Reigning ACM New Female Artist, CMA New Artist of the Year and three-time GRAMMY nominee Ashley McBryde will join ABC’s “Good Morning America” via video conference for a special live acoustic performance of “Hang In There Girl” from her new album Never Will on Monday, June 1 in the 8 a.m. CT hour.
“Hang In There Girl,” the opening track from Never Will, was praised by 
Rolling Stone as an “anthem of solidarity,” while The Washington Post notes, “McBryde makes the guitars do Mellencampy things, but they quiet down during the titular refrain, which shimmers like a Fleetwood Mac song being played on digital harpsichords in paradise. It’s one of the few times her music takes us by surprise.”
Released April 3, Never Will has since garnered critical acclaim from 
NPRRolling StoneBillboardVarietySPINPaste and many more. The Washington Post states, “McBryde’s lyrics almost always stick up for the wounded, the flawed, the lonesome and the misunderstood,” while  Wall Street Journal claims McBryde has “moved to the forefront of today’s country, and this consistent, exciting and always smart album shows why.”
Never Will is available everywhere 
About Ashley McBryde
Ashley McBryde learned how to sing sad songs in a biker bar off a rural Arkansas highway–– and it shows. Her 2018 major label debut Girl Going Nowhere (Warner Music Nashville) charmed the New York TimesNPRRolling StonePasteThe Washington Post, and more, all en route to landing a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album. McBryde closed out 2019 with ACM New Female Artist, CMT Breakout Artist of the Year, a New Artist of the Year win at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards and two nominations for the 2020 GRAMMYs for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.” Her follow-up Never Will, released April 3, was tagged by Rolling Stone as one of the most anticipated of the year alongside NPR, who also ranked lead single “One Night Standards” as one of the best songs of 2019. Produced once again by Jay Joyce, Never Will reveals the witty, confessional, detail-driven songwriting addressing a wide spectrum of blue-collar Southern women’s experience introduced on Girl Going Nowhere is still here, but perhaps even sharper. The music itself is stadium-ready rock-and-roll with a bluegrass wink or two and country music’s storytelling heart––and McBryde, no longer new, is the music’s ordained and highly capable standard bearer. McBryde is currently nominated for two 2020 ACM Awards for Song of the Year for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” (artist + songwriter) and another nod for Music Event of the Year as a guest on Miranda Lambert’s “Fooled Around and Fell In Love.”  For more information, visit or follow her at, Instagram @AshleyMcBryde and Twitter at @AshleyMcBryde.
