Martina McBride recently shared a sweet photo of her alongside her oldest daughter, Delaney, in Austin, Texas.
The two are standing in front of a building that has “I love you so much” written on it in cursive, red handwriting.
She captioned her throwback picture, “This popped up on my memories today. It’s a great one with my girl Delaney.”
In 1988, country artist Martina McBride married sound engineer John McBride. The two had three children together — Delaney, Emma, and Ava. After she became a mother, McBride readjusted her career. She reduced her busy tour schedule so she could be home more. She wanted her daughters to have a more normal and less chaotic childhood.
Delaney was born on December 22, 1994. She is now working as a massage therapist.
McBride certainly felt that sadness when her children started to get older and leave the house. They instead started to pursue their own dreams. A few years ago her middle child, Emma, moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. She penned a sweet Instagram post wishing her luck.
“There were a lot of tears in our family today. Emma moved to LA to embark upon her acting career. It didn’t hit me until after I got back home from the airport that she isn’t just going on a visit … but moving out of our house … maybe for good … Of course she knows she can always come back. But in a way … a very bittersweet way … I almost hope she doesn’t,” McBride wrote.
Emma now appears to be living in New York where she is still working in the entertainment business.
Martina McBride Back on Stage
Martina McBride has recently revealed her plan to really get back in the studio and on the stage again.
The country artist has not released an album in five years. Her last was “Reckless” in 2016.
She was the presenter for Single of the Year at the ACM Awards this year. She also announced in a press conference what she’s looking forward to and expecting in 2021.
“Hopefully, I’m gonna get back on the road. I think starting in July through the end of the year, and we are so excited. It’s been too long, and I miss it so much, so I’m ready to get out and see all the fans and just sing together,” McBride said, according to CMT.
She has revealed she’s been in the studio working on music during quarantine. She’s expecting an all-around busy 2021.
McBride’s most recent tour was in 2016 and it was called “Love Unleashed.” She described her tour to The Boot in 2016. She said, “What I want to create with this tour is for people to be able to come to the show and have a shared common experience together … and just kind of leave the world outside for a couple of hours and forget about all that stuff and just get back to enjoying being with each other.”
