Country music star Ashley McBryde's teacher told her that her dreams of pursing a career in music were "stupid." Ashley is proving that naysayer wrong...

Ashley McBryde has something to say to those who haven’t been supportive of her dreams, especially her tenth grade math teacher back in Arkansas, and that is ‘thank you.’ Believe it or not, Ashley McBryde’s teacher actually referred to her dreams as “stupid.” Rather than holding a grudge or giving up, the singer-songwriter made it her mission to prove that she could make it to the top.

“And for some reason I was like ‘Okay, well let’s make sure that you’re wrong.’ And people like that, you really owe them a debt of gratitude,” Ashley shared with PopCulture.com.

You heard right! The “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” singer has nothing but gratitude for her haters, as they have fueled her fire of motivation to keep chasing her dreams!

Little did Ashley McBryde’s teacher know, she would go on to create hit singles, receive Grammy and Emmy nominations, and accomplish so much more!

Earlier this month, the CMT Music Awards honored McBryde with the ‘Breakthrough Video Of The Year’ award for her single “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.” Check it out below!

Be sure to share this empowering story with others fighting for their own dreams. We hope Ashley McBryde’s teacher sees what has become of their former student…

Girl Goin’ Nowhere Lyrics

Don’t waste your life behind that guitar
You may get gone, but you won’t get far
You’re not the first, you won’t be the last
And you can tell us all about it when you come crawling back
That road you’re on, just winds and winds
Your spinning your wheels and wasting you’re time
But when the lights come up
And I hear the band
And where they said I’d never be is exactly where I am
I hear the crowd
I look around
And I can’t find an empty chair
Not bad for a girl goin’ nowhere
I get these calls, out on the road
Heard your song on my radio
We always said you’d make it big
And I tell all my friends, I knew you back when
So don’t forget all us little folks
And when you crash and burn
Remember we told you so
And then the lights come up
And I hear the band
And where they said I’d never be is exactly where I am
I hear the crowd
I look around
And I can’t find one empty chair
Not bad for a girl goin’ nowhere
I need to thank my daddy
For that first set of strings
And all those folks who swore I’d never be anything
It took a whole lot of yes I wills and I don’t care
A whole lot of basement dives and county fairs
To this show right now and y’all sure look good out there
Not bad for a girl goin’ nowhere
Not bad for a girl goin’ nowhere
