McBride has earned more than 15 major music awards, including four wins for Female Vocalist of the Year from the Country Music Association and three wins from the Academy of Country Music for Top Female Vocalist.

“Over the past several seasons, the Norton Center has brought some powerful country legends, who also happen to be female,” said Norton Center Executive Director Steve Hoffman. “Martina McBride will now join the elite club that also includes past performances by Dolly Parton, Wynonna, Lee Anne Womack, Amy Grant, and Alison Krauss.”

McBride was awarded the Covenant House Beacon of Hope Award and Music Business Association’s prestigious 2015 Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award for her philanthropic efforts on behalf of domestic violence.
