It’s been Ashley McBryde’s underdog status that has motivated her to defy odds in the mainstream and do things her own way, and it resulted in much of the positive reception for her major label debut Girl Going Nowhere released earlier in 2018. The ironic title was made that much more poignant when she took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry to sing the title track, and stood in front of an arena crowd at an Eric Church concert where he introduced McBryde to his fan base. Ashley’s also been playing opening slots recently for Miranda Lambert and Luke Combs.
Now it’s time for McBryde to go places on her own, and that’s what she’ll be doing starting in September, and stretching through the end of the year as part of the Girl Going Nowhere Tour. The run will see multiple shows in the UK where she will once again reunite with Luke Combs, as well as a big opportunity at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. But mostly Ashley McBryde is hitting the club circuit to continue to fertilize the grassroots of her fan base in intimate settings mostly in the South and Midwest.
Ashley McBryde has become the unlikely country star whose song “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega” continues to hold steady on country radio. Her music has a decidedly more rock edge to it, but still with country songwriting as its foundation that has created a fervent fan base crossing country music’s cultural divide.
The Girl Going Nowhere Tour has 30 dates officially, but Ashley will be playing festivals and other shows this summer, so check below for something near you.
