Ashley McBryde Reveals The Reason She And Miranda Lambert Aren’t Seated Together At The CMA Awards Anymore

These two definitely seem like double trouble, and I mean that in the best way possible.

I’ll personally never forget when Miranda Lambert rolled up to the 2020 CMA’s with her own fully-stocked cooler, where she also snuck in a flask just to ensure that she had everything she needed to really enjoy the evening.

A girl after my own heart, truly…

Ashley McBryde was also at Miranda’s table and was seen cutting up with her that night, and in a recent interview with Audacy’s Stars and Strings, Ashley revealed that they’re actually never sat together anymore at award shows… I don’t know if it’s because of that night, but it’s a cryin’ shame regardless.

She explained that many of the artists there are also friends, so they enjoy “trash talking” each other about who’s wining which award, but possibly no duo more than Ashley and Miranda. I’d die to be a fly on the wall for that…

Ashley also added “that’s why they don’t seat us together anymore,” but personally I think that would make it way more interesting:

“When you’re in a room full of people that do what you do, it’s nice to be able to sit down and talk trash about each other, because we do… Especially Miranda and I.

I think that’s why they don’t seat us together anymore – we give each other a hard time, but we’re always cheering each other on.

Especially, the women in Country music — we all are really good at challenging each other and showing up for each other at the same time.”

What I’d give to be seated at a show like this with Ashley and Miranda… those two seem like a helluva good time and I feel like it would be non-stop laughter the entire time, and certainly the most entertaining part of the evening.

And speaking of the CMA Awards, they’ll once again be hosted by Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning as the ceremony broadcasts live from Nashville tomorrow evening.
