Country music singer-songwriter Ashley McBryde gets refreshingly real about basic needs with "One Night Standards." Listen to it here!

Earlier this year, country music star Ashley McBryde was sitting in a writer’s room of her management office in East Nashville with co-writer Nicolette Hayford and the seasoned songwriter kept coming back to, “It ain’t somethin’, I wanna spend a lot of time in… I ain’t gonna stay for the weekend…” before noting, “there’s something in that notion that not everything has to last forever.” After a whirlwind two years, the award-winning Arkansas native knew they’d landed on something special.

“We had to walk away from it to give it a second to breathe,” she now reflects. “When we got back in a room, this time Shane [McAnally] was with us and I joked, ‘You know, hotel rooms…they only have one night stand for a reason. They’re one night stand-ers.’ Shane and Nic’s eyes lit up, ‘Did you just say one night standards?’”

“One Night Standards” is the first taste of what’s to come from her highly-anticipated sophomore album. Listen to it below!

“One Night Standards” Lyrics

I ain’t gonna stay for the weekend
I ain’t gonna jump off the deep end
I ain’t gonna ask where your ring is
The thing is, we all got secrets
You don’t wanna hear about my last breakup
I don’t wanna worry about space you take up
I don’t even care if you’re here when I wake up
It’s just a room key, you ain’t gotta lie to me
Can’t you just use me, like I’m using you
How it goes is, the bar closes
There’s no king bed covered in roses
Just a room, without a view
I don’t want a number you ain’t gonna answer
Let’s just stick to the one night standards
Well I ain’t Cinderella, but who is
Call me what you want if the shoe fits
I ain’t gonna say I never do this, ’cause truth is
Lonely makes a heart ruthless
Ain’t nobody gonna hurt nobody
Ain’t nothin wrong with needin’ somebody
You can leave all that down in the lobby
It’s just a room key, you ain’t gotta lie to me
Can’t you just use me, like I’m using you
How it goes is, the bar closes
There’s no king bed covered in roses
Just a room, without a view
No I don’t want a number you ain’t gonna answer
Let’s just stick to the one night standards
How it goes is, the bar closes
There’s no king bed covered in roses
Just a room without a view
No I don’t give a damn about the morning after
Bottles on the floor don’t even matter
I don’t want a number you ain’t gonna answer
Let’s just stick to the one night standards
The one night standards
The one night standards
