In her first few years in Nashville, McBryde won the Country Showdown in 2009 and 2010.

She continued touring behind her music, and eventually released the EP Jalopies & Expensive Guitars in 2016. One year later, Warner Bros. Records in Nashville released her single 'A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega'.

McBryde co-wrote the song with Nicolette Hayford and Jesse Rice. It's about having the worst day but making the best of it. The song garnered critical attention, including from The New York Times, which named it as one of the 54 Best Songs of the Year.

The single ended up on McBryde's 2018 debut studio album Girl Going Nowhere. Thanks to the popularity and critical success of the album, McBryde was named Female Vocalist of the Year at the ACMs and New Artist of the Year at the CMAs in 2019. Her debut album also earned a Best Country Album nomination at the Grammys.

In 2020, she released her sophomore album Never Will. Once again, it was nominated for Best Country Album at the Grammys.
