Following the release of her critically-acclaimed album Never Will, Ashley McBryde joined ABC’s “Good Morning America” with a special live performance.
Joining via video conference, McBryde performed an acoustic version of Never Will’s opening track “Hang In There Girl”.
“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“
