The Highwomen Officially Announce New Single, “Crowded Table” [Listen]

The Highwomen—Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, Maren Morris and Natalie Hemby—will officially ship new single, “Crowded Table,” to country radio on May 26.

Penned Natalie, Brandi and Lori McKenna, “Crowded Table” is featured on the foursome’s 2019 self-titled debut album, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

“‘Crowded Table’ has taught me a lot,” says Brandi. “It’s taught me that we can go out in the world and be who we need to be to help the world do the best that we can while we are here. But at the end of the day, there’s too many things keeping up from getting along with other people—keeping us from getting along with our families over the dinner table. At the end of the day, we have to find a way to come to the table with each other and break bread. Hearing the audience sing that song back to me has become probably one of the most healing parts of my night.”

The Highwomen dropped a new video for “Crowded Table” on April 30. Filmed throughout the making of their debut album, the video features appearances by Brandi, Amanda, Maren and Natalie, as well as other artists who contributed to the album, including Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, Yola, Tim Hanseroth, Phil Hanseroth, producer Dave Cobb and more.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
