Bonus track: 1. Blue Bayou Waking Up Laughing is the ninth album from country singer Martina McBride. It marks the first time in her career she has co-written songs and produced an album solo. This album produced three chart singles for McBride on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart: "Anyway" at #5, "How I Feel" at #15 and "For These Times" at #35. The album sold 139,000 copies in its first week, debuting at number four on the Billboard 200. Following the album's release, McBride embarked on the Waking Up Laughing Tour on April 12, 2007. Content Waking Up Laughing is the first album of McBride's career in which she co-wrote any of the material. McBride wrote the lead-off single "Anyway" with Brad and Brett Warren of The Warren Brothers. This song reached #5 on the Hot Country Songs charts in early 2007, becoming McBride's first Top Ten country hit in three years. The Warren Brothers and McBride also co-wrote "How I Feel", the second single, with Chris Lindsey and Aimee Mayo. "For These Times" was inspired by former Republican senator Rick Santorum, who was defeated in 2006, and his daughter. When his daughter began to cry at his loss, the cameras focused on her, inspiring Leslie Satcher to write the song. It was also inspired by her Pastor, who stated "For these times in which we live, you are going to need this book." referring to the Bible. The song received a 2009 Grammy nomination. "Cry Cry ('Til the Sun Shines)" was covered by former Trick Pony lead vocalist Heidi Newfield on her debut solo album, What Am I Waiting For, from which it was released as a single.
