Martina McBride took to social media to wish her middle daughter Emma a happy 22nd birthday and shared some sweet photos of her.

Martina McBride is an award-winning country music singer-songwriter, known best for her incredible soprano singing range and a variety of hits, such as “A Broken Wing” and “Independence Day.”

Martina’s love for music started with her father’s local band. Martina eventually joined his band playing keyboard and singing with other members of her family at local gigs around her hometown.

Martina met her husband, John McBride, who was a sound engineer in 1987 and was engaged shortly after and married in 1988. The two moved to Nashville together in 1990 to pursue country music careers.

John got a job as a sound engineer for Garth Brooks’ sound crew and Martina picked up odd jobs, including selling Garth Brooks merchandise at his concerts. Eventually, Garth took notice of Martina’s incredible talent and offered her to be an opener for his tour, if she could get signed with a record label.

With a demo cut by her husband, Martina was offered a deal with RCA Records in 1991 and started touring with Garth. Her debut album, The Time Has Come was released in 1992.

Martina and John had three daughters. Their oldest daughter, Delaney Katharine, was born on December 22, 1994, their middle daughter, Emma Justine, was born March 29, 1998, and their youngest daughter, Ava Rose Kathleen, was born June 20, 2005.

After their daughters were born, Martina decided to take a step back from touring so she could be at home with their girls and they could grow up having a relatively normal childhood.
