COUNTRY MULTI-TALENT TERRY McBRIDE RELEASES FIRST EVER SOLO ALBUM REBELS & ANGELS FEATURING PATTY LOVELESS AND DELBERT McCLINTON
Songwriters Include Chris Stapleton, Luke Laird, Brice Long, Marv Green, Dale McBride and Matt Rogers
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 23, 2020) ⎼ Terry McBride, a true country music multi-talent, released his first-ever full-length solo effort today, Rebels & Angels. McBride, having co-written nine of the ten tracks, seamlessly blends traditional country sounds and themes into an updated manner that competes perfectly with the commercial standards of today. The project was produced by acclaimed producer and songwriter, Luke Laird and released by Creative Nation / TMc Records. Listen to Rebels & Angels here.
The songwriting credits on this album are exceptional, as the album’s title track proves. “Rebels and Angels,” a duet with the incomparable Patty Loveless and written with Chris Stapleton, is just one of the many incredible songs on this album. McBride also honors his father, Dale McBride, with a cover of “Corpus Christi Wind” as well as Delbert McClinton, the man that started his touring career, with a feature on a true story song, “Went For One.” The first single, “Callin’ All Hearts” is his first release to Texas Regional Radio where it is already seeing great early reaction.
“This album was 30 years in the making. It’s a piece of my past and who I am today as a singer and songwriter, combined with artists I admire and songwriters I respect. It is friends and talented musicians all coming together to create songs and sounds that reflect the artist I’ve always wanted to be – a country boy from Texas continuing to live out his dreams,” says McBride.
“When a songwriter like Terry McBride calls for one’s attention, it might be best to heed those exclamations and listen, especially if the reason in question revolves around some solid new music… – Kira Grunenberg, American Songwriter
Robert K. Oerman says of “Rebels & Angels,” “drenched in steel and twin fiddles, this is a hillbilly jewel. My heart warmed in my chest with every note of this mini masterpiece. Duet of the Year.” – Music Row Magazine
“Killer country without a sippy cup in sight.” – Midwest Record
Of “Callin’ All Hearts,” Billy Dukes says, “steel guitar and fiddle saw across the pure country ballad. Loveless was the singer’s only choice for a duet partner on the song. Her performance is a cherry on top of an already fine songwriting dessert. – Taste of Country
In his over four decade career, McBride has penned some of the most beloved and quintessential country songs in the genre’s history, led his own 90’s hit-making band, McBride & The Ride, and played in touring bands with some of the biggest names in music. There is no doubt that McBride has become a living standard in the country music community.

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.
