Ashley McBryde has returned to the stage for the first time in two weeks, following her announcement to take some time off for undisclosed personal reasons.

On June 29, McBryde’s Facebook page issued a statement saying, “Thank you all for the well wishes. For personal reasons, Ashley will not be performing for a few weeks. We will share more details regarding when she will be back on the road as soon as they become available, but she wants you to know that she loves you all and misses you and will be back soon stronger than ever! – Team Ashley.”

On the day of announcement, according to McBryde's official website, her next show was set for July 14 in Charleston, South Carolina, as part of Dierks Bentley’s Beers on Me Tour.

On Wednesday, June 13, she updated her fans via social media.  

“I’ll be back on the road this weekend and am so excited to see you all!” she captioned. “I didn’t anticipate having to take time away. However, it was something that could not be avoided. More on that someday. Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. Now back to business, a little spackle, a little sparkle… see you this weekend Trybe!”

McBryde was previously forced to postpone several performances in September 2021 after she fell off a horse while riding before a show in Montana and suffered a concussion.

"When I landed, I assumed I had hit my shoulder as did the rest of the party. Sadly, I had landed on my head," McBryde wrote at the time. "After a trip to the ER staples to close my scalp up, the cat scan revealed a pretty harsh concussion. You know me, I wouldn’t postpone a show for bumps and bruises. But at the moment I am not able to walk without assistance… As soon as I am able to walk across a stage again, this is exactly where you’ll find me.”

McBryde's most recent album, the Grammy-nominated Never Will, came out in 2020. Never Wanted to Be That Girl, her collaboration with Carly Pearce, peaked at #11 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart. It currently sits at #40 after 30 weeks on the chart.
