She’s already won the ACM in the Best New Female Vocalist, so Ashley McBryde’s profile is getting quite a bit bigger.  She appeared in an emotional segment on CBS This Morning yesterday to also mark her 2019 Daytime Emmy Awards nomination for her performances of “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” and “American Scandal.”

An emotional McBryde said on CBS, “If anybody has told you to not passionately pursue what sets your soul on fire, they are wrong. Don’t you dare give up, and if you do, you better not let me find out about it.”

For the profile, she was joined by Nicolette Hayford, co-writer of “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega” and “Livin’ Next to Leroy.”

Ashley got word last week that she was nominated for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program for the songs, which both appear on her GRAMMY-nominated debut album, Girl Going Nowhere.

The 46th annual Daytime Emmy Awards take place Sunday, May 5, in Los Angeles, California.

Following performances in the U.K. and Australia last month, McBryde will now prep for a summer filled with stops at some of the most popular festivals, including Windy City Smokeout, Country Thunder and the CMA Music Festival in Nashville.

She is also set to make a return to the Grand Ole Opry on April 20.
