She has opened for acts such as Walker Hayes, Uncle Kracker, Sammy Kershaw, Tracy Lawrence, Aaron Tippin, and more.
“Brooke McBride is an awesome talent and a beautiful person, no wonder fans love her wherever she goes,” says Daniel Kleindienst, Banner’s co-founder and co-writer on the new single.
McBride says, “I’m honored to be working with Banner Music on my single ‘Bury The Pain’ as a Banner Believer. Daniel Kleindienst is one of my favorite people to write with, and when I told him I had an idea for a murder ballad, he jumped on it. This song is different than anything I’ve ever put out, and I’m so excited to have the support from Banner Music.”
