Martina McBride has just released her ninth album, “Waking Up Laughing”, which she also produced. “Anyway”, the debut single, currently sits at No. 9 after only 8 weeks on the country charts, making it her fastest-rising single ever and marks her first songwriting credit. She is also a co-writer of two additional songs on the project. “As exciting as it is to create a new album, there's nothing quite as thrilling as getting the immediate feedback from a live crowd,” says Martina. “I'm especially happy about being joined by Little Big Town. We put a lot of thought into which artists to include on this tour and I really feel like this show is going to be a treat for my fans from beginning to end. I can't wait to get out there on the road!”
A four-time CMA vocalist of the year, McBride has earned more than 16 million in album sales, garnering six number ones and 21 top-10 singles. Her fiery, passionate vocals have created such signature hits as “Independence Day,” “Wild Angels,” “A Broken Wing,” “Blessed” and “This One’s for the Girls.” These songs, along with hits such as “Concrete Angel,” “Love’s the Only House” and “God’s Will,” have not only become memorable musical statements but also offer resounding social commentaries.
Little Big Town is one of the biggest success stories of the past year. It all began with the release of their CD The Road To Here, the band’s near-platinum debut for the Equity Music Group label. The CD’s release opened the floodgates of critical acclaim, commercial success and award nominations, culminating at the /files/storyimages/of 2006 with two major nods: the band’s first Grammy nominations (two) and Billboard Magazine naming the group “The Independent Artist of 2006,” and its album “The Independent Album of 2006,” topping the list of artists and albums in all genres. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to share the stage every evening with Martina McBride,” says Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild. “She is one of the best singers on the planet, and when it comes to performing, she sets the standard. We are honored that she invited us to be a part of this tour.”
