Teenage Daughters & I'm Gonna Love You Through It:
"Teenage Daughters," Martina's debut single for Republic Nashville, was released the week after Country Radio Seminar, and fans immediately recognized Martina's personal stamp in the lyrics. The viewpoint clearly echoes the highs and lows of being a mom with unpredictable teenage daughters and struck a deep chord with fans of all ages. Her follow-up single, "I'm Gonna Love You Through It," wasn't penned by the singer but touched Martina personally the very first time she heard it.
"It's such a powerful song. The first time I listened to `I'm Gonna Love You Through It,' I was moved by what it says," Martina explains. "I thought immediately, `This song is going to help someone.' I had the same reaction to it that I did the when I heard `Independence Day' for the first time. Even though I haven't gone through anything like this with someone close to me, I still feel like people listening to this song will find some hope or the words to say what they're feeling. When I played this song for my husband John, his first reaction was, "That's what I would want to say to you.'" The song's video showcases cancer survivors and their supporters as they courageously live their lives. Among those appearing in the video are singer Sheryl Crow, "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts, "Today" show anchor Hoda Kotb, and well-known television journalist Katie Couric.
