Ashley McBryde's Weight Loss: How Much Weight Did the Country Musician Lose?

In 2021, Ashley McBryde (@ashleymcbryde) was forced to postpone a few performances during her headlining This Town Talks Tour in September 2021 after falling off a horse and landing on her head.

The accident left her with a concussion and necessitated scalp stitches. However, that was not a big issue for her career compared to issues she had because of her weight.

During Ashley McBryde's early days, people close to her who were actually working with her started saying her to run twice. As a result, she started getting unsecured and annoyed as well. She told Music Week that she was well aware of her size and didn't want to work out. She also claimed that she wanted to get healthy but hated running at the same time.

Ashley McBryde also revealed that her team wanted her to work on her physical appearance for the media presence. After all those comments and suggestions, she realized that it was time for her to work on herself as she didn't want people to whisper on-screen or while performing. She then started her natural weight loss journey.

The secret of McBryde's weight loss is nothing special but due to her body consciousness. The exact amount of weight she lost has yet to be reported. However, some reports suggest that the country singer lost more than 35 pounds. Ashley McBryde is self-conscious about her appearance and follows a strict diet to stay in shape. She is currently weighing roughly 62 kg.

McBryde looks very healthy and fit as of March 2022. Looking at her before and after pictures, it is very clear that the singer has worked really hard to shape her body better. As she wished, she now perfectly fits in-camera with her band members. We hope to see her rocking with her music and performances and we wish her the best.
