Ashley McBryde’s New Album, ‘Never Will,’ Coming April 3

Warner Music Nashville’s Ashley McBryde will release her sophomore album, Never Will, on April 3. McBryde co-wrote nine of the tracks on this 11-song, Jay Joyce-produced project, which includes recent releases such as the clever “One Night Standards” and hard-charging revenge murder anthem “Martha Divine.” The project follows her 2018 major label debut, Girl Going Nowhere, which offered her breakthrough song “Girl Goin’ Nowhere,” as well as “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega,” and “Radioland.”

“The significance behind the album title comes from the lyrics in the title track: ‘I Didn’t, I Don’t and I Never Will,’” McBryde says with the same conviction that fueled Nowhere. “Before we recorded it with Jay [Joyce] in the studio, I said to my bandmates, ‘If we’re going to cut this and put it on the record, you’re promising anyone who ever listens to our music, we don’t listen to the noise in the background. We didn’t, we don’t and we never will. Don’t cut it unless you’re willing to promise it.’ And we cut it right then.”

Since her 2018 debut, McBryde has earned an ACM Award for New Female Vocalist of the Year, a CMA Award for New Artist of the Year, and is currently a two-time Grammy nominee at the upcoming awards show, for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance, both for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.”
