Ashley McBryde has joined forces with her collaborators Pillbox Patti and Caylee Hammack to release a chaotic music video for their hilarious tune, “Brenda Put Your Bra On.”
The video follows the hectic storyline as each artist perfectly portrays their familiar Lindeville character. This song serves as the opening track for McBryde’s critically-acclaimed, Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, which was produced by John Osborne and features performances from Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Aaron Raitiere, Patti, Hammack and Benjy Davis.
“As soon as we recorded this song, we knew we wanted to make a video for it,” McBryde shared in a press release. “It’s the start of the action in Lindeville. There were a lot of ways we could have shot the video, yet Reid had the idea to capture all the insanity and drama in one continuous take, which feels very in tune with the spirit of this entire project…,” she said before adding, “how Lindeville of us!”
The opening clip takes viewers through a brief scenic trip down the main streets of Lindeville. Then the setting is narrowed down to a trailer park where McBryde appears next to Patti and Hammack. Together, they sing along with the song as chaos ensues behind them, which in turn prompts a local news team to stop by and report on all the disturbances happening in what McBryde calls “the trailerhood.”
“Brenda, put your bra on, it’s just getting good / Shit’s goin’ down in the trailerhood / Pants ’round his ankles, still sportin’ wood / Brenda, put your bra on (bra on, bra on) / Brenda, put your bra on (bra on, bra on),” they sing in the chorus.
This playful song is among the full 13-track collection that takes listeners into the lives of different characters from small-town America who are brought in to help tell the stories of real-life experiences. In doing so, each song solidifies the true authenticity of Lindeville.
The inspiration for Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville stemmed from the songwriting of Nashville legend, Dennis Linde (“Goodbye Earl,” “Burning Love,” and “Bubba Shot the Jukebox.”). The songs seemed to naturally came together during a weeklong exercise in a rural cabin outside Nashville between McBryde, Raitiere, Hayford, Clark, Davis and Connie Harrington. While enjoying their relaxing trip, this new set of music eventually came to light, but the group of talented writers didn’t have the intention to ever record or release their work.
“A few years ago, Aaron Raitiere, Nicolette Hayford and I were on a write,” McBryde previously shared. “We wrote this song called ‘Blackout Betty,’ and I realized we had written previous songs called ‘Shut Up Sheila’ on Never Will and ‘Livin’ Next to Leroy’ on Girl Going Nowhere. Aaron had a song called ‘Jesus, Jenny,’ and I thought, ‘We should keep these characters together and give them a place to live!’
After a bit more consideration, the “One Night Standards” singer eventually made the decision to compile these songs together under one roof. So on September 30th, she released the project complete with its many quirky characters that hold complicated narratives, which are so compelling at the same time. This creative thought process makes it almost impossible to turn away before the final track.
McBryde’s latest collection marks her third consecutive GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album, following Warner Music Nashville’s Girl Going Nowhere in 2018 and Never Will in 2020. This year, the Arkansas native is also GRAMMY nominated for No. 1 duet and co-write with Carly Pearce, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.”
Beginning January 26, Ashley McBryde will hit the road with Wynonna Judd for the northeast shows of The Judds: The Final Tour. She’ll join the trek for performances in Hershey, PA, Bridgeport, CT, and Worcester, MA.
Then, she will return to the historic Ryman Auditorium for Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville Live on February 15 and 16. This experience will feature a select cast of collaborators and special guests performing songs from her critically acclaimed album.
