Martina McBride savors the opportunity to show her funky R&B side as she releases her new album, Everlasting, on which she covers some of the most popular soul standards of all time. Martina shares that an album of this nature can get a little tricky in the April 14 Country Weekly cover story.
“You do need to have a reverence for the originals,” she says. “But you also have to make the songs your own.” On the album, Martina performs stirring versions of “Suspicious Minds,” “Come See About Me” and other longtime favorites of hers.
“I’ve always enjoyed singing all kinds of music,” she says, “and I hope that comes through with this album.”
