Martina McBride announced her Christmas tour, “The Joy of Christmas,” with a stop at Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall on December 19.

McBride is a multiple Grammy-nominated country music icon, whose vocals have kept her at the top of the charts, garnering six No. 1 hits and 20 Top-10 singles. Selling more than 18 million albums to date, McBride has earned 14 Gold, nine Platinum, three Double Platinum and two Triple Platinum certifications. 

Most recently, McBride released “It’s The Holiday Season,” a nine-song holiday album. For this album, McBride collaborated with the late Patrick “Pat” Williams, who arranged a set of classic Christmas songs with accompaniment from more than 35 world-class musicians at the famed Capitol Studio in Los Angeles and Blackbird Studio in Nashville. This release followed her 1998 multi-platinum “White Christmas.”

McBride has been honored with more than 15 major music awards, including four wins from the Country Music Association and three Academy of Country Music Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year.
