Martina McBride Has a Lot to Learn About ‘Rock’
Despite being the consummate professional in her music career, Martina McBride does admit to a fault when it comes to music. It seems that she has not yet mastered the hit video game series Rock Band! While she doesn't have the game at home, Martina says there is one at Blackbird Studios, which she and her husband John own and where many of country's biggest stars record.
"I was not very good," Martina admits to The Boot of her first try at the game. "There was this drum set and there were drumsticks there in the studio, so what do you do? I decided to try it. I turned it on and tried to figure it out."
Perhaps the entertainer should have stayed with singing instead of trying to conquer the drums on her first attempt. Her hit song 'This One's For The Girls' is actually featured on the Rock Band Country Track Pack game experience. This is the first Rock Band game that focuses exclusively on country music.
Martina's song is one of 13 songs on the 21-track disc that will become downloadable content after being available on the disc for a limited time. Country artists and songs featured on the game, which became available the end of July, include Alan Jackson's 'Good Time,' Brad Paisley's 'Mud on the Tires,' Jason Aldean's 'She's Country,' Kenny Rogers' 'The Gambler' and Dierks Bentley's 'Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go).'
Fans can also enjoy trying to conquer Miranda Lambert's 'Gunpowder and Lead,' Kenny Chesney's 'She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy,' Willie Nelson's 'On The Road Again' and Keith Urban's 'I Told You So.' The game is available as standalone pack for the Xbox 360, the PS3, PS2 and the Wii.
