Ashley McBryde is taking her big voice, blue-collar storytelling and potent stage presence on the road for her first headlining tour throughout the U.S. and Europe. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 25.
“The Girl Going Nowhere Tour” will be going everywhere this fall hitting multiple cities beginning Sept. 5 in Atlanta, Georgia with international stops in the U.K. and Scotland, before culminating Dec. 15 in Rochester, New York (full details below).
The tour follows on the heels of McBryde’s wildly successful Warner Music Nashville release, Girl Going Nowhere, which was produced and mixed by Jay Joyce. The record showcases McBryde’s artistic vision and quickly established her as one of the genre’s keenest songwriters bringing unwavering honesty back into a pop-preoccupied genre.
On Pollstar‘s cover this month, the headline reads, “Ashley McBryde: A Girl Going Everywhere And Doing It By Just Being Herself.” The Arkansas native has been described by notable music critic Ann Powers as having “one of those voices that might belong to your sister or your best friend – if your sister or your best friend could belt like Loretta Lynn and croon like Reba McEntire.” She summed up her talent by saying McBryde was “Country music’s most exciting new country voice.”
No stranger to the stage, McBryde has opened for some of the biggest names in country music, including industry heavyweights Chris Stapleton and Eric Church. In conjunction with the success of “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega,” the singer/songwriter played select dates on the “Sirius XM Presents: The Highway Finds Tour” including stops in Washington, D.C., New York and Nashville. She most recently hit the road opening for Luke Combs on his “Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time Tour” and Miranda Lambert’s “Livin’ Like Hippies Tour.”
Now McBryde is ready to take her rock-fueled fury and candor on the road headlining her own “The Girl Going Nowhere Tour” in the below markets. One of the women that Paste declares is “saving country music from itself” will be making one special stop for a benefit show in November celebrating the powerful work by Girls Inc., a non-profit organization with the central goal of empowering and inspiring girls and young women, something this “girl going nowhere” knows a thing or two about.
