Ashley McBryde Has New Thanksgiving Standards

Ashley McBryde Has New Thanksgiving Standards

Everyone is adapting their holiday plans this year, including Ashley McBryde. To keep her family safe, she and her siblings have laid out a holiday schedule for visiting their parents “Normally I would be at home, for every holiday, but my parents are no spring chickens…so, I’m trying to make sure that everybody is as safe as possible. So, my family and I, we’re gonna do holidays in shifts! We’ll be tested, and then I’ll get to go be with mom and pop, and then my brother or my sister can come a day or so later as long as everybody is making sure we’re keeping mom and dad safe”

Now, when she does get home, what will be her favorite Thanksgiving menu item? Ashley states “Mashed potatoes, mashed potatoes, mashed potatoes…with gravy? Even better! But, mashed potatoes.” We think she likes mashed potatoes.

Here’s hoping your holidays are nothing like the story line in Ashley’s latest song “Martha Divine”…

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
