Dale McBride was born in Lampasas, Texas on December 18, 1936. He began recording in the 1950s, having several local rockabilly hits in Mississippi. In the late 1960s, McBride was discovered by Dean Martin, who signed him to a contract with Reprise Records. At the time, however, the label was focused mainly on adult contemporary, and McBride did not have significant success on the label. He later founded his own, Thunderbird Records, where he began recording country music cover songs and original material. This label also produced his first chart single in "Corpus Christi Wind".

Between 1976 and 1979, McBride recorded for Con Brio Records, charting several singles including two Top 40 country hits. After leaving the label, he continued to record into the 1980s,with his son Terry playing in his band. Terry McBride had several chart singles in the 1990s as lead singer of the band McBride & the Ride. Dale McBride died of a brain tumor in 1992.

In 2007, GMV Nashville released a remastered version of The Dale McBride Collection, an album originally released in 1992 following McBride's death. Soon after in 2008, the label also released Takin' A Long Look.
