    good job Martina! Loved it!! I like te orginal so when sum1 covers it–i become leary–but she did an AWESOME job–plus she is a great singer anyway!! :)

  • Kevin

    I think McBride has the strongest voice in music today, perhaps ever. I have seen her in concert twice, it is all real and she does not stop!

  • swimmer

    Love it. Great job Martina and Sara is proud. :)

  • Jenn

    LOVE Martina!!! And her version of this song is truly fantastic!!! :)))

  • JB

    I’m sorry, but that was karaoke bar quality. No wonder Sara likes it, it makes people appreciate her version and talent that much more. Martina is a very talented artist, but in this particular rendition of Love Song, not so much. That being said, she looked like she had fun singing it, so keep doing what you’re doing and ignore idiots like me.

  • Eric

    Not a huge fan. Martina herself was good, but the band seemed very uncomfortable doing that sort of music.

    One of those guitars should have been electric… maybe it’s just the mix, but the drums were way too heavy and the piano could barely be heard.

  • Alejandra

    AMAZING. Loved it!

  • mzbet

    I love Martina and Sara both and I loved this cover!

  • Joyce

    Excellent!! One of the best voices in music…country or otherwise! Looking great also.

  • Marisa

    Yeah Girl!!! She can make ANYTHING better. :D

  • Julie

    I like Martina McBride, but this was not very good. I challenge anyone to listen to Sara’s live version of this song (on her “Between the Lines” album) and say Martina’s cover is better. Sara has a much stronger voice that works better for this kind of song.

  • Chuck

    She sounds good, and so does the band, but what’s the point of a cover if you don’t change anything up? I agree this that is basically karaoke.
