For a girl that was supposedly going nowhere, Ashley McBryde has been taking her music everywhere over the past year. Since the release of her major label debut Girl Going Nowhere in March, the artist that NPR called “one of the genre’s most important new voices” has been all over the USA on her first-ever headlining The Girl Going Nowhere Tour and recently made a return trip across the pond to play a few select dates with Luke Combs in the U.K, having been named one of Rolling Stone’s highlights of C2C Festival in London earlier in the year.

McBryde closed her first full tour of the UK last night (10th Oct) with a sold-out headline show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall, having performed on “Later…with Jools Holland” this week – the live show featuring “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” aired on Tuesday’s (9th Oct) “Later Live” show on BBC2, with another performance on the full Saturday night programme (13th Oct).

In addition to the appearance on “Later…”, McBryde’s busy media schedule brought her to the sofa of BBC Breakfast (1st Oct) and recording interviews with some of the most influential and respected voices in country music broadcasting, including Chris Country Radio, Ricky Ross, and ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, who described ‘Girl Goin’ Nowhere” as “a wonderful song,” giving listeners a preview of the full session which will air early next year, Following the successful run in the U.K., she will return to the U.S. for further tour dates.
