
In 2019, McBride launched the topical conversation series Vocal Point, a “free-wheeling, wide-ranging” podcast. Martina McBride’s net worth is projected to reach $40 million as of 2023. With the song “Girls Like Me” McBride appeared in an episode of NBC’s Songland from the second season in 2020.
