Following the release of her critically-acclaimed album Never Will, ACM New Female Artist, CMA New Artist of the Year and three-time GRAMMY nominee Ashley McBryde joined ABC’s Good Morning America with a special live performance — an acoustic performance of the record’s opening track “Hang In There Girl.”
Prior to her performance, McBryde shared background on the song.
“It’s actually a true story, verbatim. I did see a young girl, about 15 years old on the side of the road when I was driving through Watertown. She looked pretty frustrated and she reminded me a lot of myself when I was growing up. I grew up in a really rural area, and I’m proud of how I was raised. But there were times when I was in my teens, that I was frustrated and just couldn’t wait to get out of there. I really wished I could have stopped and tell her, ‘Hang in there, you’re really going to look back on this fondly.’
“Especially with everything that’s happening in the world this week, ‘Hang In There’ is something we’re all having to tell ourselves and each other,” she continued.
McBryde will host her Trybe Virtual Fan Club Party this Friday, June 5 at 2:30 p.m. CT. All members of the fan club can participate in the party on The Trybe website and premium members can enter to win a virtual Meet & Greet. Register for The Trybe for free HERE.
