Martina McBride has provided us with many heartwarming songs over the years, but none more so than 2001’s “Blessed.” Released as the second single off of her Greatest Hits album, “Blessed” was a number one country hit. It also managed to cross over to the pop chart, where it peaked at the 31st spot. 

Written by Brett James, Hillary Lindsey, and Troy Verges, “Blessed” serves as McBride’s way of expressing her thankfulness for the wonderful things and people in her life. Knowing that her life is full of blessings, she thanks God every day for everything he’s given to her.

The song’s heartfelt message was further expressed through its music video. Directed by Deaton Flanigen, the video shows McBride in an almost fairytale-like woodland setting.

Wearing a beautiful gown, McBride stands on a small dock overlooking a pond. With flowers and brightly-colored trees surrounding her, McBride sings about all of the beauty she finds in being so “blessed” in life.

Although McBride didn’t write “Blessed,” the song seemed like the perfect fit for her. Troy said they had her in mind when they wrote it, telling 94.9 Star Country,We wrote it for Martina, then we pitched it to her – and it ended up with her.

Since McBride felt such a strong connection to “Blessed,” it’s no surprise that she added a personal element to the music video. Her husband and daughters can be seen in the clip, which is what makes it so touching.
