Country News

Ashley McBryde has announced that her forthcoming album titled The Devil I Know will be released on September 8. And she says that she did it her way.

Ashley said in a statement, “When it was time to put together The Devil I Know, my band and I did what we always do: got together in the purple building in East Nashville, played through a bunch of songs, and discussed where we wanted it to go. We decided to take all the things that people tend to give us a hard time for and turn it up.”

She continued, “‘Y’all are too country.’ We leaned into that – more country it is. ‘Y’all are awfully rock-leaning for a country artist.’ Is that so? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. ‘Last thing y’all need is another tender, finger-pickin’ song.’ Oh? Tender makes you uneasy, cowboy? I hear you. Let’s see how much more tender we can be. We listened to all those opinions and said, ‘I hear you. I understand what you’re saying.’ But sadly, there’s no room on the record for your opinion. We’ll do what we want.”

McBryde also released a new song from the project called “Learned To Lie.” She said of the new song, “‘Learned to Lie’ was a hard one; I wrote it with Sean McConnell and Nicolette Hayford. After it was written, I called my mom to let her know that I had told a little bit more of our story as a family. I said, ‘It’s going to be hard to hear, but none of it is untrue.'”
