Ashley McBryde Announces New Album ‘The Devil I Know’

Grammy-winner Ashley McBryde has announced a new album, With The Devil I Know, which is due to drop on September 8th via Warner Music Nashville.

“When it was time to put together The Devil I Know, my band and I did what we always do: got together in the purple building in East Nashville, played through a bunch of songs and discussed where we wanted it to go,” said McBryde. “We decided to take all the things that people tend to give us a hard time for and turn it up.”

She continued, “‘Y’all are too country.’ We leaned into that – more country it is. ‘Y’all are awfully rock leaning for a country artist.’ Is that so? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet. ‘Last thing y’all need is another tender, finger pickin’ song.’ Oh? Tender makes you uneasy, cowboy? I hear you. Let’s see how much more tender we can be. We listened to all those opinions and said, ‘I hear you. I understand what you’re saying.’ But sadly, there’s no room on the record for your opinion. We’ll do what we want.”

Along with the announcement, McBryde dropped a new single, “Learned To Lie.”

“‘Learned to Lie’ was a hard one. I wrote it with Sean McConnell and Nicolette Hayford,” McBryde said. “After it was written, I called my mom to let her know that I had told a little bit more of our story as a family. I said, ‘It’s going to be hard to hear, but none of it is untrue.'”

She previously released the lead single “Light On In The Kitchen” in February and the title track in April.

McBryde’s last studio album, Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, dropped in 2022.
