Martina McBride has changed the release date for her upcoming covers record, ‘Everlasting.’

The album was originally set to be released on March 4, but has been changed to April 8 to make room for performance opportunities. The singer made the announcement on her Facebook page.

 

‘Everlasting’ features McBride’s take on 14 classic songs from artists including Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin and Etta James. The country superstar says that she tried to put a unique spin on each song, rather than simply copying the original.

“It’s an instinct thing,” she tells Nashville’s Tennessean. “You don’t want to make a karaoke record. You don’t want it to sound exactly like the original and then you don’t also want to make it so different that it’s unrecognizable because these songs are sacred to a lot of people.”

McBride will be appearing as the opening act for select dates on George Strait‘s farewell the Cowboy Rides Away Tour, as well as performing several of her own shows to support the new album. See all of her upcoming shows here.
