Ashley McBryde released her excellent debut album, Girl Going Nowhere, back in 2018, and we named her one of the Best New Artists to come out of that year. A couple months ago, she was named the New Artist Of The Year at the Country Music Awards, and she’s gearing up to release her sophomore album this spring.
A new single from it, “One Night Standards,” came out last fall, and today she’s sharing another one called “Martha Divine,” a roiling country revenge tale with a little twist. Instead of being embroiled in a love affair herself, McBryde sets her sights on her father’s mistress. “Martha Divine/ You put your hands on the wrong damn man this time,” McBryde sings in the chorus. “Jezebel, you’re bound for hell/ But evidently the devil’s busy so I moved you up in line.” Listen below.
