In 1995, the song “On My Own” united powerhouse singers Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood and Linda Davis.

And, let’s just say — it was spectacular!

In the video, which was part of a special called “Reba: Starting Over” that aired on CBS, it’s clear to see that the quartet completely supports one another. Heck, they’re even sporting matching colored outfits. Reba kills it on the first verse, while Martina and fellow country star Trisha dominate the second. And those harmonies are out of this world!

It’s that same girl power vibe onstage that finds it’s way on Martina’s latest album, “Reckless.” In fact, all of the album’s tunes were written by women.

“I feel like women have this particular point of view that, of course, I am going to relate to as a woman,” Martina tells “Today” show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, “so, it makes sense to me that all of the songs actually have women writers.”

Martina has always been one to embrace feminism, and her encouragement toward women shines through when she’s parenting three her three daughters, Emma, Delaney and Ava McBride. The “This One’s for the Girls” singer even splits parenting duties fifty-fifty with hubby, John McBride.

“John and I take turns. I like to take the morning shift, and he picks Ava up from school. So, I take Ava to school in the morning usually, and then come back and have my coffee and just relax,” said Martina.
