You might know her as the girl going nowhere, but it’s pretty obvious that ain’t the truth anymore.

Ashley McBryde recently sold out three consecutive nights at the legendary Ryman Theater, further proving her star power.

People Magazine shared some behind the scenes pictures as well as commentary from Ashley reflecting on the three nights of great performances and surprise guests, which included Lainey Wilson, Eric Church, Terri Clark, and Chris Harris.

She detailed her full circle moment with Eric Church:

“Eric Church was one of the first artists to bring me up on stage in 2017 to perform my song “Bible and a 44.”

It only felt right to ask him to join us at the Ryman, and I still can’t believe he said yes. We surprised the fans with “Midnight Rider.”

After this song, I could see him out of the corner of my eye watching from sidestage. They don’t make ’em any better than him.”

She was also awarded with a plaque for “One Night Standards” going platinum, one of only 20 songs over the last 2 years to do so.

I’m such a huge fan of Ashley, so seeing her finally start to get the success and recognition that’s long overdue makes me insanely happy.

I’m seeing her open for Luke Combs in Orlando this October and I absolutely cannot wait. It’s gonna be a hell of a show.
