Following an invitation to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry, Ashley McBryde invites you to the revered Ryman Auditorium to experience Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, featuring the cast of collaborators and special guests performing songs from her critically acclaimed album, February 15 and 16.
“In a perfect world, it needs to be a live show,” McBryde shared with AP upon album’s release. “In my heart, it would be at the Ryman, done in the style of a community theater, kind of Prairie Home Companion it. To deliver those performances in that way I think would be really beautiful and a lot of fun.”
Paying homage to the radio programs of yesteryear, McBryde confirms Stereogum’s observation of the ringleader: “Here’s someone who loves and respects the age-old storytelling traditions of country music and who wants to find strange new ways to honor those traditions.”
Developing Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville for the stage won’t require too much stretching, as Variety notes, “It sounds like the beginnings of a solid country music musical,” while Saving Country Music asserts, “You could consider Lindeville just as much like a stage production as you could a studio album, with the cast of characters unfolding before you as the songs transpire.”
Cited by NPR as a “glorious detour into downhome character studies,” the Arkansas-native and her collaborators leaned all the way in on Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, garnering applause from critics upon its debut.
Produced by John Osborne, Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville includes performances from McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Aaron Raitiere, Pillbox Patti, Caylee Hammack and Benjy Davis, with NPR calling it “a mischievous, and mightily pleasing, departure from the prescribed progression of a mainstream country career,” while AP praises, “McBryde and crew created detail-rich storylines with a John Prine level of empathy and compassion.”
