Add another big name to the line-up for the St. Regis “Big Stars, Bright Nights” summer concert series at Deer Valley: Country singer Martina McBride.

McBride — four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year — will headline a show Thursday, July 3, at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater at Deer Valley.

McBride’s career has been stellar for more than two decades, with five platinum albums and a slew of chart-topping singles — including “A Broken Wing,” “Wrong Again,” “I Love You,” “Blessed” and “This One’s For the Girls.”

A snippet of her 1994 song “Independence Day” is heard across America every day, as introduction to right-wing talk-show host Sean Hannity’s radio program.

In early April, McBride released “Everlasting,” is a compilation of covers of classic rock, R&B and soul tunes first recorded by Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, The Supremes, Van Morrison and others.

Tickets for McBride’s Deer Valley show are $55 for reserve seats, $40 for lawn seating. Tickets go on sale to Park City Institute members Thursday at 10 a.m., and to the general public on May 8 at 10 a.m. Go to the concert series’ website for tickets.
