McBryde was raised in Mammoth Spring, Arkansas, taking to music at the age when most kids were running wild in the backyard, dressing dolls or playing with trains. At three, shed secretly pluck her fathers guitar like an upright bass, and after about the 17th time being caught, her father bought her a guitar of her own. When she was twelve, she played her parents and grandparents her very first composition. It was at Arkansas State when, while a member of the marching band, McBryde finally started sharing her voice with others first at karaoke parties, then in a band, and then in Memphis where shed play a mix of cover and original songs while still commuting from college. When McBryde finally moved to Nashville in 2007, she settled with a friend at an apartment in a building that housed storage units not the most glamorous of homes, but enough of a place to crash in between a healthy dose of dive bars, biker hangouts, and colorful joints where she fought to have her songs heard.Her first EP, the self-released 2016 Jalopies and Expensive Guitars was just a taste of what McBryde could do, and, on her full-length debut, she melds her songwriting chops with the vision of producer Jay Joyce, peppering her tales with a touch of guitar-driven rock fury but offering plenty of room for her emotive, vulnerable twang to move softly through songs like Girl Goin' Nowhere, which was written the morning that Guy Clark passed away. McBryde isn't afraid to tell the truth, get raw and real and use the spirits of country, folk and rock when it serves her greater purpose. McBryde is a 6x GRAMMY nominee, receiving nods for Best Country Album for her major label debut Girl Going Nowhere, follow-up Never Will and Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, along with Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for her smash hit Girl Goin Nowhere, and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for Never Wanted To Be That Girl with Carly Pearce, which also marked her first No. 1 single.
