A new Ashley McBryde era is seemingly upon us.
She just announced a new tune called “Light On In The Kitchen” is dropping this Friday, along with a teaser of it on Instagram, saying that, as she’s gotten older, the little things seems to mean more and more:
“I’m noticing now how big a difference such seemingly small comforts have made in my life.
Things as simple as ‘sure honey’ from a voice I need to hear it from, or just walking into the kitchen for a drink in the middle of the night.
How comforting that warm glow has always been… Leave a light on y’all. Big hugs. New song out Friday. Pre-save / pre-add it now at the link in bio/stories. #LightOnInTheKitchen.”
The teaser featured a phone call between Ashley and her mom, where Ashley tells her she’s had a rough day and says she needs to come home.
Like any good Southern mama, Ashley’s mom tells her to come on and that she’ll leave the light on in the kitchen for her when she comes in:
Needless to say, I’m beyond excited that we have new music on the way from Miss McBryde, who released her last solo studio album Never Will in 2020.
She most recently released a fantastic collaborative concept project called Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville last September, which was nominated for a Grammy at this years award show in the Best Country Album category (though Willie Nelson ultimately took home the award).
Ashley is also fresh off her first Grammy win for Best Country Duo/Group Performance with Carly Pearce for their duet “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” and in the post-win press rounds, Ashley also spilled that new music is already coming soon:
“It’s time to release new music, And I know we just released ‘Lindeville’ back in September, but it’s time.
So there’s a new single coming at the end of February. More music right, ‘cuz what have I done for you lately? Let’s do some more stuff.”
And hopefully, this is all just the beginning of much more to come…
Here’s Ashley’s post-Grammy interview where she talks about the new stuff coming soon:
