Watch Ashley McBryde’s Touching Rendition of “Amazing Grace” for Easter

Ashley McBryde visited Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on April 10 to record a special rendition of “Amazing Grace” for release on Easter Sunday.

The virtually empty “Mother Church of Country Music” was an apropos setting for the hymn, which Ashley noted she “wouldn’t normally sing,” but felt compelled to share under the circumstances.

Ashley included a short message with the release, which you can read below:

“I had the opportunity to honor all we’ve lost at the Ryman this week and I tried my best . . . 7 times in a row. I really tried . . .

“Some things just can’t be healed. Some losses can’t be reconciled and some wounds will never heal. Sometimes we don’t get closure the way we want to. All we can do is honor our predecessors and hope that we touch the hem of heaven sometime in our lives.

“I wouldn’t normally sing this song but we all may need this right now and there isn’t a better place to sing it at than the Ryman. The mother church pulls things like that out of you and will tell you what to sing and when to sing it . . . even if you can’t. Happy Easter, love to you all.”
