Multiple Grammy nominee Martina McBride has sold over 18 million albums to date, charting 20 Top 10 singles and six #1 hits. Her forthcoming thirteenth studio album RECKLESS is due out this Friday, April 29th and marks her first on Nash Icon Records. The title track serves as Martina’s first single from the innovative imprint under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella. Music critics are already raving about her undeniable talents on the new project with PEOPLE Magazine highlighting RECKLESS as their “People Pick” of the week: “…the work of a singer whose connection to a song is so emotionally direct and uncluttered there’s no doubting her.” The outlet goes on to say that it is “a deeply satisfying new album.”

Martina was in Los Angeles last week to honor Linda Ronstadt during the “GRAMMY Salute to Music Legends” tribute, slated to air on PBS later this year. The powerhouse vocalist also stopped by ACCESS HOLLYWOOD LIVE to chat with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover about her new music.

Her one-on-one interview with CBS’ THE INSIDER and catch up session with EXTRA host Charissa Thompson both aired last night.  The Superstar is also slated to perform on the American Country Countdown Awards live broadcast from Los Angeles May 1 on FOX.

Martina’s career boasts high-mark sales with 14 Gold records, Nine Platinum honors, three Double Platinum Records, and two Triple Platinum awards. Martina has earned more than 15 major music awards, including four wins from the Country Music Association and three titles from the Academy of Country Music for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Martina McBride Performs Intimate Concert Live on HSN

Martina McBride

In the first event of its kind, Martina McBride performed live on the cable television channel HSN Sunday night to promote her new CD Reckless. HSN viewers were treated to a live performance, an opportunity to have their questions answered on-air by McBride, and a special purchase offer that included a bonus CD with 5 additional songs.

Lucky fans who attended the intimate event in person were able to get up-close-and-personal with the country music icon, taking selfies and chatting with her between songs.

This event was the first in a new partnership between Big Machine Label Group and HSN. Both Scott Borchetta (CEO, Big Machine) and Mindy Grossman (CEO, HSN) were on hand to chat about how the Big Machine Rocks series came about and what’s in store for the future.

Borchetta and Grossman met while both serving on the Barclays Center advisory board and Grossman invited Borchetta to visit the HSN headquarters in Florida to discuss how they could potentially work together. The concept for the Big Machine Rocks series was created in February and both teams were able to bring it to fruition within 2 months.

“My goal is for HSN to be one of our biggest physical partners for years to come,” said Big Machine’s Borchetta, commenting on the dwindling shelf space for music. “They know our consumer better than we do. They know where they are.”

HSN is focused on “storytelling that creates meaning and meaning in people’s lives,” said Grossman. She also shared that HSN sees an opportunity beyond music, to create lifestyle products.

“The whole culture of this lifestyle is so powerful and can conjure up a lot of product creation. We see it going beyond even music and into the entire lifestyle.”

The second installment of the HSN / Big Machine Rocks series will feature Jennifer Nettles on Tuesday, April 26.
