NASHVILLE, TN (April 28, 2016) – Multiple Grammy© nominee Martina McBride has sold over 18 million albums to date, charting 20 Top 10 singles and six #1 hits. Her forthcoming thirteenth studio album RECKLESS is due out this Friday, April 29 and marks her first on Nash Icon Records. The title track serves as Martina’s first single from the innovative imprint under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella. Music critics are already raving about her undeniable talents on the new project with PEOPLE Magazine highlighting RECKLESS as their “People Pick” of the week: “…the work of a singer whose connection to a song is so emotionally direct and uncluttered there’s no doubting her.” The outlet goes on to say that it is “a deeply satisfying new album.”
USA TODAY featured RECKLESS in print on April 27, exclusively previewing a track called “It Ain’t Pretty” online: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2016/04/26/restless-martina-mcbride-returns-country-roots/83520820/.
