Reigning ACM New Female Artist of the Year, CMA New Artist of the Year and CMT Breakout Artist of the Year Ashley McBryde is set to release her sophomore album Never Will, the follow-up to her GRAMMY-nominated debut Girl Going Nowhere on April 3 via Warner Music Nashville.
“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.”
Never Will, produced by Jay Joyce, has 11 tracks including lead single “One Night Standards.”
Later this month, McBryde is set to perform at MusiCares honoring Aerosmith January 24 in Los Angeles and kicks off her One Night Standards Tour in Birmingham, Ala. on January 30.
