The country music industry and fans alike of the married duo Terra Bella have taken notice to a conspicuous change across the couple's social media platform; they've changed their stage name appropriately to "Joe & Martina".
Joe & Martina took liberty to their social media accounts to explain the reason behind their decision from the comfort of their home with their dogs in lap.
"It's Joe and Martina... and we're 'Joe & Martina, we always have been. If you guys have taken notice we've got a big change that's happening right now on our social media and really with our career," said Martina. "We've decided to change our name, ditch Terra Bella, and be who we've always been... 'Joe & Martina'. We're still the same---bringing you the same great, authentic Country music with our roots deeply planted in California. Here we are, being ourselves, as the married duo 'Joe & Martina'."

Originally from California's Central Valley, Joe and Martina Costa have been performing together for the better part of a decade. Joe and Martina have toured primarily up and down the West Coast and across the United States playing clubs, theatres, and rodeos as well as opening for national acts such as Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge, and Lee Brice, to name a few. In August of 2013, the couple decided to move 2,200 miles east to "Music City “ and further pursue their artistry. Joe has since acquired a cut on Luke Combs’ double platinum-selling album This One’s For You with the song “Don’t Tempt Me”. Joe and Martina were introduced to esteemed producer/guitarist, Johnny Garcia, who began to coach and produce Joe and Martina's (previously known as Terra Bella) material in between tour legs with Garth Brooks. In 2016, the debut EP Road To Forever came to fruition and scored the duo's first Billboard Indicator (#51) and Music Row (#42) charting song with the single "You've Got That Somethin'." Ahead of the release of their first LP There's A Country Song in 2018, Joe and Martina were included in Billboard's list of "Country Artists to Watch,". The duo continuously unravels the ties that bind independent acts from achieving commercial success, most recently through the worldwide music video premiere of bona fide small-town anthem "Middle of Nowhere USA" via CMT.com.
