The news comes after fans noticed McBryde hasn’t been active on social media and canceled numerous tour dates, including a performance at Old Settlers Days Festival, 33rd Annual Rib Fest, and shows with Dierks Bentley. 

Last week, Bentley revealed that Elle King would be joining the Beers On Me Tour for a number of shows, however, he did not address McBryde’s absence. 

Dozens of fans took to the comment of the social media post to wish McBryde well.

“Love you Ashley! You deserve some time off, we all know you will come back and kick ass even harder! Our thoughts are with you! ❤️” one fan wrote, while another added, “Thoughts of love and concern coming to you from Arkansas. Hang in there, girl. Everything’s gonna be alright.”

“Glad she is taking the time she needs to make things better. Her fans will be here when she comes back,” another fan commented. 

“Take care of you girl! You’re an amazing artist both musically and vocally. Sending love and positive vibes your way,” added a concerned fan.

McBryde’s last public appearance was during the final night of CMA Fest, where she joined Elle King to sing “Ex’s And Oh’s” as well as an energy-filled rendition of a Charles Daniels’ hit.

According to her website, the “One Night Standards” singer’s next scheduled tour date is set for July 8 in Darien Center, New York with Dierks Bentley. At this time, it is unclear exactly when McBryde will return to the stage.
