Martina McBride has made the circuits with concerts in large cities as well as small rural towns. She is an American country singer who has kept us entertained for several decades. She delivers a message of strength and encouragement for young girls who will grow into the women of tomorrow. She still draws big crowds wherever she performs, although she is no longer churning out number one hits on the charts. Here are the ten best Martina McBride songs of all time ranked from worst to best.
“Valentine” is an older song from 1997, that Martina performed as a duet with Jim Brickman. He and another songwriter co-wrote the tune that was well-received by audiences. It was so popular with Martina’s fans that it didn’t take long for the song to chart on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. There was something magical about the chemistry between the voices of she and Brickman, who did a bang-up job of delivering this romantic song. It was a big hit with audiences and it will remain one of the most memorable hit songs of her career. Although it was a bit one for McBride, we give it a number 10 because others were even more popular.
9. “Happy Girl”
“Happy Girl” is a song that makes us look back to the time when we were young and in love, (if you’re one of the older generations of fans). It’s not a powerful song about getting back on your feet or lining through a nightmare and bouncing back, but the simple theme is rather refreshing. It’s a song that can inspire nostalgia.
8. “Where Would You Be”
This song is about a relationship that is on the skids and destined to end. Although it’s not one of her best works, it’s well written. Some have criticized the song because it doesn’t offer any solutions, but isn’t that just like life? I love this song because of its realism. Sometimes there aren’t any great solutions to make you feel happy or give you closure. The song’s theme is country to the bone.
7. “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”
“I’m Gonna Love You Through It” is another big hit for Martina McBride. The song dropped in 2011 and elicited high emotions in women with a diagnosis of breast cancer. It’s an uplifting song that has the best possible outcome, but it talks about the things that women with a husband and kids go through after receiving such a diagnosis. This song has received over 10 million views on YouTube in the past decade and it’s one of her most powerful and uplifting songs that hits hard about real life.
6. “Do It Anyway”
Drageda offers insight into the true meaning behind the lyrics of this song. It’s based on a poem called “The Paradoxical Commandments, by Dr. Kent M. Keith. It’s about the hardships we endure in life and keeping the faith to make it through them. The song is highly inspirational and it also gives us a glimpse into the philosophies that Martina McBride has embraced to get her through some of the hard times in life. She delivers powerful messages in the content of her songs. This song is truly a gift that can help to encourage us when life isn’t going the way we would like. Sometimes you must get up and take action even when you don’t feel like it.
5. This One’s For The Girls”
Martina sings this powerful song for girls of all ages in their lives. She offers advice from the experiences she has had in her own life. After coming out on the other side, into maturity, she is aware of the things that women go through from little girls throughout their lifespans. We could all use a little bit of encouragement now and then. This song is yet another Martina McBride classic that is timeless and will be relevant until the end of time.
4. “In My Daughter’s Eyes”
This is a song that is easily one of her most popular hits. It was also followed up by a book written by Martina McBride. It’s a moving song about the relationship between a mother and daughter that so many of us can relate to. This is one of her most timeless songs that will never lose its power.
“Anyway” is a popular Martina McBride song that has received 7.9 million views on YouTube. It may have been overlooked upon its release but it’s finding popularity with her fans, which are still out there in droves. We gave it the number three position because the proof of its popularity is there for all to see.
2. “Wild Angels”
This song is about lovers who struggle to stay together at times, but they make it because of their wild angels who guide them. The song is about the miracles it can sometimes take to keep a couple together when there is so much on the outside that is stacked against them. It was one of her biggest hits and it’s still relevant today.
1. “Independence Day”
“Independence Day” generated its share of controversy, but it’s a song with a strong message for women who are living in dangerous and abusive situations. It tells the story bout how one woman found her way out of the relationship. McBride had a winner in this song as she went on to win a Grammy award and two CMA awards.
