Ashley McBryde-The Devil I Know Tour -- TICKETS ON SALE NOW


With three nominations from the Country Music Association, including her fourth
consecutive nod for Female Vocalist of the Year and third-for-three Album of the Year
nominations, GRAMMY winner and Grand Ole Opry member Ashley
McBryde releases The Devil I Know via Warner Music Nashville, featuring 11 tracks all
cowritten by the Arkansas native.
“We can’t wait for you to dig into these songs that found a home on The Devil I Know,”
shares McBryde. “Every decision that went into it had to pass a gut check, and I’m
proud to say this entire record does just that. Thanks for coming along with us on this
journey – we’re so glad you’re here.”
Named as one of the most highly anticipated albums by both Los Angeles
Times and Vulture, with the former calling her “one of Nashville’s most reliable and

sophisticated songwriters,” The Devil I Know finds McBryde honing her calling card
even further, as American Songwriter boasts, “Her lyrics can be heartrendingly tender
one song, then unflinchingly biting the next.”
“More ruminative than crazed, the Saddle, Arkansas-born ragged rock/country
songwriter delivers an exhale of acceptance that the chase is as much the reward as
superstardom. Rather than raging against what’s not happening, she delivers a clear-
eyed celebration of how alive being in the moment feels,” shares HITS, as Garden &
Gun notes, “The Devil I Know…could—and should—catapult her from being one of
Music City’s favorite songwriters to its newest arena headliner. The album’s songs are
infectious and assured.”
 Lead single “Light On In The Kitchen” continues to climb the charts in the top 25 while
earning a nomination for CMA Music Video of the Year. Directed by Reid Long and
captured in a single take, American Songwriter observes, “Ashley McBryde showcases
her storytelling soul,” while Rolling Stone praises of the track, “it’s a delicate ballad that
feels ready for radio and the Grand Ole Opry stage but comes with mountains of good
advice,” landing on their all-genre “The Best Songs of 2023 So Far.”
Opening track “Made For This” contains “hard-edged truths about the brutality of the
life of a touring musician,” shares Billboard, and “Learned To Lie” earned a spot
on Rolling Stone’s “The 20 Best Country Songs of 2023 So Far,” noting “McBryde tracks
the lineage of an inveterate liar with clinical precision…her sneakily brilliant writing will
floor you by song’s end.”
Recognized by Vulture as one of “The Best Songs of 2023 (So Far),” title track “The
Devil I Know” is “the latest reminder of how special a mainstream country star McBryde
is,” and asserts “McBryde still hasn’t lost her edge, showing off the country-rock chops
that, if this industry were fair, would lead her to play this song in arenas just like fellow
mavericks Chris Stapleton and Eric Church.”
 Written with Trick Savage and Lainey Wilson, “Cool Little Bars” is a “wonderful ode to
the dirty little dives we love,” sums up  MusicRow , praising, “As if her singing and the
songwriting weren’t brilliant enough, this has the most marvelous, crunchy, rocking-
acoustic track on God’s green earth.”
With two wins and 15 career nominations from the Country Music Association, McBryde
is also up for Album of the Year for Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, produced
by John Osborne. A collaborative effort, the project features performances
from Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Aaron Raitiere, Pillbox Patti, Caylee
Hammack and Benjy Davis and earned a title as one of the best albums of the year
from NPR (the only country album), Rolling Stone (all-genre and Country), Billboard (all-
genre and Country), Variety and Stereogum, among many more.
