Ashley McBryde Earns Grammy Nod for Country Album
“Girl going nowhere” Ashley McBryde has done anything but in 2018. The artist NPR deems “country music’s most charismatic, naturalistic new voice this year,” released her major label debut Girl Going Nowhere in March to much critical acclaim—from Billboard, Rolling Stone and Variety to The New York Times, NPR and The Washington Post—and today, the 11-track album, released via Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville, features McBryde as a co-writer on every song and earns the Arkansas-native her first GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album. McBryde joins Brothers Osborne, Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves and Kelsea Ballerini in this category, and marks the only debut album nominated.”I’m stunned and humbled and just blown away,” McBryde said to fans. “And I’m honored to be alongside artists I admire so much. When other girls my age were planning their dream weddings, I dreamt of a GRAMMY nomination. I don’t even need to win. Five-year-old me and teenage me are both satisfied as of now.”
