One rising Arkansas music superstar is getting another accolade this month.
Arkansas native Ashley McBryde will be crowned the “Breakout Artist of the Year” at the annual CMT Artists of the Year ceremony. The CMT ceremony, now in its 10thyear, will be held Oct.16 in Nashville.
Past recipients of the CMT Break Artist of the Year award include Chris Stapleton and Kelsea Ballerini.
I’m so excited to share the same stage as this fantastic group of artists and am honored to be there to celebrate alongside them!” McBryde said in a statement.
This is the latest award in McBryde’s relatively short career. McBryde’s video for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” won the “Breakthrough Video of the Year” from the CMT Music Awards. She has been named the “New Female Vocalist of the Year” at the ACM Awards and was also nominated for “Female Vocalist of the Year.” Her album “Girl Going Nowhere” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Album.
