Lingua disponibile: ingleseAshley McBryde is a vocalist and songwriter with a touch of rock & roll swagger, a honky tonk heart, and a lyrical voice that puts a modern-day spin on classic country themes. Debuting in 2006 with a self-title album, she worked hard for over a decade before gaining awards for New Female Vocalist and New Artist of the Year during 2019-2020 from the major country academies. McBryde also earned multiple Grammy nominations around her 2018 album Girl Going Nowhere. Her co-written "One Night Standards" became a country Top 40 hit in 2019, serving to introduce her 2020 LP Never Will. Hailing from Mammoth Spring, Arkansas, McBryde first displayed her interest in music when she was three years old and tried to play her father's guitar. After repeatedly telling young Ashley to leave the instrument alone, her parents decided the best solution was to get her a guitar of her own. After learning to play, McBryde stuck with the guitar, and at 17 she wrote her first song. Initially, she was shy about sharing her work, and it wasn't until she enrolled at Arkansas State University (where she played in the marching band) that she began playing her songs for people outside her immediate family. In 2005, McBryde recorded an album's worth of songs, titled Ashley McBryde, that she released herself in early 2006. Since she was a teenager, her dream had been to go to Nashville and break into the music business, and in 2007, she finally pulled up stakes and relocated to Music City. She assembled a band and played any club or bar that would have her, and she began making a name for herself. She won the Colgate Country Showdown talent competition in 2009 and 2010, and the same year, she and her band won a statewide "battle of the bands" in Tennessee. In 2011, McBryde released her second album, Elsebound, which once again was issued through her own label. More touring through the South followed, and in addition to headlining her own club dates, McBryde was opening shows for such stars as Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, Chris Cagle, and Hank Williams, Jr. (The latter came out on-stage while McBryde played his hit "Family Tradition," with Bocephus approvingly putting his arm around her as she sang.) In 2016, McBryde issued an eight-song EP, Jalopies & Expensive Guitars, that helped build a buzz about her music, and country star Eric Church began singing her praises, describing her as a "whiskey-drinkin' badass" and joining her on-stage to duet on her song "Bible and a .44." After Church gave McBryde his endorsement, more and more people began to take notice, and she finally broke through with the single "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega," which found an appreciative audience on streaming services and led to her making her first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry in June 2017. A year later, she returned with her major-label debut, Girl Going Nowhere, produced by Jay Joyce and released by Warner Music Nashville. The album included the hit "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega" and earned McBryde her first Grammy nomination, for Best Country Album. 2019 saw McBryde issue the singles "Girl Goin' Nowhere" and "One Night Standards," and she was nominated for two Grammy Awards that December (Best Country Song and Solo Performance for "Girl Goin' Nowhere"). Her next full-length, Never Will, was again produced by Joyce and appeared in April 2020.

Country - Uscito il 03 aprile 2020 | Warner Music Nashville
Eric Church aveva dichiarato che Ashley McBryde era la sua nuova artista preferita. E sicuramente amerà anche Never Will, il secondo album della cantautrice, perché contiene tutto ciò che lui apprezza: testi intelligenti e poetici, chitarre roventi e zero fronzoli! Potrebbe anche essere un po' geloso di One Night Standards e della bellezza del suo testo (“How it goes is/bar closes/there’s no king bed covered in roses”). McBryde condivide con Church anche la passione per la cultura outlaw, evidenziata da canzoni come la honkytonk First Thing I Reach For e la sfacciata Voo Doo Doll. E se la maggior parte delle canzoni country utilizzano il gospel seguendone i dettami, su Shut Up Sheila, McBryde è una donna in lutto che rifiuta i bigotti e le loro preghiere. Questo album alterna ballate agrodolci (Sparrow), brani più ballabili in stile John Cougar (Hang In There), tracce affascinanti come O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Velvet Red) ed esplosive come Martha Divine, che ricorda Jason Isbell. Si percepisce anche il dolore e la rabbia causate dal suicidio del fratello di McBryde. E Stone è una canzone molto commovente a riguardo. Alla luce di tutto questo, possiamo dire che l'eco di questo nuovo album di Ashley McBryde risuonerà a lungo per le strade di Nashville. © Shelly Ridenour/Qobuz
