Martina McBride has been one of country music’s leading female voices for more than two decades. But at home, she’s just a mom. At least, that’s what her teenage daughters think.

They understand it in context because they have musicians that they look up to and admire,” Martina said, according to CMT. “I think it still blows their minds that I have fans. They’re like, ‘What? You’re just mom!’”
