Ashley McBryde has never been afraid to embrace what makes her stand out, as Rolling Stone observes that “going her own way is what McBryde does best,” while Pollstar says the “country songstress did it the old-fashioned way: grinding out dates, writing songs about women being counted out for not fitting the mold.” Those truths have gained the ACM and CMA award winner with a fun-loving, loyal fanbase, who made it clear they’re ready for McBryde to return to the road.
McBryde makes her headlining debut at the historic Ryman Auditorium with two back-to-back dates selling out on Aug. 26 and Aug. 27, prompting the four-time GRAMMY nominee to add a third night at the Mother Church of country music. Tickets for the Saturday, Aug. 28 show will go on sale Friday, July 9 at 10 a.m. CT at ryman.com.
“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!” shares 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!” McBryde concludes.
McBryde’s weekend at the Ryman will include unique events for members of her fan club, the Trybe. On Thursday, Aug. 26, Ashley's footwear partner Ariat will host an exclusive event at their 5th + Broadway store. On Saturday, Aug. 28, Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa will host a can’t miss pre-game celebration. Access to these special fan club events will be extremely limited and determined by random lottery drawings. Only premium Trybe members are eligible to win access to these events.

Lainey Wilson will join McBryde on Thursday, Aug. 26, with support from Caylee Hammack on Friday, Aug. 27 while Caitlyn Smith will open the show on Saturday, Aug. 28.
Undeterred by the obstacles women in country music face, McBryde released her critically-acclaimed sophomore album Never Will in April 2020, with Variety praising that the Arkansas-native “has come up with an 11-song collection finely honed enough to beckon the question: Does modern mainstream country deserve writing this good? Maybe not, but it’s getting it anyway, even if it’s not in the form of top 10 hits,” while Paste declares, “If radio execs and DJs have any sense at all, they’ll play AshleyMcBryde until we’re beggin’ them to stop. Few are as deserving of mainstream genre stardom as her, and Never Will is all the proof we need.”
McBryde embarks on her This Town Talks Tour this summer, boasting a run of 36 cities across the U.S. into 2022, wrapping on Jan.15, 2022 in Cleveland, Ohio with the support of Morgan Wade, Priscilla Block, Adam Hambrick and Ray Fulcher. Tickets are on sale now at AshleyMcBryde.com.
Fans can expect to hear songs from Never Will, the only album to be nominated by the Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association and The Recording Academy (same cycle), including RIAA Platinum-Certified “One Night Standards,” “Martha Divine,” which NPR shares is her “rowdiest jam to date” and that “when she plays it live, this thing will shake ceilings,” and title track “Never Will” among the hard-hitting “American Scandal” and seminal track “Girl Goin’ Nowhere”from her groundbreaking debut album.
McBryde’s Never Will: Live From A Distance EP, featuring songs from the celebrated album, is available everywhere now.
