Martina McBride to Play Van Wezel, 10/16
One of the top selling female country artists of all time, Martina McBride will perform at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on October 16, 2014 at 8pm.
Tickets go on sale to the public on August 15 at 10am. Her new album, Everlasting made history as the first independently distributed female album to debut at #1 on the Top Country Albums Chart. This is Martina's fifth album to reach the #1 spot on the chart. Additionally, the album debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 and was her sixth album to appear in the top ten.
Everlasting features powerful interpretations of iconic soul songs and pays tribute to the original 1950s and 60s recording process by utilizing vintage microphones, instruments, amps and recording equipment. In support of the new album, the live tour will feature many of the classic songs from the album as well as Martina McBride favorites reimagined with a similar Motown vibe. Touting over 15 major music industry awards, Martina has clearly earned her title as the "Celine Dion of country music," and with this new album and tour it looks like she will also become the Linda Ronstadt and Etta James of country music as well.
