Martina McBride’s 10th studio album, Shine, is set for release next Tuesday, March 24 on RCA Records. Featuring the singer’s current hit single “Ride,” the album’s title stems from her personal philosophy.
“I love the word—I think it’s really positive and strong and powerful,” says McBride, “and that’s one of my favorite lyrics from the song ‘Ride’—’shine, while you have the chance to shine,’ because I feel like sometimes you go along, and you take things for granted. And all of a sudden, you’re reminded…you get one shot to do this. You get one shot to live this life, and you should shine while you have the chance to shine. You should go out there and be undeniable. And so, it’s inspirational to me…very inspirational.”
To support its release, McBride will embark on a media tour that includes back-to-back appearances on NBC’s Today, with an interview and performance airing Tuesday, March 23 and a second interview and performance airing Wednesday, March 25. McBride will also visit Live with Regis and Kelly on Wednesday, as well as taping future episodes of the Rachael Ray show (which airs the week of April 6) and A&E’s series Private Sessions (which airs Sunday, April 5).
Also planned are upcoming episodes of E!’s Chelsea Lately (taping April 1) and an interview and performance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show (which airs Thursday, April 2).
McBride can also be seen on the cover of the April 20 issue of First magazine, which is on stands right now.
