PRINCETON — Country music icon Martina McBride will be this year's concert headliner at the Bureau County Fair.
McBride will perform Thursday, Aug. 27, on the fair's grandstand stage.
Throughout her music career, McBride has been nominated for multiple Grammy awards. Her incomparable vocals have kept her at the top of the charts garnering six No. 1 hits and 20 top 10 singles.
Selling more than 18 million albums to date, McBride has earned 14 gold, nine platinum, three double platinum and two triple platinum certifications.
In 2017, McBride marked a milestone in her illustrious career when she hit her 25th year of touring. Last year, she released a new Christmas album, "It’s The Holiday Season," that features her favorite Christmas standards, all with the backing of a symphony, and also brought back her “The Joy of Christmas Tour,” this time each with a local orchestra.
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 Academy of Country Music awards for Top Female Vocalist.
She 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.
Off the stage, McBride has released two books. The first, "Around the Table," a full-color illustrated collection of her favorite recipes, hosting tips, practical menu planning advice and themed décor inspiration; and her second book, "Martina’s Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life," in October 2018.
