MARTINA McBRIDE’s fifth album, ``Emotion,'' is named as honestly as she could. Martina says the lyrics are so ``honest and true'' that the title is perfect because it sums up what the album is about. She says using a very small band and giving everybody creative room to play from the heart gave them tracks that were too great to overdub.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Country singer Martina McBride sells out her own concerts now but vividly remembers her anxiety over being a relatively unknown opening act for Garth Brooks. She worried about being "some chick singer" that concertgoers would yell off the
stage. "The whole thing was a baptism by fire - sink or swim," McBride tells Country Weekly magazine in its July 27 issue. She swam, obviously, and credits the Brooks experience for bolstering her confidence.
"After that, there's not much concert-wise that can be any more difficult," said the Kansas-born singer of hits such as "Independence Day", "Wild Angels", and "A Broken
Wing". McBride, 32, moved to Nashville in 1989 with husband John McBride, who became a sound man for Brooks while she sold T-shirts for the superstar on the road. She later recorded "Cheap Whiskey", a duet with Brooks, and went on to score her first hit, "My Baby Loves Me".
