Martina McBride didn’t want the tour to end: “Can we come back and play again tomorrow night?” she asked the crowd that had packed into TJ’s Corral at Carson Valley Inn.

It was a girls’ night out for some on Sunday, with plenty of couples, too.

McBride and her band played for nearly two hours, delivering some “Wild Angels” in the end, along with three encore songs, “Two More Bottles,” “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” The makings of a country party, for sure.

During the song “Daughter’s Eye,” she noted that her daughters are 26, 21 and 14, and dedicated the tune to them. Mothers in the crowd held their daughters close, and they gently swayed to the music.

McBride prompted the audience members to light up the sky with their cellphones while she sang “Gonna Love You Through It.”

The test of a beloved artist comes in comments from fans. Here’s what some had to say:

“I grew up listening to Martina McBride, and I have been looking forward to this concert for months. The song “A Broken Wing” has a very personal meaning to me. The song tells us that whatever we go through in life we can get through it and come out better in the end. All of her songs have such amazing messages and that really resonates with people. She lived up to everything I expected and so much more.”

— Jess Grant , Gardnerville 

“What a beautiful venue At TJ’s Corral! Martina really showed her passion, love and emotions through all of her songs.”

— Lisa Wooley, Dayton

“Great girls’ night with all my awesome gals. What an amazing artist in a beautiful venue! I love enjoying nights out here at TJ’s Corral and happy to have such great artists coming through the town.”

— Starr Crawford, Minden

“I would say it was a great show for our small town, she still sounds amazing. It was a fun show and night. I sure had fun with my girls.”.

— Edie Robertson, Gardnerville
