As a longtime fan of Ariat, McBryde and the brand have partnered officially since 2018. “It has been exciting to watch Ashley’s career grow over the past five years, and we couldn’t be more proud to support her headlining tour,” said Susan Alcala, VP Partnership Marketing at Ariat. Last week, McBryde released “Cool Little Bars,” a song she wrote with Lainey Wilson and Trick Savage, that pays tribute to the dive bars, holes in the wall and often locals-only establishments that shaped the early days of her career, with American Songwriter calling it a “catchy ditty that features the presence of harmonica to add a nostalgic feel.” Climbing the charts in the top 25, “Light On In The Kitchen” earned placement on Rolling Stone’s all-genre “Best Songs of 2023 So Far,” praising the lead single as a “gorgeous tribute to the women who helped shape her” with “luminous guitars and McBryde’s tender delivery,” while “Learned To Lie” landed on Rolling Stone’s “Best Country Songs of 2023 So Far” noting, “Ashley McBryde tracks the lineage of an inveterate liar with clinical precision…her sneakily brilliant writing will floor you by song’s end.” Title track “The Devil I Know” was named as one of Vulture’s “Best Songs of 2023 (So Far),” boasting, “McBryde still hasn’t lost her edge, showing off the country-rock chops that, if this industry were fair, would lead her to play this song in arenas just like fellow mavericks Chris Stapleton and Eric Church,” while album opener “Made For This” is a “guitar-heavy song accented by fast-paced drums has a rock vibe,” observes American Songwriter.
