Ashley McBryde Wings It When She Wins

Ashley McBryde Wings It When She Wins

Congrats to Ashley McBryde on her 3 CMA Award nominations for this year.

Ashley received nods in the categories of Song and Single Of The Year for her “One Night Standards.”

She also captured a nomination for Female Vocalist Of The Year

Ashley has won awards before, but she still thinks that having something prepared to say is bad luck. So, for her…winging it is Ashley’s style. “I think it’s bad luck to prepare and so I don’t. I prefer to wing it and I do know that my publicist prefers that I at least think it through because when I winged…I’ve said before that I’m a really nervous…like, spouter…so whatever is in my brain is something makes me nervous, I’m just going to spout that off.  I would be like pumpkins…pineapples – I might say the wrong thing.”

Well, have to wait until November 10th to see if Ashley wings it – that’s when the 55th Annual CMA Awards will be handed out in Nashville, and you can catch it live on ABC.

Of course, you don’t have to wait at all to hear Ashley’s new song with Carly Pearce.

The two powerhouse female vocalists have joined forces on “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.” Check out the lyric video here…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
