Having just dropped her new album, Elsebound, Memphis-based country artist Ashley McBryde hit the road for a Southeast tour. McBryde co-wrote every song on Elsebound, from the catchy "Break It Fast" to the gospel-turned-rocker of "Holy Water" (which opens with an earnest chorus of "Amazing Grace"). "Put her on a stage and you will see and hear that she is the nicest bad girl you’ve ever met," says her bio. McBryde will be on two Asheville stages: the Root Bar on Wednesday, July 13 (9 p.m.) and Westville Pub on Thursday, July 14 (9:30 p.m., free). ashleymcbryde.com.
