Rachel Proctor, the cowriter of Martina McBride’s ”Where Would You Be,” steps forth on Where I Belong, her own debut, with a keen melodic gift, an assured yet vulnerable soprano, and a firm grasp of Nashville’s dual love affair with country and pop. Like McBride, she hits her stride with songs of strong, independent women, particularly on the domestic-violence and child-abuse ballad ”Me and Emily.” Think of her as Martina for the Gen-Y set, with McBride’s over-the-top delivery replaced by kitchen-sink realism.
