Ashley McBryde on giving herself time to decompress and “absorb that much love” from fans + peers

For Ashley McBryde, taking in the support she’s received from her peers and fans is a gradual process.

The singer, who recently released her new album, The Devil I Know, says being showered with an “overwhelming” amount of love can be difficult at times.

“It's hard to process that much love coming at you at one time, especially when you're in an industry that requires a lot of competitiveness and a lot of comparison and things like that where you have to prove yourself all the time and earn your spot all the time,” shares Ashley.

“And then with something like this, you release a record, everybody's been dying for it and they go, ‘We love it.’ You kind of go, ‘Oh, I'm unsure how to feel in this moment,'” she says.

So instead of being overwhelmed or shutting out those affirmations, Ashley’s learned that there’s beauty in giving herself grace as she slowly soaks up those positive words. 

“You just give yourself a little bit of time to decompress and feel [and] absorb that much love. It takes a minute,” says Ashley.

Ashley is currently approaching the top 20 of the country charts with “Light on in the Kitchen.”

Dalton Dover returns home for “Never Giving Up On That” video

Dalton Dover has released the music video for his debut single, “Never Giving Up On That.”

Directed by Tristan Cusick and filmed near Dalton’s hometown in Rome, Georgia, the video features Dalton brooding over a breakup in a bar, church, the woods and more, before taking the stage to perform his soaring number.

“Every scene in the video is just somewhere that means something to me, places where I grew up,” Dalton tells CMT. “The people in the video are some of the most important people in my life.”

“Growing up, you're playing all these small venues around here. Little did you know 12 years later, you'd sign a record deal and film your first music video at the same exact place, the same bar that you played one of your first hometown shows in,” he adds.

“Never Giving Up On That” serves as the title track of Dalton’s new eight-song project. Out now via Mercury Records/UMG Nashville, the collection also includes a tender cover of Alicia Key‘s “If I Ain’t Got You.”

Dalton is currently in the top 40 of the country charts with “Never Giving Up On That.”

Dolly Parton on why she recorded 30 songs for 'Rockstar': “I want them to last many lifetimes”

Dolly Parton‘s star-studded rock album, Rockstar, is set to arrive November 17.

The collaborative project boasts 30 songs, 21 of which are covers of rock classics and nine that are new originals. 

So, why did Dolly decide to stack her debut rock album with a whopping 30 tracks? Well, it was both a passion-driven and pragmatic move for the 77-year-old music icon.

“Somebody said, ‘Why in hell did you do so many songs?’ I said, ‘Well, I want them to last many lifetimes,'” shares Dolly.

“I just figured I’d never do another rock album and I just had so many favorite songs. I thought, ‘Well, I’m just going to do it.’ And so I did,” says the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member. 

“I figured down through the years after I’m long gone, they can start doing little compilation CDs and have different people on,” Dolly adds.

Rockstar – which features Chris StapletonEmmylou HarrisSheryl CrowMiley CyrusKid Rock and more – is available for preorder now.
