Martina McBride is making her Love Unleashed Tour all about the ladies. The “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” singer joined forces with CMT to bring the Next Women of Country brand on the road.
Maggie Rose and the new country trio Post Monroe have been added to the bill, along with Lauren Alaina, who was first announced as a special guest. All the ladies are part of CMT’s Next Women of Country roster, which helps promote female singer/songwriters.
“I am so happy that we are adding a second run of dates to the Love Unleashed Tour. We have created an environment at the shows where fans can come together to share positive energy and a common love of music, and leave the concert feeling uplifted and stronger,” said Martina in a statement. “We all know the power of music and positivity and I truly believe that what the fans experience on this tour will have a huge ripple effect in their lives, their communities, and the world at large.”
Past alumi of the Next Women of Country group include Kelsea Ballerini, Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, Cassadee Pope and more.
The Love Unleashed Tour kicks off on Feb. 2 in St. Louis with stops in Chicago, Pittsburgh and Nashville. 2017 marks Martina’s 25th year on the road. Her current album, Reckless, released in April 2016, features the singles, “Just Around The Corner” and the title track.
