Martina McBride’s latest single, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” tells the story of a woman’s diagnosis of breast cancer and her husband’s promise to love her through it. The powerful song is having an impact on people everywhere, but then again, Martina has never been one to shy away from songs about social issues.
“I think I’m just naturally drawn to songs that offer hope, that sing about hope, and I learned a long time ago that songs I’ve recorded like “Independence Day” and “Broken Wing,” they really make a difference in somebody’s life,” Martina said.
Martina’s hope is that this song has the same impact as some of her other hits. “I feel like it’s gonna make a difference to somebody,” she said. It’s gonna lift somebody up. It’s gonna offer inspiration; offer hope. And really reach out and make someone feel like I’m telling their story or something they can relate to. Which I feel like is so much of what country music is about.”
Martina will have the honor of flipping the switch to turn the Grand Ole Opry pink during the Opry and Women Rock For The Cure’s annual Opry Goes Pink show on October 22 as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. She will release her new album, Eleven, on October 11.
