Ashley McBryde Improvising a Not-So-Typical Country Song
Who knew Grammy winner Ashley McBryde was such a gifted improviser?

The country singer-songwriter had JHud cracking up by creating a song about the funny encounter right on the spot.
Members of ’90s girl group XScape — Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, LaTocha Scott-Bivens, and Tamika Scott — hilariously answered JHud’s burning questions about who in the group is most likely to join the Mile High Club (everyone agrees it’s Tiny) and who is the best cook (is it LaTocha or Tamika?).
