Ashley McBryde’s Rise to Fame
Reaching the level of successful country artists like George Strait, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, and Alan Jackson is not that easy. It was not also easy for Ashley as she had to release her first and second album without the help of major record studios. Her first two albums were self-released and she did her own promotion.
She found her first taste of success when Eric Church invited her onstage and perform with him. After that, the singer released a song called “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega” which caught the attention of Rolling Stone as they named it one of the best country songs of 2017. She is now signed to a major recording label and then she released her album which was nominated at the Grammy’s.
