McBride & The Ride Re-form

The original members of McBride & The Ride — Terry McBride, Ray Herndon and Billy Thomas — have reunited and are performing at the Grand Ole Opry on October 19-20. A televised portion of their show will air on CMT on Oct. 20.

When they broke up, Terry McBride concentrated on songwriting with Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Reba McEntire and others, having hits with his compositions. Ray Herndon became a highly sought-after session musician and toured with Lyle Lovett’s band, and Billy Thomas has been touring with Vince Gill, Patty Loveless and others.
