Martina McBride headlines Huntsville Classic concert

HUNTSVILLE — Multiple Grammy nominee Martina McBride will headline this year’s Huntsville Classic concert.

This year’s event is 7 p.m. May 20 at the Orion Amphitheater. The concerts have raised more than $8.1 million for pediatric specialties and the Canines for Coping program at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children.

A philanthropist, McBride was honored by Covenant House, an organization that assists and advocates for homeless youth, with its Beacon of Hope Award for her work with homeless and trafficked youth through her foundation Team Martina.

With sales of more than 23 million albums including 20 Top 10 singles and six No. 1 hits, she has been awarded 14 Gold Records that include nine Platinum honors, three Double Platinum Records, and two Triple Platinum Awards.

McBride has also been named Female Vocalist of the Year from the Country Music Association four times and she is a three-time winner as the Academy of Country Music for Top Female Vocalist.

And she has a culinary touch, as well. McBride has released two cookbooks: “Around the Table,” a full-color illustrated collection of her favorite recipes, hosting tips, practical menu planning advice, and themed décor inspiration; and “Martina’s Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life.”

In 2021, McBride unveiled her first exhibit, “The Power of Her Voice” in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Later that year, she released “Martina McBride – Greatest Hits: The RCA Years”, a double LP vinyl package, with a color variant exclusively at Walmart.

The Huntsville Hospital Foundation helps provide lifesaving technology and meaningful programs that improve patient lives.
