Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits album released by American country music singer Martina McBride. In addition to chronicling the greatest hits of her career at the time, it includes the album cut "Strangers" (from 1993's The Way That I Am) and four new songs, all of which were released as singles. The compilation reached number 1 on Top Country Albums and received a triple-platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Content[edit]

McBride's greatest hits are presented in chronological order on the album, starting with "My Baby Loves Me" from 1992 and ending with "There You Are" from 2000. Besides these tracks, the disc includes "Strangers", an album cut from 1993's The Way That I Am which McBride included because it had been popular among fans despite not being released as a single. In the liner notes, McBride and producer Paul Worley include commentary on each song.[1]

Four songs are new to the album: "When God-Fearin' Women Get the Blues", "Blessed", "Where Would You Be" and "Concrete Angel". All of these were released as singles, with "Blessed" reaching number 1 on the Hot Country Songs charts and the other three all reaching top 10.
