"Bible and A .44" was written by Ashley McBryde about her father, who taught her how to hunt, pray, and spot a lie. He carried a Bible a .44 pistol, meaning he was a godly man you didn't want to cross.
McBryde recorded the song for her 2016 Jalopies & Expensive Guitars
EP. It generated a buzz when country star Eric Church invited the singer on stage during his Holdin' My Own Tour
to duet the song. The video went viral
, and her career was given a huge boost.
