Martina McBride - Greatest Hits
Greatest Hits collections are usually the most popular releases from an artist. A dozen of the artist's most popular hits can't go wrong. Add to that the fact that most artists also add a few new songs to the mix, and the album is sure to go gold quickly.
The first of the four new songs is also the first single, "When God Fearin' Women Get The Blues." The song tells the story of a woman that's just had it with her cheatin' husband. The second song, "Where Would You Be," is a ballad with a sad story of failing romance. The chorus is filled with Martina's soaring vocals that speak of pain of not knowing how the other person feels and if they want you anymore. The third song is another sad one about child abuse. The title is "Concrete Angel." It tells the story of a little girl who is abused, but no one helps her. They turn away, and in the end it's too late. The last of the new songs is "Blessed." It talks about how she feels she is blessed in her life, and it's also the second single from the album.
This is a great collection of Martina's best, along with four new ones. A "must" for all Martina fans, and something for those who want a sample of great country music from one of country music's most awesome voices.
