Eleven is aptly titled: it's Martina McBride's 11th album, contains 11 songs, and is her debut for Republic Nashville. McBride co-wrote over half the album and co-produced it with Byron Gallimore. Her husband, John McBride, engineered, mixed, and offered excellent creative advice. "I'm Gonna Love You Through It," the album's well-known single, deals with surviving the ordeal of breast cancer.
It’s perfectly clear from the title where this album falls in Martina McBride’s discography. But more than just driving home the not-at-all-small number of projects she has under her belt, this one arrives at a significant juncture in her career. Eleven is her first album since she parted ways with her longtime label and signed with a new one, and her first in the role of singer-songwriter.
