McBride & The Ride is releasing their new EP, Marlboros & Avon, this Friday (July 28).
The new five-song collection features all three original members, Terry McBride (lead vocals/bass), Ray Herndon (vocals/guitar) and Billy Thomas (vocals/drums), marking the first time in nearly 30 years since they’ve done a project together. The 90’s country favorites have been steadily building their return starting with the release of the title track last fall.
The nostalgic “Marlboros & Avon” sets the stage for an act that has emerged on the scene refreshed and ready to entertain following a couple of decades individually playing with artists like Brooks & Dunn, Lyle Lovett and Vince Gill. Listeners will also find the band’s take on Webb Pierce’s iconic “Honky Tonk Song” with twangy steel and throwback guitars as well as “Along Comes A Girl,” which features a ‘see what they did there’ twist of the hook on the new EP.
“We are just having so much fun. Writing and producing this project together has been super collaborative and a great way to use our collective strengths,” McBride shares. “There was no need for bells and whistles on the recording, it’s us playing stone cold country music just like we do at the live show.”
The group plans to celebrate the EP’s release with a free show Aug. 9 at 6 p.m. in Nashville at Ole Red.
