Martina McBride’s “Everlasting Tour” is really living up to its name. She’s just announced more than a half dozen gigs from February to October.
Of course, the trek actually takes its name from the country singer’s latest album, Everlasting. The 2014 LP is made up of covers of soul and R&B songs like “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and “To Know Him Is To Love Him.”
“The band and I are having so much fun on this EVERLASTING TOUR!” McBride says. “I really wanted to put together a show that is as visually entertaining as it is musically entertaining. The addition of the horn section and singers adds so much energy to what we do. We are enjoying the fresh take on our hits of the last 20 plus years as well as being able to play so much of the new album because it’s familiar music to my fans. I think we are all wishing this tour really would last forever!”
In other McBride news, she recently signed a new record deal with Nash Icon Records, a joint venture label between the Big Machine Label Group and Cumulus.
