Martina Mariea McBride is an American country
music singer-songwriter and record producer. She is known for her soprano singing range and her country pop material.
McBride signed to RCA
Records in 1991, and made her debut the following year as a
neo-traditionalist country singer with the single, "The Time Has Come".
Over time, she developed a pop-styled crossover
sound, similar to that of Shania
Twain and Faith Hill
and has had a string of major hit singles on the Billboard country chart
and occasionally on the adult contemporary chart. Five of these singles went to
No. 1 on the country chart between 1995 and 2001, and one peaked at No. 1 on
the adult contemporary chart in 2003. She has been called the "Celine Dion of Country Music" when she was
recognized for her soprano singing range.
McBride has recorded a total of 13 studio albums, two greatest hits compilations, one
"live" album, as well as two additional compilation albums. Eight of
her studio albums and two of her compilations have received an RIAA Gold certification, or
higher. In the U.S., she has sold over 14 million albums. In addition, McBride
has won the Country Music Association's
"Female Vocalist of the Year" award four times (tied with Reba McEntire for the second-most wins) and
the Academy of Country Music's
"Top Female Vocalist" award three times.
She is also a 14-time Grammy
