Listen to Martina McBride on iHeartRadio

Martina McBride has more than a new album on the way. The country star is putting together her own cookbook. 

Around the Table is a host's companion.  It features recipes along with Martina's party planning advice, including menu suggestions, decoration ideas, and other tips for successful small gatherings. 

The singer also peppers in her own anecdotes and memories throughout the pages.  Martina is excited about the project.  She says she has "a passion for food and entertaining," so she's thrilled to be compiling all her knowledge into her new book.  "Around the Table" is slated to hit stores on October 7th. 

Fans won't have to wait quite as long for Martin's next album.  She'll release her collection of pop and R&B covers, Everlasting, on April 8th.  It's her first studio set since 2011's Eleven.
