The newly opened Verizon Event Center in Mankato, MN is not wasting any time getting shows. Another such show is Martina McBride playing on Friday, September 9th, 2016. With all the good acts booked within only the first week of opening, I’m excited to see what else will be coming to town!
Martina first made the country charts in 1992. Her hit records since then have included such enduring classics as “Wild Angels,” “Safe in the Arms of Love,” “Wrong Again,” “Blessed,” “My Baby Loves Me,” “Life #9,” “Love’s the Only House,” “Whatever You Say,” “Where Would You Be,” “In My Daughter’s Eyes,” “When God Fearin’ Women Get the Blues” and “A Broken Wing.”
To date, she has had 20 top-10 hits and six No. 1 smashes. As a result, Martina McBride is ranked as the most played woman vocalist on country radio between 1999 and 2010. She was honored with induction into the cast of the Grand Ole Opry in 1995.
Martina McBride has been awarded 14 Gold Records, nine Platinum honors, three Double Platinum Records and two Triple Platinum awards and been recognized for selling over 18 million units. The Country Music Association has named her its Female Vocalist of the Year four times. The Academy of Country Music has presented her with its Top Female honor three times. The Recording Academy has nominated her for 14 Grammy Awards. Her most recent album, Reckless, was released in April of 2016 to critical acclaim.
