Martina McBride, who performed Saturday at Target Center in Minneapolis, is one of country music's most celebrated female vocalists. But her tastes are eclectic. Her first concert was Ozzy Osbourne, her partner on CMT's "Crossroads" was Pat Benatar. Ask her to name her go-to noncountry album and she quickly cites Patty Griffin's "Flaming Red" from 1998.

"I think it's an amazing record. I listen to it over and over again. I love her singing and the songwriting and the musicianship -- everything about it. It's one of my favorite records."
