Grand Ole Opry member Ashley McBryde joined “The Jennifer Hudson Show” yesterday, March 1 to discuss her latest release, recent GRAMMY win for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for her chart-topping “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Carly Pearce and performed an impromptu song based on an audience member’s story.
Last week, McBryde released her latest single “Light On In The Kitchen” to critical acclaim, with The New York Times praising, “Ashley McBryde maintains her position as country’s most down-to-earth songwriter,” while Rolling Stone observes, “With its gentle, brushed drums and light shadings of mandolin, it’s a delicate ballad that feels ready for radio and the Grand Ole Opry stage but comes with mountains of good advice.”
With “Light On In The Kitchen” impacting Country radio on March 27, Billboard boasts, “Is Ashley McBryde capable of writing a less-than-stellar song? It seems not,” calling it “another ace from this singer-songwriter,” as Stereogum notes “McBryde excels at tough-minded character sketches with Southern-rock edges, but she’s also great at this kind of sentimental fare.”
The Arkansas native performed in her home state over the weekend and heads back out on the road next week before embarking on a run of additional headlining shows, festivals, two dates at the Grand Ole Opry, three dates with Eric Church on The Outsiders Revival Tour and seven shows with Jelly Roll this spring and summer.
