Tough break for all those Ashley McBryde fans up there in Wisconsin…and for Ashley’s bus.

The country star was set to perform tonight at the Hodag Country Festival in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Along with McBryde, the four day festival features Hardy, Tanya Tucker, Tyler Hubbard, and many others on the lineup.

But unfortunately it seems that bus troubles are going to keep Ashley from making it to the show.

Ashley sent out a statement this morning that her bus “took a sh*t” last night after a show in Bay City, Michigan, so unfortunately she’s not going to be able to make it to Wisconsin:

“Hey y’all,

Our bus took a shit last night trying to leave Bay City. Our drivers have been up all night trying everything in the book but she’s still not starting up. We’re dead in the water.

We are gutted that we won’t be able to get to you at Hodag tonight. It’s one of our favorite festivals to play. 

Shoot us prayer or a chant or meditation, whatever your chosen method may be for sending good juju. I hope we can get back up to you soon.

Big big love from the Deadhorse boys and myself.


Tough break, especially for everybody who had gone to the festival just to see Ashley, but that’s showbiz. Sometimes a bus just takes a sh*t.
