(CBS/The Early Show)
Today, country star Martina McBride performed on our plaza
, in advance of her appearance on "Fashion Rocks"
Friday night on CBS
. I got to ask her about one of my favorite songs of the year, the inspirational "Anyway" from her latest album "Wake Up Laughing." She says lyrics are paramount in her songs and for the first time, she tried her hand at writing on this album -- with great results. She is also the solo producer and really took her time, about eight months, to cut the record. Martina's easing up her touring schedule because her girls are back in school, but you can catch her performance Friday night! (As for the fashion scoop, she says she's wearing BCBG on the red carpet.)Watch Martina's performanceCheck out photos
