When I hear about talented artists coming to the state, I can not help but freak out a little bit inside. So when I heard about this Lady Boss making her way to Montana, I was super pumped up that she would be stopping in Bozeman!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR OCTOBER 1ST!

The Elm has quickly become a Bozeman favorite for concerts and events. Located just off of 7th and Short, the convenient location makes having a blast even easier.

Ashley McBryde is one of country music's female rising stars. She was nominated for Best Country Album in 2021 and has joined some of the best on stage. The first time I saw her, she was opening for Miranda Lambert, and let me just say, WOW.

Fun fact: there is a presale code for Thursday through this link here. Check it out, because it will go quickly and it is limited.

McBryde started out playing in biker bars and it clearly was the right path. Nominated for and winning multiple awards, McBryde has teamed up with Carly Pearce for her latest hit, "Never Wanted To Be That Girl". Shooting its way up to the top of the playlist, the song is more relatable than expected.

McBryde will be at The ELM on October 1st. Tickets officially go on sale on Friday, March 4th at 10 am. You can get all your ticket information here and any information you may want about The Elm.
