Agree with rick_row, an excellent collection of jazzy country songs by the outstanding artist ... also love the ballad "Southern Babylon" (lyrics in "Quotes"). Her sense of humor makes her a wonderful performer, e.g. before one of her live performances, she joked:
My father is terminally ill, but he’s still with us. He was a preacher when I was growing up. Your life was shit and it was very hard. This is what a preacher's daughter looks like at 34 years old. He was a wonderful man and eh ... it was hard ... in the church where I grew up in ... The Baptist has revivals right where they scare the shit of you ... Church of Christ (where it's a sin to play an instrument) don't have that. They have meetings where they scare the shit of you. My dad was that guy.

Southern Babylon (P1 of 2)
Ashley McBryde

[Verse 1]
Starin' through a spiderweb where the windshield used to be
What's left of the dashboard, the smell of gasoline
I can just make out one neon light south off through the trees
My feet took over walkin' 'fore my mind caught up with me
When I walked in my tab was already open
My drink was poured and my cigarette was smokin'

[Chorus]
Somebody said "Hey girl, where you been? Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
"Got a band up there been dyin' to play a little 'Devil Went Down to Georgia'
"Rest that trav'lin' soul, looks like the road was long
"Welcome to Southern Babylon"

[Verse 2]
Had to pull myself together and ask to use the phone
The waitress smiled a wicked grin, it sent a chill right through my bone
I said "I need to call the tow-truck, some way to move along"
She said, "Who you wanna call now that you've been called home?"

Southern Babylon (P2 of 2)
Ashley McBryde

[Chorus]
She said "Hey girl, where you been? Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
"You got a band up there just dyin' to play a little 'Hotel California'
"And maybe it's not sinkin' in, but you'll learn to play along
"Honey, you been gone since you walked into Southern Babylon"

[Verse 3]
"I'm not supposed to be here, bartender don't you see?
"I took a gig down in Atlanta and the brakes gave out on me"
She said, "We know all about ya. It's a little bit too late"
She handed me a guitar and pointed to the flames

[Chorus]
"Hey girl, where you been? Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
"You got a band up there just dyin' to play a little 'Devil Went Down to Georgia'
"Rest that trav'lin' soul, looks like the road was long
"Welcome to Southern Babylon"
Southern Babylon
Welcome to Southern Babylon
Welcome home
