Ashley McBryde‘s This Town Talks tour completed a 3-show stop at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN this past weekend.
Taking the stage of the mother church of country music, Ashley set the rules for what the fans could expect, “It’s a beautiful night for country music. Here’s what you’re gonna experience: some country songs, some rock songs; some happy ones, maybe some sad ones; some slow ones, some fast ones and some half-ass ones.” Then she added, “Let’s get on with it!”
On Thursday night, the first of the 3 shows, Ashley had a very special guest come out for a song – reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Eric Church!
Eric came out to join Ashley on a performance of the Allman Brothers Band’s classic, “Midnight Rider.”
Ashley also had the show’s opening act Lainey Wilson, return to the stage. As she bought her back out Ashley said, “How about a nice round of applause for our sister, we’re so proud to have her!”
The pair then sang “When Will I Be Loved” – which was made famous by Linda Ronstadt and The Everly Brothers.
At the end of the night Ashley remined the crowd, “You didn’t show up to the Ryman Auditorium tonight because we were going to be here, we showed up tonight because you were going to be here.”
Ashley’s This Town Talks tour will continue with dates through the rest of 2021, then into January 2022.
