MacBryde announces April release date
Sunday, January 17, 2010
– Ashley McBryde will release her sophomore album, "Never Will", the follow-up to "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 said. "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."
The disc contains 11 tracks including lead single "One Night Standards."
The track listing is:
1. Hang In There Girl (Ashley McBryde, Jeremy Bussey)
2. One Night Standards (Ashley McBryde, Nicolette Hayford, Shane McAnally)
3. Shut Up Sheila (Nicolette Hayford, Charles Chisholm)
4. First Thing I Reach For (Ashley McBryde, Randall Clay, Mick Holland)
5. Voodoo Doll (Ashley McBryde, Nicolette Hayford, Brandy Clark, Connie Harrington, Jake Mitchell, Aaron Raitiere)
6. Sparrow (Ashley McBryde, Nicolette Hayford, Brandy Clark, Connie Harrington, Jake Mitchell, Aaron Raitiere)
7. Martha Divine (Ashley McBryde, Jeremy Spillman)
8. Velvet Red (Ashley McBryde, Patrick Savage, Daniel Smalley)
9. Stone (Ashley McBryde, Nicolette Hayford)
10. Never Will (Ashley McBryde, Chris Harris, Blue Foley, Matt Helmkamp, Christian Sancho, Victor Quinn Hill)

CD reviews for Ashley McBryde
One of Ashley McBryde's breakthrough hits was the autobiographical "Girl Goin' Nowhere," about people who had cruelly cast doubts upon her music career aspirations. Now, in an act akin to paying it forward, McBryde opens with "Hang In There Girl," which admonishes a woman to keep on fighting the good fight because - eventually - it gets better. These 11 new songs prove McBryde is still going places, fascinating places.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
