Ashley McBryde Thinks It’s OK to be Uncomfortable for 3 and Half Minutes

ACM Female Vocalist of the Year nominee Ashley McBryde thinks that it’s OK to be a little uncomfortable when you listen to her ACM nominated Song of the Year “One Night Standards” from her ACM nominated Album of the Year, Never Will.

Ashley says, “’One Night Standards’ was an exercise in honesty…and it can be a little uncomfortable at times, but I think almost any of us, could stand to be a little uncomfortable for at least 3 and half minutes – especially when it comes to honesty.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
