Martina McBride Extends ‘Everlasting Tour’

Martina McBride

Martina McBride’s ‘Everlasting’ Tour has already seen the “petite powerhouse” (Rolling Stone Country) play sold-out shows across the country this year and will continue through the fall with 40 additional dates — seven of which have already sold-out.

Backed by an 11-piece band — including trumpet, tenor sax, bari sax and trombone and a trio of back-up singers — Martina’s live show brings the iconic sounds of the ’50s and ’60s from her ‘Everlasting’ album alive.

“We’ve worked hard to put together a show that is visually entertaining as well as very rich musically,” shares Martina. “There’s so much for the audience to see and experience.”

The four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year puts her own spin on some of her favorite R&B and soul classics including the Supremes’ “Come See About Me,” Van Morrison’s “Wild Night” and Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” but also performs fan favorites like “A Broken Wing,” “Love’s The Only House,” “This One’s For The Girls,” “Independence Day,” and “In My Daughter’s Eyes.”

“I feel like this show really takes the audience on a musical journey,” says McBride. “The songs from Everlasting and my hits blend seamlessly together throughout the night.”

Seven dates on the Fall leg have already sold-out, including Meridian, MS, Forrest City, AR, Lake Charles, LA, two dates in Nashville, Midland, TX and Dayton, OH.

Michael W. Smith Enlists the Help of Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum & MORE for Christmas Album!

michael w smith

Michael W. Smith partnered with Rolling Stone Country today to announce the September 30th release of Michael W. Smith & Friends: The Spirit of Christmas, featuring an all-star lineup of guests – Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Bono and Michael McDonald.

“This is the most unique and unusual record I’ve ever done in my 31-year career. The entire record was sequenced together before we recorded one song,” recalls Smith. “Sonically you’re hearing me in a way that you’ve probably never heard me before. At one point it’s like Smitty meets Bublé. There’s my granddaughter’s voice singing the song from ‘Home Alone,’ plus the whole orchestral and symphonic feeling of Christmas, mixed together with all these amazing voices and guests – yet it all fits together in a remarkable way.”

When we started talking about who could be on this record with him, the list got really narrow really fast,” remarked co-producer Robert Deaton. “There’s a difference between a singer and an artist, or a celebrity and an artist. While we were fortunate to have these amazing guests on the record, it all feels like a cohesive piece and you never leave the fact that it’s a Michael W. Smith record. That was important. That, along with working with co-producer David Hamilton, who is the resident genius, was amazing. This entire process has just been phenomenal.”

This fall, Smith will bring holiday cheer to audiences across the country as he launches “The Spirit of Christmas Tour.” Smith’s long-time friend and fellow GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant will co-bill with him in Dallas, Minneapolis and Atlanta. Tickets for many shows are on sale now. For a full list of tour dates, and ticket information, visit michaelwsmith.com/tour.

Country Music Reacts to Robin Williams’ Death

@BradPaisley  ·  Devastated right now. Loved you Robin

@charlieworsham  · Robin Williams felt like a crazy uncle to me.. like Andy Griffith, he was practically a part of the family. he blessed so many w laughter

@martinamcbride  · Like the rest of the world I am saddened by the passing of Robin Williams. He gave us so much laughter and brilliance that will live forever

@ChrisYoungMusic  ·  #RIPRobinWilliams

@ChaseRiceMusic  ·  Rest in peace @robinwilliams. Patch Adams and Mrs. Doubtfire will forever be two of my favorite movies.

 ·  I’m SO sad to hear of Robin Williams’ death. Praying for his family.

 ·  So sad to hear about . What an amazing talent.

 ·  Wow, I love Robin Williams, god bless that fella, he will be missed, BIG time!

 

The Recording Academy has issued the following statement.

Five-time GRAMMY® winner Robin Williams was a prolific actor and stand-up comedian who literally did it all: television, film, theater, and live performances. After gaining fame in his breakout role of Mork in the television show “Mork & Mindy,” Williams became a household name. His improvisational skills and comedic timing were unmatched, and he quickly established himself as a larger-than-life presence on screen and on stage. His roles in classic movies such as Mrs. Doubtfire, The Birdcage, and Jumanji showcased his comedic chops, while his versatility was reflected in dramatic films such as Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, and Good Will Hunting, which earned him an Academy Award® for Best Supporting Actor. Although Williams is most recognized for his film and television work, he has received GRAMMYs for Best Comedy Recording three times, Best Recording for Children, and Best Spoken Comedy Album. Additionally, his heart matched his expansive talent, as he often gave generously — both financially and personally — to a number of worthwhile causes throughout his life. Our entertainment community has lost an immense talent, a true inspiration, and a creative genius, and his remarkable legacy will forever be immortalized in his vast and impressive body of work. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends, and his countless fans around the world who will continue to honor his memory through laughter.
