NEWS

After two decades in the music business, Martina McBride is starting over.  With new management, a new co-producer, newly spotlighted songwriting skills and the release of her 11th album, the singer has a brand new spirit of accomplishment swinging into high gear. The seven-time ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ will bring holiday favorites to Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk Nov. 24 and Roanoke Civic Center Nov. 25. All traditional holiday favorites will be sung by the biggest vocals in country music.

Tickets are on sale now for Norfolk and go on sale Sept. 28 for Roanoke.
