Born on July 29, 1966, at Sharon, Kansas. She has two brothers and a sister. Martina started loving country music through her father’s local band, The Chiffers. After a while, she joined the band by playing keyboard and singing along with its members. They usually played at local gigs in their hometown.

Martina graduated from high school and later entered into college. She then realized that she is more passionate about music rather than studying. So, she dropped out to focus on her passion for music.  

In 1987, Schiff met John McBride. The couple got engaged shortly right after they met. Thus, on May 15, 1988, Martina tied the knot with John. They have three daughters: Delaney Katharine, Emma Justin, and Ava Rose Kathleen.  As of now, their marriage is still going strong and there is no news regarding any extramarital affairs between the couple.
