It’s outrageous that of all 14 times that country singer-songwriter Martina McBride has been nominated for a Grammy, not one little gramophone has made it onto her mantle.

It’s been a minute since we’ve been graced with new music from the 55-year-old country star, but the good news is that on Thursday, we’re about to witness her second Tampa Bay area performance in six months. Right before Christmas, she took the Mahaffey Theater stage for her “Joy of Christmas” tour, as one does.

Only four months later, McBride is about to hit Tampa’s newish Hard Rock Event  Center for the first time. Tickets are sold-out, but we’re still gonna love her through it.
