Ashley McBride on the CMAs, how she hasn’t spoken to Dolly Parton in years after the ’embarrassing’ microwave accident

Ashley McBride She details why she hasn’t spoken to Dolly Parton in 10 years.

McBride opened up to Fox News Digital about an incident at Barton’s Lake home, which was undergoing renovations at the time. According to McBride, she was caring for Barton when the bread bites caught fire in the microwave and started a small fire.

McBride managed to put out the flames, but not before it damaged the walls of one of Barton’s rooms, something she’s still embarrassed about.

“It had to do with some pieces of bread and the microwave turning on a fire and unplugging the microwave and turning it on so everything was fine, except for the newly wallpapered room, which I was there for babysitting which is all of McBride explaining why I was there. It’s embarrassing.” I’ve been talking to her ever since. She gave me the microwave, and that was the last conversation I had.”

Ashley McBride accepts the invitation of Grand Prix member Olly Aubrey from Garth Brooks

McBryde previously shared on the Rob + Holly podcast (via Parade) that someone she was babysitting had put an entire box of bread bites in the microwave, though she didn’t name who.

McBryde was nominated for 5 years CMA Awards Including, Song of the Year, Song of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Music Event of the Year, and Music Video of the Year. She says she is nervous and feels butterflies in her stomach about all the nominations.

“I think butterflies are a huge understatement,” McBride told Fox News Digital. “I think tension is a huge oversimplification. It’s the performance that you really have to do, and that’s what’s really important because you’re performing in front of your teammates, and they know when you screw it up, so I try to focus on that, so I’m not quite [nervous]. It’s always great to be there, it’s always great to be a candidate, but your performance on the CMA stage, is great.”

Last month, McBride surprised her good friend Garth Brooks during an interview with CBS Mornings.

McBride thought that she was invited on the program to talk about her latest album “Lindeville”, when Brooks suddenly appeared on the screens to officially invite her to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

McBride was happy to have Brooks be the one to break the news, saying “Garth has always been really nice to me. He never had to, I never asked him to be, he’s naturally a great guy,” remembering that he was really confused that morning On the talk show, saying she was “really ready to talk about the new record” when she “watched Brooks come on screen.”

To be invited to be a member of Grand Ole Opry It’s the best thing that can happen to anyone in country music, and I’m really happy and tickled that Garth raised his hand and said, ‘I’d like to be the guy who lets her know she’s part of this family,'” McBride said.

Being asked to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry is considered one of the highest achievements a country music artist can achieve. Becoming a member means having the opportunity to take part in any Opry show they want either as guests of one part or host of the night.

As a relatively new artist, McBride finds a great sense of encouragement and support among veteran stars of the country music industry, something she finds motivating and reliable.

Ashley McBride finds it heartening and validating when veterans of the country music industry complete her.
