Ashley McBryde Announces New Album, ‘Girl Going Nowhere’
Ashley McBryde is getting ready to drop her brand-new album, Girl Going Nowhere, on March 30. The project will be the up-and-comer's first since signing with Warner Music Nashville; it was produced by Jay Joyce.
McBryde had a hand in writing each of the 11 tracks on Girl Going Nowhere, an autobiographical collection. Her first single off of the project, "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega," is already making waves in the country music world, and fans can hear (and see the music video for) "American Scandal" below. The record's title track, meanwhile, is one that McBryde says was written after the death of country music legend Guy Clark.
"I'm not a pretty crier, and I got to my write with Jeremy Bussey that morning, red and blotchy," McBryde shares in a press release. "So, he said, 'For Guy, maybe we should write a good song, one you’d want to play at the Opry someday.' So, I told the story of when I was back in Algebra class, and we were going around the room saying what we wanted to do when we grew up. When it got to me, I said, 'I'm going to move to Nashville and write songs, and they're going to be on the radio.' The teacher looked at me and said, ‘That won’t happen, and you better have a good backup plan.' It didn't put the fire out, it just added to it."
