About McBride & The RIde
While living in Texas and making frequent trips to Nashville, Terry McBride eventually caught the ear of MCA Executive, Tony Brown, who had the idea to start McBride & The Ride as a way to harness his voice. In 1989, with McBride on bass, Ray Herndon on guitar and Billy Thomas on drums McBride & The Ride was formed. The band released three albums with MCA Nashville, Burnin’ Up the Road, Sacred Ground, and Hurry Sundown. From these three albums, McBride & The Ride had multiple hits on the Billboard country charts including “Sacred Ground,” “Going Out of My Mind,” “Just One Night,” and “Love on the Loose, Heart on the Run.” By 1994, the original members of McBride & the Ride disbanded, while other members joined McBride. This new group was short lived though. McBride, Herndon and Thomas reunited in 2000 releasing Amarillo Sky on Dualtone Records in 2002 before disbanding again. Now, 18 years later, the original McBride & The Ride are back together and releasing new music once again.
About Terry McBride
As one of Nashville’s most established performers, Terry McBride has forged an impressive four-decade career in country music as an entertainer, songwriter and musician. Along the way he’s worked with legends like Brooks and Dunn and Delbert McClinton, written countless hit songs and participated in the country revolution in the ‘90s leading a hit-making band, yet he’s waited until now to emerge as a solo artist. His dynamic set list blends new material, familiar songs he’s written for others, and modern classics like “Sacred Ground,” the signature hit from his band McBride & The Ride. Growing up outside Austin, Texas, McBride always wanted to be in his father’s band, finally getting the coveted spot after auditioning once he graduated high school. The early ‘80s brought him to Austin where he secured a job as a bass player with Delbert McClinton. Eventually making his way to Nashville and forging a solid friendship with Ronnie Dunn, McBride is named as a co-writer on 13 of Brooks & Dunn’s singles, with an overall 25 cuts with the duo. This rich catalog includes the No. 1 smash, “Play Something Country,” as well as Brooks & Dunn’s two duets with Reba McEntire: “If You See Him/If You See Her” and “Cowgirls Don’t Cry.” He also placed songs with Garth Brooks, Easton Corbin, Josh Gracin, Cole Swindell, Gretchen Wilson and many others. In addition, McBride and Chris Stapleton co-wrote “Gonna Come Back as a Country Song” for Alan Jackson. After nearly 20 years away from the spotlight, McBride has spent the last few years returning to center stage. Inspired by the honky-tonks and dance halls of his youth, he released an EP in 2017 titled Hotels & Highways EP and just wrapped up a new album Rebels & Angels produced by Grammy winning songwriter/producer Luke Laird.
