Ashley McBryde Marks Milestone By Selling Out Ryman Twice
It’s a rite of passage in country music, and a barometer of success. There are some other accolades that perhaps eclipse it like debuting on the Grand Ole Opry—something Ashley McBryde did back on June 16th, 2017, bringing tears to eyes and the crowd to their feet when she performed “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.” But playing the Mother Church of Country Music itself, and not just selling it out, but doing so on successive nights is quite a significant accomplishment itself.
Ashley McBryde announced a two-night Ryman Auditorium residency on August 26th and 27th as part of her “This Town Talks” tour and the dates have since sold out. So now they have added a 3rd date on August 28th to meet the demand. Lainey Wilson opens on August 26, Caylee Hammack on August 27th, and Caitlyn Smith will open the new show on Saturday, August 28th. The dates are part of her ongoing “This Town Talks” tour.
“There’s nothing better than performing at the Ryman except headlining, and there’s nothing better than headlining the Mother Church and selling it out…twice!” says McBryde. “We’re so grateful to our fans who always show up for us so enthusiastically. We can’t thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to play one of the most sacred places in the world three nights in a row. They say good things come in threes, so we’ll be ready to shake it up even more on Saturday night!”
Some will get to attend these shows, and many won’t. But all Ashley McBryde fans should celebrate this achievement. She’s a “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” no more.
Tickets for the new Ryman show go on sale this Friday.

Ashley McBryde is another example of superb artistry that is excelling without the benefit of radio, or at the least not near the benefit she deserves. Also, give the much maligned Eric Church kudos for doing his part to expose her publicly, in addition to others. Thus far she has stayed true to herself and may she continue to do so.
She might be the female version of Chris Stapleton in the making.

Question. Does she perform ever with a full electric band? Every time ive seen her on the Opry shes solo acoustic. Just wondering. Solo acoustic is great, mind you, but it can be tough in the bars and noisier venues to hold peoples interest without a band. Curious if anybody has seen her live in a band setting. If so, any pedal steel?

I saw her a couple of years ago at the Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown, OH and she had a band with her.

Yes, she will be performing with a full band. No, I have not seen her perform live yet, so I can’t vouch for how good it is.

She plays with The Dead Horse Band. Due to Covid 19 restrictions she had to play acoustically.

I’m going to one of those shows!

I’ve seen her three times with Deadhorse, her band. Amazing every single time!

Not bad for a girl who can’t seem to get a top 10 at radio…

I don’t know who she is, Sounds like she has a great future. But… fyi. The Ryman seats approximately 2300 people x2=4600 people. Not a huge feat.

When you consider the fact that most male singers that are endlessly topping the chart can barely sellout small venues (without reducing the price) and then there’s also adding more dates due to demand, it makes this look like a win.

She puts on an amazing show!! Church said it best!! “She’s a Whiskey Drinkin Bad Ass”
