Die-hard fans of country music sensation Martina McBride has been awaiting new music for her for a long time. The wait is over.
It was announced on December 12, on the official Country Music Television (CMT) website that the country songstress is doing to release a 14-track album of cover songs called Everlasting, via her own label, which will be out on March 4, 2014.
These classic songs will include Sam Cooke's "Bring It on Home to Me," which she recorded as a duet with singer Gavin DeGraw. In addition, other soul hits that will be featured include "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man," "If You Don't Know Me by Now" and "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted."
McBride also recorded classics by such musical acts as Elvis Presley, Van Morrison and The Supremes. Her album was recorded in Nashville in her very own, Blackbird Studios, and she worked with veteran Grammy-winning producer Don Was.
"These songs have beautiful melodies and emotional lyrics, which is basically all you can ask for as a singer," McBride told CMT. "While this is a bit of a departure for me song-wise, stylistically I approached these songs the way I always have, which is singing with as much soul and emotion as I possibly can.
The country queen added in that CMT interview, "I think my fans will love this record because they are some of the best songs of all time done in a very classic style. I'm so excited for them to hear it and to take this record, complete with a horn section, on the road in the spring."
This marks her second album of cover songs in her career. She recorded her Timeless CD back in 2005, where she covered classic country tunes such as "I Still Miss Someone," with Dolly Parton, as well as "Rose Garden" and "Heartaches By The Number."
McBride is currently out on the road touring, as part of her Joy of Christmas show.
