Martina McBride will join the concert line-up for the 2017 Elkhart County 4-H Fair, taking the grandstand stage Tuesday, July 25.

McBride, a multiple-Grammy nominated artist, has sold more than 18 million albums to date, scoring 20 top-10 singles and six number-one hits.

Her most recent album, “Reckless,” launched last year with the release of the title track.

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’s achieved 14 gold records, nine platinum, three double-platinum and two triple-platinum records. 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.

Through her Team Music Is Love charity initiative, McBride partners with nonprofit causes to help many of the towns in which she performs.

Since 2011, Team Music Is Love has been responsible for many successful fundraising and volunteer projects helping causes such as hunger relief, cancer research, combating domestic violence and helping children in need. For more information, visit
