This concert premieres on PBS October 13, 2005 (check local listings)

Martina McBride strikes the right balance between traditional country sentiments and adult contemporary-tinged pop, having gained popularity in both territories with high-charting singles. The Kansas-bred singer began performing in her early teens, singing and playing keyboard for her father’s band, The Shifters. But her career took flight shortly after moving to Nashville in 1990. Two years later, her husband John McBride produced Martina’s debut, The Time Has Come, which married honky tonk and progressive country folk. Since her first album, Martina has released six very popular albums, including a greatest hits release that topped the country charts. She has sold more than 15 million records, produced a slew of Top 10 singles, and won numerous awards throughout her successful career.

Martina’s Soundstage performance was taped during her sold out show at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, IL. Performing fan-favorite songs like her first number one hit, 1995’s “Wild Angels,” and 1993’s “Independence Day” from The Way I Am, this special appearance also includes previews of songs from her forthcoming album Timeless, due out October 18th.
