It's all about the numerology. Like Beyoncé named her fourth solo album 4, platinum-selling recording artist Martina McBride will release her eleventh album, which boasts 11 tracks, on Oct. 11.
The album will feature some of Martina's most personal songs to date, with the powerhouse vocalist penning six of the 11 tracks.
As one of the most spectacular voices in any genre of music, Martina McBride is a four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, three-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year and GRAMMY® winning recording artist with more than 18 million in album sales. According to data from both Nielsen-BDS and Mediabase, Martina McBride is also Country radio's "most-played female artist" of the past 11 years (1999-2010). 11 is clearly MMcB's lucky number, isn't it?
Even with all of the aforementioned accolades, Eleven will be a first for Martina in many ways. The impending album comes at a time of professional rebirth for Martina with new music, a new producer (Byron Gallimore), a new manager (Morris Artists Management) and a new record label (Republic Nashville). While dabbling with songwriting in the past, Martina's newfound passion is evident in these songs, giving fans a deeper look into her reality. With this venture, she is embarking on an exciting time in an already successful career, which has produced 24 Top 10 singles, including six that hit #1.
The album reveals a very real side of Martina's personality and feels like an honest conversation with her fans. "This is such an amazing time in my life and my career," says McBride. "I feel like I've been given the support and power to go into the studio and write and create an album that pushes the boundaries of what people expect of me, while still being true to myself. I can't wait for October 11th so that I can finally share this new music with my fans!" Neither can we, Martina!
