Newcomer Ashley McBryde Makes Television Debut With “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega”


If you haven’t heard of country singer Ashley McBryde just yet, be prepared to be wowed. The Arkansas native showed her stuff Tuesday night (Jan. 23) on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” when she performed her current single, “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega.”

Dressed casually in her signature black leather vest, t-shirt and jeans, Ashley’s television debut was a powerful performance of a song that could be considered an anthem for those going through a rough time but still pushing ahead.

Here’s to the breakups that didn’t break us / The break down, wrong turn that takes ya / To a little dive bar in Dahlonega / Hear a song from a band that saves ya, man / It’s hittin’ rock bottom smoke ’em if you got ’em / Nothing’s going right/ Makin’ the best of the worst day kinda night,” she sings in the chorus.

Ashley is set to release her debut album, Girl Going Nowhere, which features “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega,” “American Scandal,” and the album’s title track, on March 30. The album’s title is no indication of the path that Ashely is forging—with a voice like that, this girl is going somewhere.
