Ashley McBryde recently released a new single, “Made For This,” from her upcoming album, The Devil I Know, close on the heels of announcing the record.
McBryde and Travis Meadows co-wrote “Made For This.” The song’s chorus captures the unglamorous side of road life.
“Cause you turn it on when the big man calls/’Cause he ain’t gonna call you twice/And it’s calling home for a telephone goodnight kiss/Ya gotta be made for this,” McBryde asserts at the end of the chorus.
“I was still touring in a van and he was using his truck, so we definitely had touring and the life of musicians top of mind,” McBryde says about the time they were writing the song. “But this song reaches beyond that. It’s not just touring musicians and bands and crews who are on the road 200+ days a year who are ‘calling home for a telephone goodnight kiss.'”
“It’s also members of our military, our truck drivers and those that work long or odd hours sacrificing time with their family. We’re lucky we’re made for this,” she added.
The chorus captures the unglamorous side of road life, with McBryde singing about traveling stuck in a truck, a bathroom stall that doubles as a dressing room while relying on Adderall and alcohol to help get her through the grind.
The Devil I Know‘s lead single, “Light On In The Kitchen,” is climbing the charts and approaching the top 25 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart.
The Devil I Know is due out on September 8th via Warner Music Nashville.
