Evolution is the fourth album released by Martina McBride, released in 1997 by RCA Records. It included the hit singles "Happy Girl", "A Broken Wing" and "Valentine", the latter of which became her first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as her first major crossover hit. The song "I'm Little But I'm Loud" is a recording of McBride when she was seven years old, while "Valentine" is a re-recording of a song which Brickman and McBride previously released from his 1997 album Picture This. The original Picture This version charted at #3 on the AC charts and #68 on the country charts, while the re-recording featured here was a Top Ten country hit. In the U.S. the album was certified Gold on 12/23/1997, Platinum on 5/15/1998, 2xPlatinum on 6/24/1999 and 3xPlatinum on 2/26/2001 by the R.I.A.A.

Also released from this album was "Still Holding On", a duet with Clint Black which was originally released on Black's 1997 album Nothin' but the Taillights. This was Martina's first album to have a crossover-friendly country-pop sound, which was a departure from her earlier neotraditional country albums.
