“Maybe it was Memphis…maybe it was southern summer nights…”
“Maybe It Was Memphis” is a Pam Tillis classic. The hit single follows the story of a woman recalling a love she met in Memphis, Tennessee, and the fond love story quickly captured the hearts of country music fans, making it a staple for 90’s country lovers.
Over the years, many artists have put their spin on the 1991 single, and most recently, Ashley McBryde stepped out, delivering a killer cover of it. McBryde took the stage for a CMT Summer Session, belting out the lyrics.
Ashley McBryde always sounds great, but something about the combination of the serene lake background, a classic song, and the intimate crowd just makes this cover hit different.
Joined by her full band, the performance has a studio-sounding effect, and MyBryde delivers each lyric with ease. She nails the harder-hitting notes with the signature Ashley McBryde belt that we all know and love.
“Maybe it was southern summer nights… maybe it was Ashely McBryde,” but something about this cover sure feels right.
Check it out.
