Whiskey Riff Song of the Week: “One Night Standards” by Ashley McBryde

“We had to walk away from it to give it a second to breathe,” Ashley said regarding the song. “When we got back in a room, this time Shane [McAnally] was with us and I joked, ‘You know, hotel rooms…they only have one night stand for a reason. They’re one night stand-ers.’ Shane and Nic’s [Nicolette Hayford] eyes lit up, ‘Did you just say one night standards?’”


It’s just a room key, you ain’t gotta lie to me
Can’t you just use me, like I’m using you
How it goes is, the bar closes
There’s no king bed covered in roses
Just a room, without a view
I don’t want a number you ain’t gonna answer
Let’s just stick to the one night standards
