CMT AOTY: Ashley McBryde is the Breakout Artist of the Year

Her Career So Far Is Not Bad for a Girl Goin' Nowhere

At the upcoming CMT Artists of the Year ceremony, Ashley McBryde will be honored with the coveted breakout artist of the year award.

It’s an award that is especially worthy of celebration, because it’s only been awarded two other times in the event’s 10-year history. Chris Stapleton won the award in 2015, and Kelsea Ballerini did so in 2016.

And like McBryde’s song says, it’s not bad for a girl goin’ nowhere. That song — the title track from her debut album — was released at the start of 2019.
