Martina McBride Loves to Duet
Martina McBride has done lots of dueting throughout her career, even singing with Train frontman Pat Monahan while a wedding took place at the 2012 ACMs. Naturally, the songstress loves duets, and dishes who she thinks would be a fantastic partner.
McBride sat down with Larry King on his online show ‘Larry King Now,’ where she was asked via fan questions when she might do a duet with Carrie Underwood.
“There are no plans to do a duet with Carrie Underwood, but that would be fantastic!” she responded, seemingly delighted to be associated with the ‘American Idol‘ winner and fan-favorite country singer.
King probed a little further into McBride’s love for singing with partners. She explained that she loves both male and female duets, which will be aptly displayed on her upcoming cover album, ‘Everlasting,’ which possesses a broad range of tracks, with covers of many legendary, prestigious, well-loved songs.
“I have two duets on this album. We did a duet with Gavin DeGraw on an old Sam Cooke song called ‘Bring It on Home to Me,’ and I did a duet with Kelly Clarkson,” says McBride, furthering that her Clarkson pairing was an Etta James song ‘In the Basement. “It was really fun.”
While McBride’s voice is flawless when harmonizing or taking the lead, she believes that “the best duets are when you can trade lines or trade verses and then come together on the chorus.”
