Ashley McBryde Signs With Warner Music Nashville
Singer-songwriter Ashley McBryde has signed with the Warner Music Nashville family. The up-and-comer will be part of the Atlantic Records branch of Warner Music Nashville, All Access reports.
As part of her deal with Atlantic, McBryde will be promoted via Team WAR. The artist has been performing for more than a decade; she released her first EP in 2006, and has also released two full-length albums: Elsebound in 2011 and 2016's Jalopies & Expensive Guitars.
A seasoned opening act for acts such as Wynonna Judd, Willie Nelson and Chris Stapleton, McBryde's single "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega" hit SiriusXM earlier this year, and its popularity is growing. Now released as an official single through Warner Music Nashville, the song will officially impact country radio on Oct. 16. The classic honky-tonk song was inspired by a real-life visit to a dive bar by one of the tune's co-writers, Jesse Rice. McBryde's sweet and sultry twang gives the tune the treatment it needs to be a hit.
In April of this year, McBryde was invited to play onstage with Eric Church, who calls McBryde his “favorite artist out right now that’s not out yet.” McBryde will join Church as an opener on tour this fall as she works on her upcoming record.
