Ashley McBryde joined the Beers on Me Tour with Dierks Bentley and Travis Denning back in May, building close relationships with everyone on the tour. So when the tour came to a close in late August, she decided to go out with a fiery, fancy bang.

The “Girl Going Nowhere” singer shared a portrait of her road family from the Beers on Me Tour, hinting at possible mischief in her caption, “Family portrait time. This has been our road family since May 2022. Meals together, laughs together, weird-to-navigate-times together and most importantly, SHOWS together. Dierks, makes it so easy to feel like family. I’m grateful to get to work with every person pictured here. It’s sad to see it come to an end. But I’m so damn happy it happened and I’m looking forward to working together again. Now then. Time for pranks. #beersonmetour #dierksbentley #travisdenning #hotcountryknights #ourladyofthehighway”

McBryde followed through on that prank promise, surprising Bentley on stage while dressed as Reba McEntire.

In a TikTok post, McBryde shared a video of herself wearing a wig of long, curly red hair, a black western shirt, denim shirt, and black cowboy boots. While removing her wig after walking off stage, she says, “We just pulled our first really successful prank off on Dierks. We went out as Reba and her band. And that concludes the Beers on Me Tour for us.”

The video continues, showing McBryde standing side stage while Bentley’s Hot Country Knights band performs. She then makes her grand entrance, performing Reba’s “Little Rock” alongside Bentley’s alter ego Doug Douglason.

She captioned the clip, “Gotcha @dierksbentley 😏 whatcha think, did I make a good @Reba McEntire? #prank #reba #beersonme”

The Hot Country Knights showed McBryde some love after the performance on Instagram, teasing her appearance at the Seven Peaks Festival with the caption “one of our favorite gals will be at @sevenpeaksfest this weekend… counting down the days til we bring the 90s back THIS FRIDAY..!!!!!”

McBryde’s most recent album, Never Will, includes the top 20 single “One Night Standards” and “Martha Divine.”

The Arkansas native, who won the 2021 CMA Music Event of the Year for “Never Wanted to Be That Girl” with Carly Pearce, will be joining select dates of The Judds: The Final Tour along with Martina McBride.
