Martina McBride turns 50 on July 29. The talented beauty stopped by the Taste of Country Nights studio and told us where she'll be on the big day, and why she's happy to be there.

McBride has had an impressive career through many years, but she certainly doesn't look her age. This year for her birthday she'll be at one of her shows, and she's actually looking forward to working on her big day.

“I’m actually doing a show on my birthday in Arizona. It’s fun, though," she admits. "I always like being on the road on my birthday because everybody always makes a big deal about it and I get to be with my friends, my band and crew."

Most of her band and crew have been with her for the long haul, so her birthdays on the road are extra special.

"We’ve all been together a really long time — 20 years some of them — so they’re like my second family. It’s fun to be able to share all that with them and to be able to do a show with them. I like it. I had a birthday off the road a couple years ago and it was just kind of bland.”

McBride most recently released her album, Reckless, which is available now on iTunes.

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
