For a girl that was supposedly going nowhere, Ashley McBryde has been taking her music everywhere over the past year. Since the release of her major label debut Girl Going Nowhere in March, the artist that NPR called “one of the genre’s most important new voices” has been all over the U.S. on her first-ever headlining The Girl Going Nowhere Tour and recently made a return trip across the pond to play a few select dates with Luke Combs in the U.K., having been named one of Rolling Stone’s highlights of C2C Festival in London earlier in the year.
While in London, McBryde headlined a sold-out show at Islington Assembly Hall after having performed the title track of her debut album, “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” on “Later…with Jools Holland,” the premiere music program across the U.K., which has been a staple on U.K. screens since 1992. The live show aired on Tuesday (10/9) on BBC TV and there will be another performance on the Saturday night show (10/13).
In addition to the appearance on “Later…”, McBryde’s busy media schedule brought her to the sofa of BBC Breakfast on October 1 and recording interviews with some of the most influential and respected voices in country music broadcasting, including Chris Country Radio, Ricky Ross, and "Whispering" Bob Harris, who described "Girl Goin’ Nowhere” as “a wonderful song,” giving listeners a preview of the full session which will air early next year. Following the successful run in the U.K., she will return to the U.S. for further tour dates. Additionally, McBryde will join Little Big Town on their 2019 Breakers Canada Tour. In February, she will appear as a special guest as part of George Strait’s “Strait to Vegas” residency at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

About Ashley McBryde Lauded by The New York Times as “an alluringly flexible singer, fluent in classic country, blues and Southern rock, with a voice that moves easily from tender to tough,” Ashley McBryde caught the attention of some of Nashville’s most raucous entertainers, landing her dates opening for Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, and, most recently, Miranda Lambert and Luke Combs. The Washington Post raves, "McBryde's blue-collar storytelling and straightforward singing set her apart," including a set during her debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage, notably sharing "Girl Goin' Nowhere," the seminal title track from her March 30, 2018 Jay Joyce-produced LP for Atlantic Records/Warner Nashville. Girl Going Nowhere was the biggest debut by a solo country artist this year and earned the Arkansas native critical acclaim from The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Variety and more. McBryde is currently on her first-ever headlining tour, The Girl Going Nowhere Tour and will appear as a special guest on the February dates of George Strait’s recently announced 2019 “Strait to Vegas” shows at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
