This could be a big week for Ashley McBryde as she attends the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards as a double nominee on Sunday (2/5). Her fifth and sixth GRAMMY nominations are for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for her chart-topping duet “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Carly Pearce and for Best Country Album for her project Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville.
When she got the news a few weeks ago, she said in a statement, “I’m so proud to be able to share these nominations with so many friends and collaborators – for a duet we wrote and took to No. 1 with Carly and the entire cast of Lindeville, where we gave ourselves the opportunity to change the approach and make decisions based solely on serving the songs.” She added, “I’ve always said that recognition from the Recording Academy and joining the Grand Ole Opry are the two best things that could ever happen to you as an artist, so here I stand just in awe of this moment. It’s such an honor to be right here right now. And especially in such good company.”
Ashley has had a few significant years in country music. She will perform “Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville Live,” featuring the cast of collaborators and special guests performing songs at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on February 15 and 16.
